ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If Tom Waits and Tori Amos collaborated to form a new sound, the result might end up being something like the music of singer/songwriter Will Engel. Drawing from his experiences and the vibrations around him, Engel creates an abstract picture of the world that will provoke and challenge you, even as you dive deeper, lured by the accessible hooks. While his largely improvisational piano and vocal style evokes jazz, the song structure and rhythm elusively darts from blues to folk to 60’s psychedelia to Radiohead style explorations and back again.

Engel's recently released debut album "This Could Be Heaven" (Sea Glass Records) is a unique concept album. He began composing and recording in Boston over 5 years ago and completed this diverse collection of songs in California. Throughout much of the album, he uses a distinct lyrical and rhythmic style, creating songs that feel perfectly out of place. His intimate vocals fuel the conceptual stories of memorable folk ballads such as the album’s centerpiece, “Secrets.” As the album climaxes with the uplifting “Carpenter Someday,” Engel's jazzy delivery intensifies the spiritual, political and artistic meaning.

Since recently releasing, "This Could Be Heaven," Engel has become even more prolific, composing and recording new instrumental tracks for the web, performing live at various gigs (including SOHO), and generally causing considerable mayhem!

Featured in the Santa Barbara Independent on multiple occasions and on numerous radio stations, this Wesleyan University grad continues to receive recognition for experimenting with familiar song structures, pushing them until they’re barely recognizable and then turning you on to something all together different.

Thank You- This Could Be Heaven
I appreciate your putting the album in a new and clearer context than I would have been able to describe it. Thank you Melllow Yellow. The songs have become more bluesy, harder rock and more Anthony Braxton, Tierney Sutton, Sonic Youth like at times live but the spirit remains the same. Quite right.
