Has been a big fan of Wil Seabrook since he got signed to Madonna's former label Maverick. Unfortunately, the album was not released, but it got me interested and since then follow him with great delight. He has managed to charm me over and over with his warm and sunny pop / rock. Sometimes a little groovier and sometimes a little more emotional, but always with a great sense of heart and soul. The results have always been impressive and this Ep under the name Empire Of One is no exception. Together with Luke Thomas on guitar, Darwin Johnson on Bassand Alexander E. Gonzalez on drums, Wil has created a handful of really strong songs with a little bigger sound than before. Imagine a mixture of Dishwalla, U2, Graham Colton, and we are pretty close. A little more arena orientated than before, but of course with a warm wind of LA pop that makes him so special. Favorites are the sweet "Better Than" along with the cool "Roam", but you will find your own favorites for sure. A must have!
Ryan Martin from Hope Republic ( ex Atlantic bands Frankie Machine & The Flying Tigers ) came to the guitar as a pre-teen only because his mother dissuaded him from his first choice for an instrument, the saxophone.
