WilHelmus.! ([bassist at large]) is a versatile electric bass player who has played professionally/toured in multiple genres including rock, funk, progressive rock, metal, jazz, classical, and musical theater. Will’s diverse musical background and interests helps him bring insightful playing to collaborators with a focus on composition and audience.
His voracious appetite for learning and studying has positioned him to be an in-demand teacher of not only bass, but of guitar, harmony, ear training, and theory. Will has had several students go on to attend the Berklee College of Music and William Paterson University to further pursue their music careers.
Will is currently playing and writing in Sci-Fi Prog Metal band Valence, the Jazz-Fusion inspired project Surreal Measures, as well as being consistently hired to play with such acts as Max Feinstein, Libricide, and 80s Power-Metal Legends Liege Lord.
