Born and raised in South Porcupine, northern Ontario, Will now calls Hamilton home. Known for his touching, clever lyrics, charming stage persona and finger-picking guitar prowess he is a uniquely gifted writer and entertainer; a stand-out voice in the Canadian Alternative Folk-Rock circuit.
Will writes and plays in a number of styles because, as he puts it, “there is no genre for the Human Condition.”
