Wil touring with new CD

Wil's fourth studio album Heart of Mine is poised to be his most personal release to date. 

Wil’s fourth studio album Heart of Mine is poised to be his most personal release to date.

A press release explains that while Wil has collaborated with others in the past, Heart of Mine is the first set he’s penned completely on his own. The 10-track affair was recorded by Wil and drummer producer Jason Cook at a small studio in Victoria.

“This is the first album I wrote entirely myself,” Wil reiterated. “It was recorded with a sense of freedom from time restrictions or A&R.

“Jason and I simply grabbed what we could grab in a moment and went with it, trying not to overanalyze anything or overcook it. That’s what happens live so we really tried to retain that feeling when we could.”

Highlights are said to include the “upbeat and inviting” first track Baby Talk and the introspective In My Skin.

“In My Skin is exactly where I’m at and I love it,” the musician self-assuredly states. “It may sound egotistical but it’s not. When you are good with yourself it’s far easier to give to others because there is always something there to offer.”

Heart of Mine comes out Oct. 25 and will be available digitally via iTunes and a physical copy will be available on Wil’s website. You can also pick up the disc at any of the shows he’s lined up across Western Canada this fall.

Wil and C.R. Avery perform Nov. 4 at the Waverley Hotel in Cumberland. The show starts at 9:30 p.m.

Admission to this stop on Wil’s Heart of Mine CD release tour costs $12. Tickets available at Bop City, the Waverley or by phoning 250-336-8322.
