Hey William! Can I ask you what's the weirdest thing a fan has said or done at a show? I mean I practically chucked my ipod at you by accident and then you actually picked it up and gave it back and then proceeded to embarrass me in front of the whole audience.

Hey William! I LOVE both of your EPs SO much, they're so great oh my gosh <3 I was wondering, what would you say that the most important part of a song is to you? Lyrics, melody, etc? Can't wait to hopefully see you on tour soon! <3

Good evening, sir! Again. Our 2nd 1am meeting this week.
What has been the most difficult part of putting together the EP?
And I know we ask you this pretty much every day, but can we know potentially what YEAR you might make it to the UK?

What is your definition of a "good" song?


Oh, and do you have any plans to tour in Europe soon? (Cause it's about time you do) :)
A "good" song is one that accomplishes the writer's intention. In my case, I am happy when the production melds with and enhances the message of the song.

what bands were your main influence when you were growing up? which one made you decide that you wanted to be a singer/songwriter?

Well, as instructed ... Hello! :) First of all, you're brilliant, solo or not, and I love what I've heard so far, and can't wait to get Winds Will Change and Walk the Talk in the mail soon. As for questions, when was the moment you knew you wanted to be a musician? And will there be a meet and greet at the Tulsa show? I just bought my tickets. Me and my friend have been fans for years (I found We've Got a Big Mess on youtube about two months after you and the guys played at the Brady on the Sleeping with Giants tour. I was not a happy camper haha) and are so excited! Congrats to you for the great reviews so far!
Thanks for your support. I knew I wanted to be a PERFORMER well before I wanted to be a musician. Around 15 years old I started writing and performing my own songs at friend's parties and basement hangouts. From those first moments in front of people, interacting and seeing the effect my songs had on them, that's when I knew I wanted to do this.

Would you ever consider making a song shop like Max Bemis? It's a little like stageit I suppose, but this way it'd more permanent and personal. (If you're not quite sure what song shop is here's a link to Max's)
