Will has been an actor, singer and musician for most of his life. Growing up in Stoke-On-Trent, and attending Newcastle-Under-Lyme School, he was at the same time offered a bursary to study classical organ and piano at the junior school of the the Royal Northern College of Music at weekends. This led to him being offered a sixth-form scholarship to study his A-levels in English, Russian and Music at Eton College, where he continued to study piano and singing, and where he trained further in acting alongside the likes of Eddie Redmayne and Harry Lloyd.
Upon leaving Eton, Will went to study English Literature at Royal Holloway University, and continued to perform there and at the Edinburgh Festival. He then completed his training with a year at The Royal Academy of Music and a postgraduate diploma in Musical Theatre. His first job out of the Academy was playing The Lead Tenor in The Producers at London’s Drury Lane theatre. Since then he has performed in many shows including Les Miserables, Jesus Christ Superstar, Carousel, Chu Chin Chow, the prestigious production of Sweeney Todd with Imelda Staunton and Michael Ball, as Raoul in The Phantom of The Opera, Bob Crewe in Jersey Boys and more.
After leaving Jersey Boys in 2014 Will embarked upon a new adventure with a group he helped form called The 4Tunes. This four-part, male harmony group, singing their own arrangements of songs from classics to modern hits, have become a successful touring group, travelling the world and delivering sell-outs performances on cruise ships, at many prestigious events, and in London’s West End where they perform regularly at the Hippodrome Casino.
In February 2015 he took a break to begin work on his solo album, a project he has been wanting to pursue for quite a while, with Auburn Jam Music. And now, in July, it is finally complete and ready to be released in August. He is tremendously excited to share all of this original material with everyone.
