We had the opportunity to interview R&B artist I-Will for the magazine, but first, let us tell you a little about just who he is! “i-WILL” is an R&B artist from a small town call La Marque, Texas which is 25 miles of Houston, Texas.
At a young age while singing in the church he discovered his natural ability. He released his first single ‘My Baby Mama’ in 2000 and has built for himself continuously since then. Empowered and influenced by those in the music industry before him like Stevie Wonder, Sam Cook, Al Green, The Temptations, Jodeci, and more. He’s applied their styles and created his own.
He’s worked with some of Houston’s finest, Lil’ O, Big Pokey, J-Dawy, Jhiame, and Jab. He’s working towards placing himself in a power position in the music industry so that his music could be heard by the masses.
His current single ‘ I Think I Found The One’ is being promoted worldwide while he works on his freshman album entitled ‘Truth’. i-Will plans to show the industry that his unique style will bring diversity to a time in music that needs it the most.
He’s performed several times, but currently, his favorite performance of his own was at the House of Blues in Houston Texas. “It was Epic, the crowd was singing along, everyone was vibing well it was a great evening.”
He knows that hard work and sacrifice are the keys to success. “Balancing my musical obligations along with family obligations can be difficult, but one-day ‘I-will…’ be able to take care of my family while living out my dreams.
His dad recently passed, but Will has attributed his father to be his biggest hero. “ He taught me the definition of hard work and sacrifice. He helped mold me the man I am today.” Thankfully his sister has stepped into being one of his biggest supporters musically “ When I’m excited about a project she’s the first person I call.We’ve been praying for this for so long despite the rough days it will be worth it.”
He feels soul and substance are missing in the music industry currently, but understand that music is and will always change based on the audience. In the future, he’d like to collaborate with artist like Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Pharrell, and Kendrick Lamar.
When he’s not working on his music he’s either at the mall or you’ll find him chowing down on some Lemon Pepper Wings while washing it down with some nice cold water watching Lifetime.
