Steven Ray Will

Americana/Singer-Songwriter from Austin, Texas

Having toured the U.S. and abroad nonstop for years as a sideman, Steven shifted his focus to writing and performing his own original songs in and around his adopted hometown of Austin. Leading to weekly residencies, the formation of his own band and the recording of his debut album as a leader, "The Leaver”. Which landed him national exposure, critical acclaim, an official SXSW showcase and a European distribution deal with Blue Rose.

His follow-up is currently being recorded in Austin, Texas, at the Six String Ranch. Co-produced by Steven Ray Will and Matthew Smith for an early summer 2024 release, with national distribution by EarHeartz/SoSouth Records.

For fans of Jason Isbell, Butch Walker, Chris Stapleton, Chris Whitley, independent singer-songwriters and Americana music.

... if The Leaver is any indication, Steven Ray Will has a promising future ahead of him. There's an American Aquarium/Lucero feel to his sound that translates well across these tracks. This one is a keeper!”

The Leaver may be Steven's debut, but he is indeed no amateur... his cover of Blaze Foley’s Clay Pigeons haunts for all the right reasons...”

Great record, damn good songs. We look forward to the day we can see him play in London... well done!”
