Wills & The Willing- London Country
Catalogue No.: SMASHGCD1
Release Date: 9th October 2020
In the first single ICEBERG to be taken from his forthcoming album LONDON COUNTRY, Ian Wills sings “I’ve never looked for perfection, Cos I know that I’m deeply flawed.” He is also incredibly honest, and this is just one reason why his confrontational and often stark use of language has elevated him to the position of one of Britain’s premier spoken word artists. Transferring these skills to a musical canvas with his band WILLS & THE WILLING has reaped praise from across the board including the likes of BBC Radio 2’s Janice Long, and even legendary guitarist Les Paul. The new album features a host of fantastic musicians including Sean Genockey (The Who, Manic Street Preachers, Kula Shaker), Mick Talbot (The Style Council, Dexys Midnight Runners) and world renowned goalkeeper Petr Cech! The Chelsea, Arsenal and Czech Republic legend is a keen drummer who has been taking lessons from none other than Queen’s Roger Taylor for more than a decade. The new songs dig deep into a rich vein of cinematic influences, sometimes brutal, sometimes apocalyptic, always personal, and never hiding Ian’s own vulnerability that brings the stories to life.
