Album Notes
William Mimnaugh (wiL) is a contemporary roots artist who makes his home on Vancouver Island, Canada. Known for his fiery live show, enigmatic stage presence and mad skill with an acoustic guitar, the 48 year old front man (he tours with a drummer, and, on occasion adds players) is also known for penning ‘Roam’ flagship anthem to Travel Alberta’s stunning media campaign, 'Remember to Breathe'.
Not one for school, wiL's youth consisted of skateboarding and holing himself up in his room listening to music and drawing inspiration from a wide range of musical styles but It wasn’t until 1998, after hearing the flagrant use of an overdrive pedal on an acoustic guitar in Neutral Milk Hotels ‘In an Aeroplane over the Sea', that he really started refining and defining his sound and style, both of which would command rave reviews from critics in the live arena yet lack the emotion of his demo recordings and the raw dynamic and passion of his live show.
In 2011, with the help of peers, wiL began the task of acquiring the tools and skills necessary to record and produce his own music. The moderate success of 2014’s 'El Paseo’ coupled with the fact that the entire record was funded by fans cemented his belief that he was on the right path.
And so in 2017 while juggling a career as a songwriter and touring artist and a part time agricultural fencer, wiL began writing and recording his next release ‘Gold Mine’ "Each track, he says, came to fruition at different times but most often while riding my bike or working on the fence line. I would just record the idea on my dictaphone then go home and lay down a bed track. The process has been a long one but I refuse, at this point in my career, to settle. It’s true that I could release this record and nobody like it but what matters is that I like it. I want to be able to listen to these songs in the future and say “yep, I wrote that and I’m damn proud I did”. And I want people to know that it’s forgivable to f**k up. "That is really how I go about my life. If you can do that it’s half the battle, maybe more than half. I'm a late bloomer and I am OK with that. More than OK.
