Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine) - Klangkarussell & Will Heard
I Can't Keep Up (feat. Will Heard) - TOURIST
Rumour Mill (feat. Anne-Marie & Will Heard) - Rudimental
Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine) acoustic session - Cara Delevingne & Will Heard
You may have heard these catchy tunes at the latest pregame you were at. What you didn't realize is that the same 24-year-old British dude, Will Heard, was the guy laying down the vocal tracks on all of them.
I like to think of Will Heard as the hotter and less awkward version of Ed Sheeran. Will is extremely musically gifted, and has taught himself how to play the guitar, sax, piano, bass, as well as percussion. Two years ago, he released an underrated YouTube video playing an acoustic version of Sonnentanz with Victoria's Secret model Cara Delevigne.
Since then, I have awaited the day when Will Heard would step into the spotlight and truly shine. It finally seems he is pushing in on the edge of that spotlight.
A few weeks ago Will Heard released a track with Rudimental called "Rumour Mill". They even let Will star in the music video. Better yet, they have brought Will on stage at some of the biggest UK shows of the summer, including the Glastonbury Festival and a show with Ed Sheeran at Wembly Stadium.
Although Will lacks a complete album in his name, he is getting closer and closer to creating one that will be heard and loved by millions.
