William Poyer
is a singer/ songwriter with a genuine attention to the craft. William left his native UK in 2013 on a journey of discovery, looking to hone a sound that was unique to him. Three years of living in Mexico helped him find the the sound he was searching for and during this period he developed the stunning collection of songs that would go on to become his debut album. A successful kick-starter campaign helped William to fund the journey home to his native Wales to work with lifelong friend and producer Gethin Woolcock. The influence of William's time in Mexico is clearly heard in his songs, debut album 'Born Lucky' conjures up an atmosphere for the listener that is part-intimate, part-escapist & all-engrossing. William's songs have been described as a blend of real life storytelling with an honest and enthralling sensibility. Driving rhythms and melodic hooks, the sound of Americana from a boy from Wales via Mexico.
Grounded by real life experiences and melodic truths William describes his songs as “an opportunity to tell stories from the perspectives that interest me”.
QUOTES
Sofar Sounds Mexico
"William was the only performer on the bill playing without a full band, yet due to the distinct use of his voice and guitar you wouldn’t have noticed. Watching the veins in his neck swell as he sung his opening line, asking to be taken to Memphis, his music conveyed great emotion through its storytelling. The guitar chords, which often resemble a ballad of the old American West, transported us to Poyers’ world, so much so that the audience wouldn't allow him to say goodbye without asking for one last piece."
Blog: Reality is over
"I went down to Lights of Soho for my first gig of 2016 with John Flannery and Zozo of Shoreditch Radio's Art Speak programme, who had kindly invited me along to the event. Two of the performers I had heard of, Our man in the field and Gabrielle Moreno, and two I hadn't come across, William Poyer and Kit Day. It was the kind of night that encapsulates the beauty, and makes you so very appreciative, of the London music scene. Pure talent, passion and genuity created an extremely warm atmosphere throughout the evening.
First up was singer songwriter, William Poyer. The songs, the voice, the guitar playing were all an example of an extremely accomplished musician. Minimalism that showed a confidence in creating an authentic country blues atmosphere, with great skill evident throughout that complimented the natural talent. A great start to the night."
South West Fest
"Fresh back from a long tour of Mexico, William Poyer writes honest and enthralling Americana. His debut album due to be released in April 2016. Go get it now and see him play, you won’t be disappointed. “
