Album Notes
Devastated at 5 by the sudden demise of my Mum, left with one mournfully ravaged often times furious Father began the quest of this wounded youth.

Being of Northern Eurpean lineage, Irish/Germanic from Dad and English/Germanic from Mum,

I naturally gravitated toward British Pop.

Born in the midwest to a middle class family I was

fortunate to have a populous household.

There was no shortage of vinyl records left behind as siblings one by one went off to university.

Dont know exactly how I was turned on to The Beatles but ever since I heard this group of lads I was hooked.

One neighbour relayed how when I practiced my John Lennon scream, it sounded as if I was being butchered.

Nothing like an artfully placed squeal in a tune.

There were other instances I would come home wearied from days work and I would crash to Who music at strident levels.

I still lived at home and always closed the windows. To be honest I only played records at volumes just short of deafenig when it was but me.

Started writing music when I sent away for a rhyming dictionary, this was in my late teens.

I found bandmates with similar interests and enjoyed being on stage and performing live, hiding all the while the jitters by bobbing my head and body.

I moved to California as I was fed up with the hot humid summers and seemingly endless bitterly cold winters.

I was fortunate to be allowed to live with my Sis and her husband to be for a year.

We formed a band but lacked management, potential was there but just was not to be.

Other than writing and performing I found a new love in surfing...oh how I would invest copious amounts of time in the sea, sometimes wondering why I was out in storm waves, pondering how I would navigate my way toward shore.

I am intentionally leaving out a portion of my life, it was discouraging and oppressive.

I invested a great amount if not all of myself serving others and was rarely appreciated.

I leave blame to myself and my lack of judgement.

I chose my path, I also chose to move on.

Will the artists is as almost as complex as counting sand by the sea.

One has to intimately be with one to sincerely know one.

All of us are this way, too often times we rush.

I made this mistake once and intend not to repeat again.

I am a Postman by trade, what I do is not who I am.

When asked to elucidate who Will is, I candidly state I am a songwriter,poet,singer, musician.

I celebrate you the listener.

Without you, we the artist are but one that is unkown.

Welcome to my home.

Some quotables I hold as my own ...you may also read my poetry under the "blog" section on my myspace page.

" Man often becomes what he believes himself to be.
If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing,
it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it.
On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it.
I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the
---Mahatma Gandhi

IT'S UP TO YOU...Believe in yourself...believe in others, share , grow, love , give, take chances, embrace all life has to offer...good and bad, face calamity and be strong for those that are weak, for when you are lacking others will strengthen you.
One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream
One tree can start a forest
One bird can herald spring
One smile begins a friendship, One handclasp lifts a soul
One star can guide a ship at sea
One word can frame a goal
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom One step must start each journey,
One word must start each praye,
One HOPE will raise our spirits
One touch can show you care
One voice can speak with wisdom
One heart can know what's true
YOU SEE..... IT'S UP TO... YOU ?!?!?!?" ----------
I am here on this Earth I believe to serve...I am a musician, songwriter, I also write poetry. Furthermore I am not selling my music to attain great wealth and become a "rock star".Best way to convey this is to simply say..If I attained notoriety , it would be because I am sought after for my work. This is most important, for sure, who does not want to be a success at what they love to do, it simply is not my motive. My goal is to be loved for my music and the words written.
My work is my music and poetry, it is here for you to enjoy and be touched, to be inspired and to be celebrated.
The poetry I pen are abstracts at times and mirthful at others. The basis of my work comes from life as I portray it and have experienced it.
Money is a means for me to live, so I can give back, possessions are or should say the excess, is something I dont live for.
My first cd was done with money I received from my divorce settlement in '05.
I am here for my fans, touring if you did not know, if the artist is not with a major label, is the artist burden, it is not feasible for me, rather it would be foolish of me to waste my money on "glamour"...making myself out to be something that doesnt work presently,and is not what Will is about.
My second cd will be entitled " Bad Manners"...and I suggest if you like my first cd " Be Like You", most certainly you willenjoy my next disc. You the fan are my record company of sorts, you can also check out www.myspace.com/willweckel , listen to other tunes on home made videos I made in my bedroom..."The Bedroom Concert Series" as I sleepily entitle them. It is a pun! You can here full length tunes...six to be exact from "Be Like You " there free...your choice,
.....you dont have to listen to my music if you dont care to, but helping someone, however grand or minuscule is a noble thing. I as an artist celebrate you the listener, fan , without you, we the artists are nothing. My sincerity to you all, Cheers, Will Weckel
