STORY OF WHERE THERE'S WILL, THERE'S A WAY
Once upon a time, there was a little boy who loved music. Every day the piano called to him, "Play me, play me!" Sadly, his family was poor and could not afford a piano, much less music lessons. Fortunately, his school offered free violin instruction. The boy eagerly seized the opportunity to learn music. Picking up theory here and advice there, he eventually started composing music on the keyboard. With the aid of many friends, his musical journeys lead him to become a bad mamma jamma...
As the baby cries, shrilling tones turn into musical inspirations. Fatherhood breathes life into dormant compositions. Will invites you on an unorthodox musical journey where you will laugh, love, learn and enjoy life. Weaving optimistic positive messages throughout an array of musical styles and instrumentals, you realize the beauty in life's imperfections and how the times we share whether good or bad are what a life is meant to have.
Will Avery trained as a violinist for 13 years until his junior year in college, at which point his desires to write original music began to flourish. He played piano to relieve stress and periodically performed at a local campus restaurant, The Sandwich Shop. Will started writing children’s songs during a 10 year stint as an English instructor in Taiwan. In Taiwan, he published over 100 children’s songs, won CTS 2000 award for best host of Chinese children educational program “Mosquito Home Page”, worked with Taiwanese recording artists (Fan Zong Pei and Lin Hai graciously helped arrange track #1 So Darn Cute) and also filmed local TV/commercials. After returning to America, he took a 5 year hiatus from composing. Encouragement from fellow Washington and Lee alumnus and children’s song performer, Roger Day, and the birth of Will's daughter, rekindled his spirits to compose music once again.
Baby Gonna Holla, is dedicated to Will's daughter. The project serves up top-notch musicianship marinated in fun-loving experiences, sprinkled with appetizing instrumentals and slow roasted funk that falls off the bone and is tasty to the listener’s musical palate. The talented instructors at Bach to Rock deliver inspired performances. Funk, jazz, classical, rock and world vibes are blended into creative, upbeat, family friendly original songs that seek to leave listeners with positive energy. Baby Gonna Holla embodies Will's philosophy, "If you're having fun, you must be doing something right."
Baby Gonna Holla is scheduled to be released on 1/1/2014
