Will and the People are more than just a band. They are a way of life. Living, rehearsing, being together, who are on a journey beyond the realms of conventional popular music. Will and the People have percolated into the gaps of the live music scene in the UK with their own unique sound, honest and fresh… they have naturally created their vibrations through a shared vivacity for all types of music… Though they will proudly state their main influence as being Bob Marley and his Wailers, the sound they make is thoroughly theirs, eloquently glistened and scattered with tones from many corners of song world. A solid band of individual talent combines them, and their forthcoming self titled debut album confirms and proves, with 11 irrefutable reasons, why
are still rising, despite their lack of conformity to the music industry around them… They just try to follow their vision without distraction, which is something to be admired in this day and age.
Their music is about love, about human angst, and most importantly about making people dance about all their qualities good and bad…
“Our music seems to have become a security for some people, which tells us we are doing something right and it is worth pursuing confidently as we are… there is nothing better than knowing it effects people… except maybe watching them dance in the moments… we know that love is to share”
We’re over the moon that Will And The People are coming to play to Trystonbury after bouncing around to their performances at Glade and Glastonbury this year. On top of their perfectly delivered, original and imaginative music, they are quite simply a great bunch of lads and we know you’re going to love them. Follow them on Facebook, where you can listen to some of their tracks. We especially love the exuberant, happy-go-lucky “Lion in the Morning Sun” and if we’re lucky, they might even treat us to their deliciously kooky version of ATB’s “9PM Till I Come” in their live show.
“A touch of Robbie Williams’ swagger, the Special’s darker sonic shades and a trace of the Police’s pop smarts. It shouldn’t work, but it does””
— Sunday Times Culture
“Gloriously tuneful and infectiously upbeat”
