Since 5 years old William has been knocking out interesting tunes far beyond his age; Knight Rider (later revamped as Just Jazz) was one of his first tunes at five, age 6 brought his very popular Bacon & Eggs, along with that award wining composition ‘Shark Catching The Rainbow Fish’.From classicial he soon became aware of jazz and blues, more recently rock and roll, so his diverse in playing almost anything is much to his credit, and for those of us who are following him into the great wide open can listen and enjoy what this young guy can perform in the future.

From here bio: “Fine Art photography is the best way to describe my work…perhaps? From Landscape to Street, Abstract to Portrait. I try to breath -using what my mind sees- a new life into my images.”
