When his last band, Electric River, broke up in 2015, Kent’s Will Whisson gave up everything to pursue a solo career.
It meant six months hard graft writing and practising, but his commitment didn’t end there.
He also sold most of his possessions, quit his job, and swapped his home for a campervan.
After spending the summer of 2016 in Belgium, Will busked his way around Europe, managing to secure some regular gigs, and also released a debut EP, produced by Brett Shaw, who has also worked with Florence and the Machine.
He also 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.
Will can now relax a little, playing some gigs on home turf.
After a set at the Lighthouse in Walmer at the weekend he plays gigs at the Rock Lodge in Oxford Street, Whitstable, on Thursday, November 30 and the Penny Theatre in Canterbury on Friday, December 1. A further date at The Bench in Ramsgate which had been due to take place on Sunday, November 12, has been postponed.
