Feed the Band
Our interview with
As a young man growing up, I would say I was put together pretty well. I remember when I was very young, I would love to carry one of my dad’s old briefcases with a handful of business cards. My mother would scratch out my dad’s name and write mine over the top. Even as I entered high school, business casual was my standard dress code. I always had a desire to put my best foot forward on certain things. It truly is ingrained in me. So when I see someone with those same characteristics I take notice. This is what happened when I met our next artist on Feed the Band around 6 months ago.
Will Muse caught my attention on the release of his first single “I Can Change”. For someone who was fairly new to the music scene the song was extremely polished. I could easily see the song filling up a stadium with it’s huge sound. So I decided one day to reach out to the man that definitely was swinging for the fence with such a song. Will was eager to talk about his music, so we started talking through social media. A few days into conversation, thinking I had been talking to a man in his 20’s, Will told me he was 16. I was in shock. Will Muse was so put together and carried such a huge sound that I never put together I was talking to someone less than half my age.
When we finally did our formal interview for Feed the Band, his age was stuck in my head. I secretly started playing a game to see if I could find a crack in what felt like a 40 year old man trapped in a body of a 16 year old. Will Muse’s youthfulness is not displayed in immaturity, but wonder. He dreams about music and life. The thought of failure and setbacks are rarely on his mind. They would not be for anyone in is position. He made a big play with “I Can change” only to follow it up with his latest single “Spend”. These great songs have resulted in him being teamed him up with great songwriters, PCG Universal and Radio Disney. Even after all the interviews I have done, I only see one direction for Will Muse and that’s up.

You are a proven songwriter. What advice would you give future writers?
I would tell future writers to write about something that they’re passionate about. It is very important to try and make a positive impact through music.
Who are your top 3 influences and how did they shape you as an artist?
Guns N’ Roses, Elton John, and Prince. Their music has really stood the test of time. It is all so relevant and so unique.
If we interviewed your best friend in high school, what would they say about you?
They would (hopefully) say that I am a kind individual who enjoys helping people and making a positive difference in people’s lives. They would also probably say that I am very devoted to my music.
What is your biggest fear?
My biggest fear is not being able to sing.
We are always developing recipes here at Southern Fellow. When writing music what recipe do you use?
When writing music I usually compose a melody and chord progression first. Then I will write lyrics based on the melody and chord progression.
If Crayola added you as a new color, what color would you be?
I would be Blue!

What is your first fond memory of food?
I can remember being very young sitting in my high chair eating a grilled cheese, listening to all kinds of cool music, such as Guns N’ Roses.
If Southern Fellow could develop a recipe for you, what would it be?
I would like a recipe for some good BBQ brisket. Something with a little bit of spice to it.
If you wrote a song about food, what would it be about?
If I wrote a song about food it would be going to my favorite restaurant and all of the memories I have there. It is a Mexican restaurant called El Charro in Somerset, Kentucky.
What does the new year look like for you?
For me this year is filled with many performances and wonderful opportunities. I flew to LA to meet with Radio Disney. I am opening for Ronnie Milsap on June 15th. There also will be a couple video shoots this year!
What advice would you have for someone your age who wanted to pursue music?
I would tell someone to pursue their passion and to never give up. I would also encourage them to spread positivity.

Tell us about your new single “Spend”.
It is a fun, upbeat and happy song about the person that you would want to spend the rest of your life with.
You are walking down the street and you come across a $100 winning scratch off. What do you spend it on?
I would donate a portion of it to a charitable organization, I would spend some of it probably on music equipment, and then I would save the rest.
Is there anything else you want your fans at Southern Fellow to know?
I would like to tell everyone to find something that they’re truly passionate about and to make a positive impact with it!
