Will Sterling / Bio

Will started writing songs in Jr. High, inspired by a poetry teacher that made writing seem appealing and he took to it like a duck to water, he started singing in 1997 at the American Legion in Batesville, AR at the age of 21. This simply was not enough for Will. He then put his first band together “Direct Fire” and they took off. Playing every venue possible with this band for about a year with several local hits and a large following. Direct Fire broke up and sent Will into a storm of determination to replace the band. Then AngWish was born, this band was tighter, faster, and way more popular, online and locally. They toured the state as well as Texas for a short period when the call came. A Friend Gonzo Arzamindi was contacted by Epic Records and they had an interest in AngWish. The band loaded up and headed for California. They took some hard knocks out west and had one of the key members quit right before the action began. Back into a tailspin AngWish lost the contract. Will headed back home to Arkansas then up north to Indiana where he played the front man for several different bands, but nothing felt quiet right. He headed back to Arkansas dropping out of the music scene for awhile spending his time writing new material, then started recording once again. Will was growing tired of hitting the brick wall and a conversation arose between him and his dad about maybe taking a change of pace. His dad suggested Country music. Will fought this idea for awhile but later gave in. His Country album was on ReverbNation and Facebook less than a month and Will received a call from TMG Records, offering a record contract. His dream was coming alive. Stay tuned for the rest of the story cause we’re now in the present.
