Where: Toronto, ON
Describing her sound as “an authentic blend of pop and R&B vocals on top of…hip-hop/trap percussion… layered with melody,” Toronto artist WILL saw her song “Palisades” connect with Searchlight listeners from coast-to-coast. She is looking to add to her already impressive skill set by playing more guitar and piano. “For now, when I listen to music, I like to get lost in the artists’ instrumentals and lyrics,” she told the CBC. “I always try to dissect the meaning and thought behind a song to find out what emotion and story the artist was trying to convey” – and that’s a rewarding exercise when applied to WILL’s own output.
