Bio

Will Anderson is not a middle aged Aussie comedian, he's an equally talented 19 year old musician who blends modern production with smooth vocals, didgeridoos, guitar and percussion to create a soulful one of a kind sound. His debut single "Notions" presents a clever mix of acoustic and electronic instruments and was written about shaping your own path. "The song is a conversation about loving someone or something and having influential people around you oppose it and advise against it. Its about saying "fuck it" and letting yourself love who you love and do what you love”.



This kid was born with music in his blood. However he didn’t pick up his first musical instrument until age 15 when he was gifted with his dads hand-me-down guitar. 4 years on and Will has not only mastered the guitar but can play over 10 different instruments including 3 face melting didgeridoo’s. This guy is the living proof that men can multitask playing most of these instruments live, at once.


After countless hours of practice and under the guidance of local aboriginal and non-aboriginal mentors, the 19 year old now carves his own didgeridoos from the tree’s in his hometown. “I have always wanted to share and in the incredible aboriginal culture and bring people together with my music, these didgeridoos have let me do that”- Will Anderson.

While still at school, he gained national recognition in 2015 by winning the Peoples Choice Awards at Australia’s largest singer/songwriter program Telstra's Road to Discovery and was named runner up in Queensland Music's Most Promising Male Songwriter competition in 2016. This was followed by several festival appearances such as Caloundra Music Festival, Caxton Street Festival and Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking in 2016 as well as supports slots with The Cat Empire, Busby Marou and Kingswood.



With a polished live show and a clear musical vision Will Anderson relocated from Mackay to Gold Coast at the beginning of 2017 to focus solely on music and is set to make a serious impact on the scene with the release of “Notions". 


“I wanted to create something new, something fresh, something that has never been done before” - Will Anderson on Notions.

Thank you for inspiring my Monday night filled with art and dance. Nothing beats the powerful sound of the didgeridoo. This is amazing.
