Singer-songwriter Will Varley has come a long way since his early days haunting the open mics of South London and busking around on The Underground. After releasing his 5th studio album in 2018, his largely sold out UK tour drew to a close with a triumphant show at London's legendary Shepherd's Bush Empire.
There is a depth to Will's songwriting that sets him apart, and has propelled his music far and wide. From songs like 'The Man Who Fell To Earth' which tells the heart-wrenching story of an Angolan immigrant attempting to enter the UK, to the hyper-engaging 'Weddings and Wars' in which he attempts a history of the world in under four minutes, Varley's songs seem to transcend themselves, marrying vivid imagery, politics, emotion and surrealism to capture his musings in a way that is quite remarkable.
