Three chances to hear Will

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Bonfire Night Special -

When his last band, Elec­tric River, broke up in 2015, Kent’s Will Whisson gave up ev­ery­thing to pur­sue a solo ca­reer.

He sold most of his pos­ses­sions, quit his job and swapped his home for a camper­van. After spend­ing sum­mer last year in Bel­gium, Will busked his way around Europe, manag­ing to se­cure reg­u­lar gigs.

He re­leased a de­but EP, pro­duced by Brett Shaw, who has worked with Florence and the Ma­chine. Will rode a bike 450 miles from Kent to Northum­bria, rais­ing £2,000 for Can­cer Re­search, as part of the video for his EP Nowhere Bound.

He heads to the Bench in Rams­gate on Sun­day, the Rock Lodge in Ox­ford Street, Whit­stable, on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 30, and the Penny The­atre in Can­ter­bury on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 1. For de­tails and to lis­ten to Will’s EP, visit will­whisson.com.
