21 year old musician & songwriter Will Linley can’t remember a time in his life without music. Born & raised in Cape Town, South Africa, a career in music was a distant dream as he grew up singing with his three brothers and studied classical singing in high school. He began writing songs at a young age, and started teasing his music in 2020 on TikTok, where he found a global connection with fans through his honest lyricism and uplifting positivity. The singer’s debut single, “miss me (when you’re gone)” evoked a universal connection amongst fans and gained major traction after Will teased it online. “miss me (when you’re gone)” was released in November 2021, and has since gone #1 on radio in South Africa and has achieved Platinum status.
Will released his debut EP “kill all my feelings” in July 2022 to radio success and critical acclaim, with Texx & The City saying Will is “leading the charge” for pop music in South Africa, and The Honey Pop describing Will as a “true star being born.” Since then, Will has performed on the main stage at the Rocking The Daisies festival, toured around Europe with Matthew Mole, and opened for OneRepublic on their South African tour dates. Will’s latest single “Last Call” was released in December 2022 on Island records to critical acclaim and worldwide streaming success.
