#409: Introducing...Will Mussett

With singer-songwriters seemingly ten-a-penny these days, its often difficult to wade through the mediocrity in order to find something that truly stands out; wearing your heart on your sleeve is all well and good, but if said sleeve is beige, bland, and like so many of the genre’s artists, living in the past, then your music is going to follow suit. Fortunately for the 21 year old, Brighton-based Will Mussett, he manages to avoid the fate of many of his contemporaries, and even influences, by taking the genre’s more traditional aesthetics and softly coaxing them in to the present.
