Discovery: Will Wood

Will Wood is an American singer songwriter who has caught my ear through his inventive and emotional new track Cicada Days.

By Graeme Smith

Cicada Days is a track with the kind of storytelling detail that gets you invested. Full of natural imagery and a sense of poetry, Will brings his world to life through his lyrics. But, for all the sense of nature, it’s a human story of love lost. And it’s beautifully augmented with an instrumental arrangement that is light, airy and emotive.

Will’s past involves addiction, mental health struggles and three studio albums. It all adds up to music that is mature, expressive, inviting and challenging. Cicada Days really is a special track that demands a listen. You can check it out below.
