Biography

Will Cookson

Will Cookson

Will is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist working loosely within the alt-folk genre. He writes music for film & TV alongside releasing his own, deeply personal albums, often combining the two.

At the core of all of Will’s music lies emotional honesty and a gifted ear for tune. Combined with an inimitable vocal delivery, warm and fragile in equal measure, his songs invite you in and then take you away, somewhere safe where memories flourish and dreams can grow. It is no wonder that he draws comparisons with artists such as Sufjan Stevens, Elliott Smith and Nick Drake.

Will’s songs are used regularly by the BBC and filmmakers throughout the world. He also occasionally performs live.
