When I release an album it's everything, a story, a work of art, & a metaphorical documentary of my psyche’s exploration into the harshness & occasional tenderness the outside world has to offer off the beaten path..” -W “I've been singing my whole life, and making music since I was 15...I've been in a number of metal bands throughout the years...and always fucking around with acoustics on the side... I finally decided to sit down and record some of the stuff I always messed around with and ended up recording lots of stuff...different sounding stuff, raw very real sounding stuff. I thought long and hard & decided to release some of it..It didn't really fit with any of the other stuff I was doing at the time..so I decided since it was just me I'd lend my name to it. Turns out I have a very common name and others who have been blessed with decided to make music too...So I dropped an L and removed a space, put a period and ended up with the name Wil.T.
I put out my debut self-released record on July 4th 2007 entitled "In-between Sex & Drugs". The original pressing of the record was released under the name Will T. This was an extremely limited release – sold nowhere – the only 13 pressed copies were left randomly hidden across campuses, malls, & local shops across South Texas. That was before I realized just how many fellow William Thompson's there are...
As it turns out there are also a bunch of Wilt's...but luckily there is only one Wil.T! That's my story so far in a nutshell, there's other tidbits of random information for the avid reader below... The life I live is the life I sing... lets not over complicate things...just listen to the music & relax...” -W The “sound” of the music typically tends to lean more towards the sounds of the Lemonheads, mixed elements of the Violent Femmes, Nick Cave and such while managing to maintain a distinct unique sound. Wil.T started out as the singer for South Texas based Industrial Punk Thrash Metal heads Fuck the Main$tream, with whom he still plays an active role.
He has also fronted numerous side-projects over the years, some of which still play on occasion. Each one delving into various experimental amalgamated musical directions. Wil.T has three self-released albums through his Fuck the Main$tream Records. 2007’s “In-between Sex & Drugs”, 2010’s “So Gone, I’m Here” which features album art by longtime friend, collaborator, & Southpaw experimental industrial MC – Barragan & 2013's follow up album “Echoes in the dark” being released this coming July 26th 2013 through Amazon & Fuck the Main$tream Records Official.
