PRESENTED BY LAYLA ANNA-LEE
Will Kevans is a UK-based singer/songwriter and master of the catchy pop tune and lyric. His song Dialling Tone recently won him an award in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition. It has also been featured on a compilation album released by Universal alongside artists such as James Morrison, the Goo Goo Dolls and Keane.
His unique Nashville-influenced brand of hooky songs have given this performer quite a reputation on the live circuit, where hes a regular at venues such as The Bedford, Cobden Club and The Troubadour. He was described by one critic as being Ian McNabb meets Squeeze. His heartfelt and catchy songs reflect lifes experience and the human condition. Will has just signed a publishing deal with Eaton music, former home to classic writers like Jimmy Webb.
The names associated with his debut solo album Everything You Do (due for release early in 2008) speak for themselves. He is currently working with producers Ian Grimble (Travis, Manic Street Preachers and The Enemy) Gavin Monaghan (The Editors, Ryan Adams, The Twang) and Andy Hughes (The Orb, Basement Jaxx). The first single has just been released through IRL Records (Damien Dempsey).
