After spending the last decade making records and touring, it was 2008 the music business was changing with the realization of iTunes, CDbaby, social networking, blogs, vlogs, and radio podcasts while Will was working on a bunch of new songs to be included in his album “Seven”. “ I was right in the middle of writing and recording songs for the album and I got a call from a couple different music publishers, TerriLynn Massey of Imagem/Rescue Records was one of them.”  She expressed that she was a big fan and wanted to push Will’s songs for placement in TV and movies. TerriLynn went on to help Will get his songs in multiple TV spots with NBC, and Warner Brothers, as well as movie placements. Within a few months Will’s music spread globally.  “It’s mind blowing when you get an email from someone across the world and they just want to you to know how much your music has impacted them.” Will went on to record many more songs that found their way into various TV and movies throughout the next several years. 


While working as a creative arts director for a local church and raising his family, Will's passion for music brought him back to form the Duo, “Two On Tuesday”, with Northern California musician, Madeline McArthur. Will and Madeline met in January, 2017, and their mutual love for indie acoustic rock, and similar playing styles developed into a great friendship, and music partnership. With their music serving as a bridge in creating wins for the community, Will and Madeline began bringing people together, helping local businesses thrive, and partnering with compassion organizations helping to restore health and unity within their community. After releasing their self titled album, and extensive live performances, The duo was recognized by the Sacramento, California music scene with nominations for the best new artist, and best Folk / Bluegrass band for 2019. 


Will is currently writing and performing his blend of americana music, releasing song singles, and getting his music placed in TV and movies.
