Vancouver Island singer Wil will perform twice in the Comox Valley in the coming weeks to support a limited release album titled Hold Me On.
The album is a collection of songs taken from select unreleased commercial compositions and new demos. The album will be available Nov. 22 in hard copy form and may be purchased at the shows or via the artist’s website.
“I really have two careers: one as a singer-songwriter and touring artist and the other is that I create music for TV and film,” Wil says. “Many people don’t realize this and so I wanted to put together a collection of songs that I think best reflect what I do and where I am at in my musical career.
“This album will contain unreleased material from some of my favorite commercials, new mixes and demos of new songs that I want to share in a rawer format. I wrote and recorded all songs in my studio at my home on Vancouver Island.”
Wil will appear with Blackie and the Rodeo Kings on Nov. 26 at the Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay. He visits the Waverley Hotel on Dec. 15 with Cumberland drummer Kevin Haughton, a bill that includes special guest Ryan McMahon.
