Following on from the release of his debut album ‘Out of The Woods’ in 2019 - Will Whisson kept busy by writing and recording his much anticipated sophomore record throughout the pandemic while harnessing an online community via livestreaming.
The new album entitled ‘Different Sides’ is a collection of romantic songs that touch upon the many faces of love, while his sound, captured to tape, takes on a new orchestrated height with lush string sections intersecting with carefully crafted lyrics and melodies.
Backed by an exceptional band of musicians and co-produced by Peter Miles at Middle Farm Studios, this collection of material is Will’s most ambitious body of work to date and showcases ideas that would have been impossible to foresee when he started his journey back in 2016.
It’s a story that began with an acoustic guitar and a rusty old camper van in the hope of becoming a travelling musician via the route of busking on streets all over Europe. With an album, several EPs, as well as hundreds of gigs and thousands of miles under his belt, the release of 'Different Sides' is a fitting way to cap a journey that is rare and hard to match.
The album continues to win fans around the world, including English troubadour Frank Turner, who notified his own fanbase towards Will's music after hearing the song 'These Days Are Dead.' Notable support has also come from BBC Introducing and Record of the Day.
Will currently lives in London and has recently setup his own studio to help continue his development as a songwriter and producer.
