Will Champlin on SoundBetter

Well, most people know me from having some great moments on live TV as an artist, Vocalist on NBC's The Voice. I've had some amazing opportunities proceeding that such as having one of my own songs as HBO's fall seasonal trailer, songwriting and arranging credit on One Directions 'Made in the AM' and much more I've been fortunate enough to have.

I've been a touring musician for acts like Poison, Glenn Frey, Billy Ray Cyrus, and even got some keyboard credit on Michael Jacksons post-mortem release 'Michael'. I was in fact on the Voice s5 and came in 3rd. I believe my strong suit and passion is production/arrangement, just finding that spark 'As Timbaland says' in a song idea. I would say my main strong suits genre wise are Future-soul, some Indie, Hybrid Trap and I mainly have been diggin acts like Flume, Chet Faker, Rufus Du Sol and other unique acts on the edge of tomorrows sound. I try and keep music as a lifestyle and let the career part happen by loving what I do.

  20. Review by Nicolas O.

    Great Singer. But is the kind of guy who doesn't care about your time. once accepting his proposal .. things like don't reply for days. or finally to say, "bad time because other clients asking for changes¨. At least I can prove "Soundbetter" made the money refund in hours. I Can´t say he sings bad, I just want to leave this comment trying to avoid this situation with other people. Sure Will don't accept again works when he has no time.

  6. A: I give them my word to work passionately on their music as if it was mine.

  9. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
