He’s been playing music professionally since he and his brother Charlie were 8- and 10-year-olds sharing stages with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Doug Sahm, and the cream of the Austin music scene. Will spent his teen years making records, touring the world, and hanging out with a who’s who of rock royalty from New York to L.A. The singer/songwriter/guitarist is all grown up with a terrific new record backed by the Iguanas, “Don’t Walk the Darkness,” coming out March 6.
