Will And The People from London in England is a world reggae outfit comprising Will Rendle, Jim Ralphs, Jamie Rendle and Charlie Harman.
Maturity of compositions don’t deflect from the liveliness of the sounds as Will And The People, who have established a global audience with their flowing dance material that lifts the audience into a better place. A slow burning fuse was initially lit back in 2008 and it wasn’t until 2011 that the quartet were finally complete, but throughout the process of development each appearance added more to the audience base and this has continued ever since, with global tours and numerous festival appearances.
As you well know I am a sucker for the reggae off-beat and whilst Will And The People are a far better known band than most given first reviews on the site, it is the fresh enthusiasm that hasn’t been lost which makes this an outfit I think is worth drawing to your attention if you don’t know them already.
Whilst it is essential to remove all sharp objects before hitting play else you will inevitably crash into it as you dance around the room in carefree joy, underscoring the lightness of sound lays a connection with struggles worth defending that sits at the heart of the whole output.
About to set out on another couple of tours. One a UK tour Will And The People is well worth getting out to see and in all likelihood they will appear somewhere near you soon wherever you are as there is also a tour in India scheduled for April.
Yellow – Single – Will and the People is available on iTunes*.
