Folk music seems to come easy for this Will Killen, as he utilizes only a few sounds to paint pictures of love, loss and mental health.
The emerging songwriter hails from Leeds, England – just an hour away from one of UK’s most music rich cities, Manchester. He draws inspiration from talented musicians such as Keaton Henson, Daughter and Ben Howard.
Killen’s debut EP, Write You Out, was released on Dec. 12. The five-song collection showcases his effortless ability to display vulnerability and raw emotion through his songwriting. The perfect imperfections in his charming melodies set him apart from the rest. He stated,
“The EP is very much a bedroom record, and I didn’t want to hide that in the recordings. There’s plenty of bumps and scratches and a siren or two that always seemed to come at the most inconvenient times.”
Amassing millions of plays on YouTube through various tastemaker channels, Will Killen is well on the right track to establishing a healthy career from the comfort of his bedroom. It’s so easy to relate to the beautiful stories he paints with his music, which certainly makes him one to watch.
