Meet Will Robert, whose music is a toe-tapping, guitar-slapping, crowd-clapping comprehensive good time.
Will sharpened his skills as a young street performer. Busking allowed him to buzz-off the diverse crowds who would stop and listen to him, allowing him to gauge their reactions and ultimately aiding him in perfecting his craft.
The release of Will’s 2013 ‘Mosaic’ EP came before he set off on a busking tour of Europe – captivating crowds in Hamburg, Berlin, Amsterdam and London. In 2015, BBC Radio 1 picked up “City Lights” from Will’s debut album Transitions and after receiving great praise from radio DJs and industry heavyweights. It became abundantly clear that, although Will loved street performing, he was destined for a grander stage. Listen to “City Lights” below!
Will Robert’s music is overflowing with thought-provoking lyrics and intricate rhythm guitar, it’s an absolute pleasure on the eardrums and we can see why he has been likened to an impressive list of artists including Ben Howard, Ed Sheeran and Bon Iver.
Will’s latest release came out last month and we are confident you will see and hear a lot more of him in 2016. Will kindly belted out his new tune “Mountain” for us in a spine tingling ticketweb session. Check it out:
