People need to feel heard and acknowledged 

William has been singing and performing his entire life. He’s been writing music and poetry since he was a child. In the last 5 years, William started recording and producing original music from his bedroom in rural upstate NY. He has now released two singles with many more in the works. His classic musical theatre training, and his love for a broad spectrum of genres has made his songs a melting pot for music. 

He incorporates styles like Classic Rock, Hip-Hop, R&B, Freeform, and Alternative to his music. His knowledge and experience from performing in choral and accappella groups shines through his work. 

William finds solace in the music and artists he listens to, and is writing music to do that for others. His music offers a bridge to remind people they are not alone with their feelings - a message that there is someone to relate to. 

Growing up in the foothills of the Catskills, William has an affinity for nature and the benefits it holds. He brings the cathartic experience of being in natural environments to his music by elaborating on sounds heard in the wild. He interprets the instinctual, ancient love we have for nature and translates it into modern productions of harmonic art. 

William’s production work is alt-pop based with low resonating bass notes and funky synth/piano lines. He physicalizes his work by playing with different frequencies of vibration to create a song that can be felt both internally and externally. Vocal layering and distortion are used to build and transform his music. 

William draws from deep emotion in his writing. He tells a story through the lyrics. Listen to his work; share it with the people you know. He wants to know what you think.

The legendary Quaine teams up with the CMG BOSS!  Quaine delivers a menacing hook, followed by a perfectly crafted depiction of street dealings on verse one. Powerful violin strings rain over a thunders bass line and Money machines as Yo Gotti gives us a stellar performance with conviction.
