Will and The Wilderness

Mar 18, 2022

11:00pm – 11:40pm CT

Victorian Room at The Driskill

A long time member of the much loved South Austin Jug Band as well as a sideman to such Texas headliners as Bob Schneider, Bruce Robison, Kelly Willis, and Jason Boland & the Stragglers Will Dupuy brings his best songs and a stellar backup band to a debut overflowing with the sound of traditional Texas country with his own personal little twist. With producer Brian Beken (Robert Earl Keen, South Austin Jug Band, Milkdrive) by his side, Dupuy lays down nine originals, a co-write with Shawn Nelson (“Devils River”) and Neil Tramell’s “Valentine Texas.” HE and his band Will and The Wilderness reflects their lifelong travels throughout Texas as well as making for a perfect new soundtrack to anyone’s quarantine. The whole project took all of seven days at the beginning of 2020, with Dupuy being lucky enough to invite friends, some of Austin’s best players, to join in, including Noah Jeffries, Joe Faulhaber, Trevor Nealon, Geoff Queen, Trevor Smith, Michael Lefkowitz and Josh and Max Baca.
