Will River is an emerging independent recording artist who made his solo recording debut in 2018 with the single “The Wave”. That track introduced a multitalented Nashville-based singer, songwriter and guitarist. His sound is a fluid mix of pop hooks, insightful indie-folk lyricism, and blues soul.
Before going solo, Will River earned his stripes as a guitarist in a series of touring bands. Recently recognized as One to Watch by the prestigious Nashville Songwriters Association, since his debut Will has released a string of popular singles, as well as the 2019 LP Animals & Kings. For his latest, the guitarist teamed up with UK-based producer Dan Weeks.
“Echo” is the brand new single from Will River, released worldwide via all major streaming services on January 10, 2024. A finger-picked acoustic guitar opens the track on a dark Americana vibe. Subterranean bass tones rumble the floor as the singer steps to the mic with Stratocaster in hand. He offers a wistful look back at misguided intentions, failed relationships, and bad habits. As the track progresses, the mix builds to a cinematic dark and percussive Americana anthem, punctuated by some slick blues guitar licks.
