My Nord Stage 2 plays like a dream as it's easy to use for live performances, features the best and richest piano sounds, authentic organ settings which can be manipulated at my finger tips, an advanced synth library which allows me to upload my own samples, and the feel of the weighted keys are far superior to any other I’ve played before

Will was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Kicking off his music career at a young age, his early work involved Evangelical church organ playing, and directing the church choir. Will was also involved with a number of bands and recorded several albums with the likes of metal bands Lykeum and Psychotic Gardening, as well as adult contemporary artist Julie Biggs. These bands toured all over Canada, and shot music videos to accompany their albums, which were highly acclaimed.

Since moving to the Middle East and joining The Boxtones, the band have signed a record deal with Universal Music MENA, released their debut album ‘Home’ and are touring in late 2017. They have also won BEST MUSIC ACT at both Dubai’s Time Out and Hype Music & Nightlife Awards. On the performance front, The Boxtones have shared the big stage with Bryan Adams, Elton John, Kaiser Chiefs, Stereophonics, Blur, Lily Allen, Richard Ashcroft, The Ting Tings, Pharrell Williams, The Who and Jason Derulo.

Will has made the transition from corporate work to being a Universal Music artist – and it’s a dream come true!
