One of our finest guitarists, Will’s playing always shines.
In this new quartet, Will is joined by gifted musicians Clovis Phillips, Jack Gonsalez and James Batten – a tight collective of highly-experienced jazz instrumentalists. Their carefully selected sets typically consist of timeless laid-back swing tunes, punctuated by sharply-focused fiery passages that delight. Their sound is fresh, consistently breathing new life into some classic works, alongside Will’s memorable compositions that leave audiences wanting more.
To date Will has performed with the likes of Gary Potter, Frank Vignola, Dan Cassidy, Alan Barnes and John Etheridge at some of the UK’s top theatres, clubs and festivals including Ronnie Scotts, 606 Club, Royal Albert Hall, Brecon Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival and the International Gypsy Guitar Festival.
