WiL coming to The Vat
Singer/songwriter WiL plans to share his lesser known side with a Red Deer audience on Thursday.
The Calgary native, now based on Vancouver Island, says there are really two sides to his music career.
Fans will be familiar with his material as a singer/songwriter — WiL’s fourth album released in 2011 was Heart of Mine.
Listeners will be less familiar with WiL’s work for television and film. But he has composed a lot of commercial jingles as well as inspirational flag-wavers, such as Ride for the Calgary Stampede’s 100th anniversary, or the five tunes that accompany Travel Alberta’s Remember to Breathe ad campaign.
The three-minute flagship video featuring his song Roam won the Diamond Award as best entry in an international film and media competition in Berlin.
“I wanted to put together a collection of songs that I think best reflect what I do and where I am at in my musical career,” said WiL of his newest CD, which will contain some commercial demos, as well as brand-new songs in a stripped down format.
He performs at The Vat. For more information, please call 403-346-5636.
