Behind The Scenes With Will Knox


Q:Where are you from?

A:I grew up in London, moved to Boston at 18, and have lived in New York for the last 3 years.


Q: What type of music do you play?

A: I’d say alternative/folk. It’s somewhere around the Nick Drake/Richard Thompson/Elliott Smith genre.


Q: What is the best advice you have for people who want to break into the music industry?

A: Love the music, forget the industry. The music business is still figuring out how to be a business at the moment. If you love the music, you’ll be fine.


Q: How old were you when you started performing?

A: I was in a couple of rock bands when I was 15/16 (one of them was with Emma Davis as it happens). I didn’t get in to gigging regularly until I was about 18 when I got more in to acoustic music and moved to Boston.


Q: How many years have you been writing music for?

A:I started playing guitar at 14 and never really felt like I practiced, but I spent a lot of time making up little compositions & improvising. That led in to songwriting when I started playing in my high school bands.


Q: Where would your dream place be to perform at?

A: I’d love to play the Hammersmith Apollo – it was my local venue growing up, I always dreamed of playing there one day.


Q: What inspires you to write music?

A: Anything abnormal, but more often than not it’s listening to other people’s music.. Watching, hearing or seeing someone else’s creativity is always inspiring.


Q: What is the song you need to listen to when your feeling down?

A:  Basement Jaxx – Do Your Thing. Try not to smile..I dare you. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_n1FHX3mBw)


Q: Whats your favorite band?

A:Nick Drake, though Radiohead is in the running.


Q: What is your favorite song?

A:It changes daily, but if you played ‘River Man’ by Nick Drake on loop we’d be friends.


Q: If you could have three wishes come true what would they be and why?

A: 1. I wish healthcare was free, for so many reasons.

2. I wish there was a really short footbridge between London & New York, I hate flying.

3. I wish snow was a neutral temperature – winter’s coming up, I’m not too happy about it.


Q: When is your next album coming out?

A: We’re releasing a 5 track EP in January 2011. It’s coming with lots of fun surprises attached, please sign the mailing list if you’d like a reminder (http://www.willknox.com).

Q: If you could be in any place right now where would it be?

A really old fishing village on the south coast of Devon, England. It’s a little place by the sea I’ve been going to since I was born.
