Our favorite thing about Detroit-bred talent William Bolton isn’t that groovy, suave and super unique Soul-Hop sound. It isn’t his ability to handle every piece of the art form, being able to write, produce and perform on his tracks. Quite honestly it’s his receptiveness to others and the general warmth he exhibits as a person.
They say the best way to improve your craft and grow as an artist is to communicate directly with your fans. Few emerging artists are intelligent enough to actually do this and understand the benefits. Willy B literally shares his cell number with fans, proactively asking for feedback on his music and encouraging folks to reach out. That insight is HUGELY important for shaping your sound, focusing and delivering exactly what fans desire.
As the homie continues to methodically finalize his upcoming project Love Supreme, he has been giving fans a few appetizers of what is to come. His newest original speaks to his own internal struggle with getting the full-length project out the door and evolving as an artist & person. “When Will I Know” eludes to the soul-searching of any human and relentless process of creating — messaging that speaks louder than music if you ask us.
