Los Angeles, 1993: Being blessed in his mother’s womb by music legend Little Richard was how Will Sweeny’s career and life began, when the icon placed his hands on her pregnant stomach in a hotel lobby, and shouted ‘God bless this child, Lord!’

English through and through, but with such a life blessing linking him to the US, it’s no wonder Will has gone on to perform his music around the world and has now returned to Los Angeles to record his debut solo venture.

Will hails from Cheshire, England, where as soon as he was old enough to sit up, he would spend hours hitting upturned pans with wooden spoons. His love of music and drumming had begun. He got his first set of drums as a young child, and went on to study music in college. It was there that he formed his first band “White Eskimo” playing drums, and his music career took off in the UK. Will soon became the group’s frontman, and went on to perform his music in England’s hottest venues, including The 02 Arena in London, Brixton Academy, and his packed and extended residencies at the infamous Cavern Club. He has opened for top groups including The Jam, and has appeared regularly across National television and radio, including The BBC and ITV. Will even brought his previous band to LA and entered the live scene at the top with an opening show at The Whiskey and a resounding demand for more US shows….

Which Will has now made the exciting move State-side as a debut solo artist to fulfill!

He has spent his time during quarantine honing the music he has always wanted most to create, and writing new songs for his album release. Will shared about his new solo music, “I want to bend marketing rules, break the usual boxes people try to tick when classifying a new artist…my influences are everything from Elvis Presley to Guns N’ Roses, and that really shows in my sound and writing”. Will goes on to say about his live shows, “I like to knock people off their feet with the electricity of performing, make them want the night to never end. My stage act is all about fun, showmanship and connection.”
