Ltd edition release of debut album “Morning Sun”

People of the future….

So my band of fellow agitators and me have been hard at work in the studio, as you may or may not know, for the past couple of months…. We have produced an album I am incredibly proud of, and I feel there is something there for everyone….

I ask myself: “What is Will and the People”…. And there is only one answer now… we are a group of likeminded musicians, artists and engineers who all share at least on thing in common… in this case it’s music….

I wouldn’t want you to think however that this is the only thing we share… We also share toast for example… and shoes (anyone who’s a size 10 can join in)…. and a love for Bob Marley…… amongst others…

We all love to travel, and since we are young… we enjoy a party too… So we are thinking… we want to bring our party to you as soon as humanly possible..

Back in the day, Johnny popular would have pre ordered the new Beatles album weeks before it was released and upon arrival invited all his friends to come and listen to it in the top room of the house away from the old people.. you would have all listened to it from beginning to end.. properly.. some would have been bored after a few songs.. but still would have listened to it because everyone else was…. Things haven’t really changed have they!!?

So when/ if you get a copy of our new record “Morning Sun”… you can expect a listening experience… I have always said my music needs to be listened to in that way… because… well i get bored if I have to write every song the same and if you don’t listen to them together… there are many different flavours on the record and I think they massively compliment each other… the sweets to the sours if you will.

So what we are doing is making 2000 limited edition copies of the record, which we will be selling at live shows… These will be special… because they are PHYSICAL and you can listen to the CD in your car.. or in your kitchen.. or your bedroom..

I don’t doubt they will make their way onto ipods… that would be great… but this album will be released properly later this year and it will be available everywhere..

I just want some of you hard core fans to get copies soon since.. well its been a while hasn’t it...

Please don’t ask me to send you one though… if you really want it you will come to a gig (we have plenty) and we will be selling them there… I can draw a picture on it too if you like… that would be fun J

I ate 12 oysters yesterday…


didn’t used to like them but LOVE them now… Bit of shallot vinegar, bit of Tabasco, bang.. done…

Sorry I have drifted…

Basically WATP is upping the game now… you should come to a gig and see us… we have some new members… it feels right… that’s all I have to go on… we will all be living together 24/7 playing and making music… we want to do some art exhibitions too, made up of photography and random art… I can’t draw but really want to be a painter… which is a strange combination… don’t know if it works of not but its pleasurable in my head… (haven’t started yet!)

There will also be a version of the album we will release later this year, mayb early next... called “midnight sun”

This will be club orientated and will have dubsteb/ electro/ drum and bass / minimal / electro versions of all of the songs on “morning sun”

Being completely honest our dream is virtually impossible without you all… we need you more than my digital words can tell you.

Yea baby yea..

Bring it on.

Love, magic

24 years old

I am feeling free.... I have a band you see, and a love for making music...
Its kinda cool because the state of the music industry at the moment is in such a place that bands who love to tour have the upper hand.....
And i have decided that buying a wagon me and my homeslices can travel around in and sleep in while we play is the best idea....
And the best thing about that is is it's a dream come true; travelling around the world playing music.. I am doing this blog because this is the best means i have of reaching people to tell them... well... if you like music and like seeing bands play.. and stuff... you should check out our music at
maybe come and see a live show sometime all of our timings and movements are up there...
We are aiming to come back to europe before christmas for more crazy loco and we will be selling our debut album everywhere we go... Which will also be available on itunes this summer..
oh the summer... how i love the summer...
I really think if you are searching for some kind of soundtrack for the sun over the next three or four months and haven't found one still.... my album... titled "Morning Sun" (if you know me - i know..... it has changed.... again.... but lets be honest this ones better!!!?)


so sue me

anyway i love you very much if you have read this... do me a favour tell your friend who lets you eat nutella from their pot with your fingers: "Check out this cool new band Will and the People.... they are ....." I'll let you do the rest!!!

Big love in a unifying manner

and lots of it..

Well done mankind for lots of things....

lets concentrate on the positive... which I will overshadowed by our gloomy cousin: "The negative" most of the time nowadays... we should try to change that really shouldn't we...

Whatever you do just do if for the right reasons, you know what they are.
