2017 · Artist of the week

Will Heard / Artist of the Week/ 25/05/17

It’s that time of the week again, that time where I share with you an artist I have been loving over the past week.

This week’s artist is the amazing Will Heard, Will is the most mainstream act I have spoken about in this series but after watching him perform live on 4 music’s coverage of Brighton’s Great Escape Festival last Friday, I had to write about him.

Let me give you a bit of background, Will is a 26-year-old singer-songwriter from London who is best known for his work with British drum and base band Rudimental and his smash hit back in 2013 ‘Sonnentanz’. However his debut EP is what really stands out to me.

Will release his Trust EP back in February through Black Butter Limited and I love it. Will fuses pop and soul to create his own sound that is distinctive and makes for easy listening. I find myself listening to Trust later in the evening as I find it really soothing and it helps me to wind down as it has a very light and warm tone. Wills voice is honestly one of the richest and most powerful I have ever heard, it extremely comforting.

Will has also released an acoustic version of Trust which I really enjoy, I love how he has put the songs out there in two different ways, I personally love both versions and I  alternate between the two.

I really hope that I have convinced you to go and give Will a listen if you don’t already. All his links are below. Thanks for reading and I will see you in your next post, byeee
