Mei asked Will a few fun questions for this Q&A.
Where was the first your first show?
Exit/In, Nashville TN
What artist/ band would you say you are most influenced by?
Depends on the day...Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Hank Williams to name a few
Sushi, Asian Flank Steak sandwich from Mitchell Delicatessen in Nashville TN
What is one of your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experiences?
I played a gig one time at a brand new venue, and by "brand new venue" I mean they hadn't finished the construction on the place. They still had sheetrock that hadn't been put up on the walls, they didn't have power to half the bar, but they'd announced my show as the grand opening and had to go. Actually, I've had a couple of those. I like to think we blew the walls off the joint.
What two words would best describe your music?
True and soulful
