In the fall of 2021, he released his 11th album, "Big Shiny Spoons," which has been nominated for a 2022 Western Canadian Music Award.
Will discovered his talent for writing kids music while completing his bachelor or Education at UBC.

To date, Will has performed 2,000+ shows at festivals, theatres and schools across Canada and China.
Will’s 11 albums in English and French have garnered national acclaim, including a 2017 JUNO nomination, 8 nominations from the Western Canadian Music Awards, 3 from the Canadian Folk Music Awards and 2 from the SiriusXM Indies. In 2015, UBC’s Faculty of Education honoured him in their top 100 Alumni Awards.
In 2019, Will premiered his kids' symphony orchestra show with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, and during the pandemic, performed his show with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra available virtually through TheConcertHall.ca. He's very excited to present his symphony show with the Vancouver Island Symphony Orchestra and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra this spring.
This fall, Will's excited to release his new French collaboration with fellow children's artist and French educator Seeka Sings called, "Will et Seeka: Amis avec tout le monde." The album is available for pre-order now and will be released on October 21, 2022. This show will be available for touring in 2023.
