BioWill Jeffery describes his music as "beautifully shambolic smokey folk". His voice is definitely not the voice of an angel and his guitar playing isn't exactly Hendrix.....but that is part of his charm. The juxtaposition of gravelly vocals and chugging folk rhythms is the main ingredient for Jeffery's musical pie, with his backing band The Wild Gentry providing the all-important gravy. The addition of other musicians has allowed him to recreate the imaginary backing track, which played in his head whilst performing solo. The music now has the character and strength he's always wanted and is ready to take it to a larger audience. Always a well-received character on the Nottingham music scene, he is now ready to share his blend of gypsy folk with people further afield. Will Jeffery's far-reaching influences range from the sea shantys of old to the country-tinged folk of America; his biggest muse being the Man In Black himself, Johnny Cash. If he had to mention other musicians that have inspired, Lee Hazlewood, Leadbelly and John Sebastian will definitely pop up, along with The Doors and other bands of the sixties. Certain events and situations have inspired Jeffery to write some more personal songs of late. Lyrically, there is a darkness, but musically there will always be the need to tap your foot.
