WillMoffettWill Moffett is an emerging singer and songwriter from Chicago whose musical style is straight to the point indie rock.

Music is an emotional outlet for Moffet whose lyrics are obviously genuinely straight from the heart and a way to release all the stress of life, and Moffett is a fairly diverse songwriter with tunes that range from punk and rock to blues and ballads. His single, “I Want My Money Back”, is raw but catchy, with a severe punk edge, while his single “Being Ignored” has a cool rock and hard rock feel that’s full and rich and smooth.   You can listen to Will’s music, download “I Want My Money Back” and follow him at the links below, so check it out today!

“For a local bill, talent buying and barrel-scraping are often comparable. Three or four bands are assembled—or overstuffed—into a line-up. The show takes place on nights deemed graveyard slots for live music. Genres are half-considered, but it’s more about putting barely-heard-of bands together and suffering through the sets. Most venues have production fees and percentage splits. The net profit is often divided evenly between bands. One group could bring twelve people; another, seventy. Still, each band gets an equal cut. These methods are almost bearable when you are eager to play out—when you are young and raucous and full of hair. But it’s a bit problematic for a thirty-something full-time solo artist hiring full-time session musicians.”
