Take a pinch of lyrical sweetness and optimism, add a smattering of road weary darkness and serve it up live like it's your last night on Earth and you’ll have a small taste of the Canadian contemporary roots outfit known simply as WiL. 

Coined by press as "the best acoustic guitar player ever", WiL is the first to maintain that is not true but he will concede that he possesses a very particular style; one that comes with a measure of inherent talent and an immeasurable amount of experience; both on and off the road. As such he has had the honour of sharing the stage with music heavyweights like Burton Cummings, Feist, Ray LaMontagne and Mavis Staples. 

WiL is currently writing and recording material for his forthcoming album 'Gold Mine' due out later in 2018. The band will be performing occasionally this summer and fall. To be notified first about any upcoming shows, visit bandsintown and click the TRACK ARTIST button.

It's a testament to his on-stage performance that a singer/songwriter with a guitar and only a couple backing musicians could play for two straight hours, and it never seemed to drag on”
