Will Whisson

June 16 @ 21:00 - 23:30

At long last, I’ll be returning to Ashford to play at The Windmill Inn as part of a run of dates that sees me cover the UK.
Expect new tricks, sounds and songs!

——————————————————-

Despite only launching himself as a solo performer in July 2016, Will Whisson has introduced himself as one of the most exciting new talents to emerge from the UK recently thanks to the release of 2 successful EPs and a no-rest-for-the-wicked touring schedule.

Trading in his home, job and possessions for an old camper van and a life on the road, Will began his journey by busking on the streets of Belgium and has continued to build up his profile with a ferocious tenacity. 150 gigs, 10 countries and 2 EPs later, it’s safe to say he has already covered some distance, gaining support from fans and critics along the way.

Will’s most recent EP release, entitled ‘Nowhere Bound’ (produced by Peter Miles (Dry The River, Lonely the Brave) came out at the end of 2017 and can be heard here.

The music video for the title track of the EP, was shot immediately after the studio session and saw Will ride a bike 450 miles (the length of England), raising over £2000 for Cancer Research in the process:

With Record of the Day predicting – ‘he’ll be winning lots of new friends with this simply gorgeous blend of organic folk-tinged pop,’ Will continues his upward trajectory across Europe with a sound that is one of optimism, positivity and freedom.
