Formerly the solo project of Alexander Simpson, William Within is now a thriving young quintet in the Twin Cities. You could call this band a 'folk' band, but that wouldn't do it justice. The group taps into many different styles, including Jazz, Bossa, Bluegrass, Psychedelic, and more. WW is currently performing songs from its debut full-band album as well as some older songs off of Simpson's 2011 solo release For Your Nostalgic Pleasure. Since forming in September 2011, William Within has already opened for national touring act Peter Wolf Crier, performed a live in-studio on the local radio station Radio K (KUOM), and developed a strong following in the Midwest region. In April 2012, William Within won 10 hours of recording time through UMN's Spring Jam Battle of the Bands. WW has played many different venues across the Twin Cities, including the Fine Line Music Cafe, Whole Music Club, Coffman Memorial Union's Great Hall, Kitty Cat Klub, The 400 Bar, The Amsterdam, Red Stag Supperclub, Honey, and the Acadia. William Within consists of five experienced and driven musicians: Alexander Simpson, Derek Rohlf, Tom Steffes, Matt Blake, and Toby Ramaswamy.
