WiL Releases Eclectic New EP SONGS

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Calgary raised, Vancouver Island based singer/songwriter WiL is set to release Songs, an eclectic 6-song EP, on September 9th through Cordova Bay Records. September 9th also marks the start of a Western Canadian Tour that will begin and end on the Island, and includes a coveted opening slot for the legendary Mavis Staples in Calgary on September 17th. See below for a full listing of tour dates.
Known across Canada for his incredible guitar-string-breaking live performances, WiL is a performer that keeps getting better with age. At 45 he is comfortable in his skin – at home he balances out a weekly regimen of cycling and karate that help him focus on his music. And that is exactly what WiL did after coming off the road from touring in support his acclaimed 2014 album El Paseo.
Armed with the tools and knowledge that he gained from working with talented musicians and producers on his past recordings, as well as his years of commercial composition work experience at 6 Degrees Music, WiL felt the time was right to take on the task of recording an album all by himself. The result is a six song EP, free of inhibition and genre restriction; a standalone collection of music simply titled Songs.
"As with my last album El Paseo, a few of these songs were actually born from commercial ideas worked on under extremely tight deadlines, a process that I have surprisingly found works extremely well for me," WiL explains. "‘Tonight’, for example, was born over a few hours with guidance from Alec Harrison for a feature film called Night Pond. And ‘Our Song’ was a commercial demo developed with my mentor Dan McManus (from 6 Degrees Music) who possesses an uncanny ability for helping me discern and discover what best serves the song."
Look for WiL on tour in support of his new EP starting on September 9th. Please visit ibreakstrings.com for the most up to date tour listings. WiL's new EP Songs will be available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers/streaming services on Friday, September 9th through Cordova Bay Records.
