For those who have never heard of Will Wallace before, who is he and what is his music about?
A northern lad who just wants to create music regardless of genres or labels, and the music is about reflecting this and demonstrating that you don’t have to put yourself into one single ‘box’ or ‘style’ as an artist, just create what makes you feel good & people will understand the passion.
What has been the most rewarding/ most enjoyable highlight of your career so far?
Getting to work with so many talented and interesting people from different backgrounds. Sometimes as a producer, you spend most sessions alone trying to come up with something interesting, that we forget that music is a collaborative form of entertainment. So when I get to share it with people – whether that being in the studio or just discussing cool music and ideas with people – it reminds me why I wanted to do this in the first place.
What have been some major challenges in your music career so far?
Roadblocks that you set for yourself. Sometimes you feel like that song you just made or that idea you had just aren’t good enough, and that is usually the biggest setback for myself.
What are you grateful for right now in this moment?
I’m grateful for any amount of support on my music, it really does feel so rewarding. I’m grateful for family and friends, as well as good mental health during these tough times.
Physical copies or streaming sites?
Streaming sites for sure, it’s too convenient. You can listen to new music wherever you are, and as someone who is a huge fan of music in general, is the best feeling. I do have some vinyls though, more for memorabilia sake rather than listening pleasure.
What was your most played song of 2020?
Zedd – Funny (feat. Jasmine Thompson)
A playlist you can’t get enough of?
I don’t listen to curated playlists too often, I have a bunch of my own & I usually just listen to different artists’ selection playlists to see if there’s any cool music I can discover.
A dream collaboration?
Either Zedd or Skrillex, both are insanely talented producers/songwriters who I have looked up to since I was in my early teens.
& Lastly, what can fans expect from Will Wallace in the coming year?
Some more genre bending music, and if normality resumes in the UK, hopefully some live performances/Club shows!
