Brighton’s Will Mussett is set to release his debut album ‘November Storm’ on Fri 31 Jan 2015. This 21 year-old artist, with his unique song writing, vocal and guitar playing talents, aligns with the great tradition of Jeff Buckley and Paolo Nutini. His music and songs are intensely personal, so this album references a young man’s discovery of love and loss.
‘November Storm’ is inspired by the nature of changing cycles of relationships and the reflection of our own thoughts and feelings. Will Mussett set about writing this album at the age of 15, capturing key moments of his journey right up to the day in November when he began recording. Boasting a generous 12 tracks, each song on the new album works brilliantly on its own, however a magical unison of raw expressions and emotional depth sew a thread of cohesion throughout.
A number of tracks on the album were collaboratively written with some industry legends. Starting with the emotive ‘40,000 Feet’, co-written with Jim Irvin who’s worked with the likes of Lana del Ray and Chloe Howl to the uplifting ‘In Loving Memory’ penned with John Fortis who worked with Paolo Nutini and Laura Marling.
The album was recorded independently and produced by another amazing young Brightonian, Alex Wells. ‘November Storm’ was financed by his management and his many supporters through a crowd funding campaign he ran last year. The launch of the debut album November Storm will be a home-town affair at his favourite live venue, Brighton’s Green Door Store, in front of a large audience of his family, friends, fans and industry. Mussett is already featuring in a number of Ones To Watch lists, so 2015 should see his musical career catapult upward..
