Will Lone Show Schedule

Seattle, WA Shows

Shows:

Will Lone is a Seattle based drummer and improvising artist and has been immersed extensively in music since 1998, cultivating a dimensional and melodic style of drum set playing. He performs regularly in and around Seattle with numerous groups of different styles, and has worked with many acclaimed local musicians including bassists Geoff Harper, Chris Symer and Ev Stern, and pianists Bill Anschell, Eric Verlinde, Tim Kennedy, and Darrius Willrich.

Will found his artistic calling at a young age, and in addition to his music has won awards for both his poetry and visual art. Throughout his early school years Will spent his time playing in jam bands and jazz combos, and in 2009 was awarded Outstanding Instrumentalist at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in Moscow, Idaho. In 2010, he spent 6 months in Chennai, India, studying tabla and rhythm, as well as teaching, touring, and recording. Will’s experiences in India opened doors to a blending of his knowledge of jazz, funk, and blues forms with a more worldly and spiritual musical language. Exploring Javanese gamelan and traditional African drumming has also enhanced his understanding of this language, as well as his awareness of phrasing, tonality, and the deeper levels of rhythmic structure. Will is currently working on a Bachelor’s of Music at Cornish College of the Arts, studying under Chuck Deardorf, Mark Ivester, Jarrad Powell, Dawn Clement and Kofi Anang. Additional studies with the legendary Denney Goodhew have further expanded Will’s connection to the spiritual and multi-dimensional aspects of breath, arc, and form.

Will Lone and his various bands, groups and ensembles play shows in and around Seattle, WA. They offer a variety of different styles and both Will and his bands are available for hire! Will is available to sit in as a drummer for your next show; or you can hire one of his bands for your next event. Will is involved in a number of jazz groups as well as funk and blues bands.
