Will Bolden has been singing for more than three decades. His sound combines the hip, pop culture in which he has been raised with the soulful sounds of a gospel church. His natural talents caress the eardrums as his passion for music encircles the soul. Will is exceptionally gifted in lyric writing, song production, and vocal arrangement. He has written, produced, and collaborated on a half dozen albums of various genres including smooth jazz, rock, praise and worship, hip-hop, and gospel. In 2002, Will’s song “Want You,” debuted on WJAB 90.9 FM in Huntsville, AL, and was put in regular rotation.
Will has performed with the well-known Central Florida jazz ensemble, the Sunnie Paxson band. He has lent himself to many charity events and homeless outreach projects. Will and his wife Jevon completed their first album, "A Father’s Love," in 2008--a fusion of contemporary Christian, jazz, soul, and hip-hop.
In December 2008, they shared their talents with the Center for Contemporary Dance by writing an original piece for their production "Colours of Courage: a Celebration of Black History." They performed the song live on January 2, 2009 with the dance company on the popular morning show "The Daily Buzz." In January 2010, they performed at the nationally celebrated Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts. During the same month Essence.com ran a feature article on their commitment to music and family.
These days Will leads the music department for a local church in Sanford/Lake Mary and is writing and producing new songs for upcoming artists projects.
