After spending five years touring and recording two albums as the lead singer and songwriter of the Austin, TX band, Brothers And Sisters, Will Courtney decided to pack up and move back to Los Angeles...and then to Nashville...and then to a log cabin on some land in Dripping Springs, TX. Now, after two years of being based in Santa Fe, NM, where he produced albums for other artists and toured the US and Europe as a solo artist, he’s back in Austin with a new band and a new album, Crazy Love, on Super Secret Records.
When Will is not making music, he spends much of his time collecting 19th Century photographs and researching the history of the American West. He recently worked on a new documentary series for the Discovery Channel about famous western outlaws called Gunslingers. Will is a featured historian on Gunslingers: Billy The Kid.
