With the album ‘Fragile’ Will Echo has penned ten timeless classics, full of energy and passion. To give a brief insight to the music and mind of Will Echo the following excerpts are taken from a recent interview.

On his music…

“a lot of my songs are written on a personal level this one (I Still Love You, But) was written more from observation, from seeing someone else in the situation of still loving their partner but not able to get on with that person or to make a clean break, so they carry on in the relationship while avoiding each other whenever possible!..
...I love the sound and rhythm of words, and there is always a song going around in my head. If it is something that I can relate to personally I will write from experience otherwise I will recall things that I have seen and write from images. I write a lot of songs from what I see around me, I’m interested in people and their lives and like to write and comment on relationships and life situations, it’s what makes the world go round, so hopefully other people can relate to them too.”

And the music of others…

….”I will listen to anything from early jazz and blues to the current chart scene. But if I had to name a few stand-out artists then for me it’s all about great vocal tone and delivery, so artist such as Ray LaMontagne, Otis Reading, Steve Marriot (small faces), Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison (The Doors), and Connor Oberst (Bright Eyes) etc… artists where the vocals jump out of the speakers and makes you listen. I love artists that write in a non-obvious way and create moods with their music and vocals. I can’t say if anyone has influenced me, it’s really up to the listener to say if their styles are present in my work.”

It seems that everyone is talking about Will’s what they are saying…
