Since creating our Music Monday
Music Mondayseries nearly 4 years ago, I have never been more excited to introduce you to someone whose talent is simply extraordinary. With recent comparisons to The Script, One Republic & Adam Levine, "Tap Dancing On A Circus Wire" transports listeners to a soulful place, where music is key. Ladies and Gentleman, I’d like to present to you, my good friend, Will Champlin.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Will Champlin is holding his own among an industry of giants. From his education at Berklee College of Music in Boston to his time spent songwriting in Nashville, there can be no doubt that Will is a well refined musical Timebomb! An accomplished and versatile piano player, Will draws influence from artists like Stevie Wonder, Billy Preston, and Bruce Hornsby.
Will’s father, Bill, was a member of the infamous Rock band ‘Chicago’ for nearly 30 years and his mother Tamara is an accomplished songwriter and vocalist. Both parents strongly encouraged and fostered his natural musical abilities. In 2006, Will toured extensively as frontman for the Salvador Santana Band opening up for Carlos Santana and The Los Lonely Boys in Major Concert Venues across the U.S. In 2008, Will won for best R&B/Soul at the ‘Hollywood Music Awards’ for a song from his self-titled debut, ‘Now that we’re fallin’. Will has had the opportunity to work with many top songwriters in the business such as Andreas Carlsson, Keith Thomas, Michael Caruso, Rivers Rutherford, Eric Bazilian, and others.
Recently, Will Champlin finished his work on CTA’s new album “Sacred Ground” featuring Danny Seraphine and landed his first major-label cut on Heather Headley’s Grammy nominated “Audience of One” Pop/R&B/Gospel album produced by Keith Thomas. Will is a soulful artist with an R&B/Rock/Pop Style that pulses with honesty, attitude, and inspiration. Wills tenacity and passion is evident in everything note and lyric he sings. Nuances of his charisma and soul are captured in every song. This music will make you move and move you at the same time.
