Background
Will T Massey was a name bandied about during my earlier years discovering new music. He came from a time when rock n roll and country were beginning to fuse. Though Will became a minor celebrity during the time of his major label self titled CD back in 1991, the Austin Texas native had released a couple of albums before then. He had been described as Texas's very own Bruce Springsteen, but by the time MCA landed him on the big stage, Will T Massey's music was being compared to some in Nashville, even in L.A, where bright-eyed recent arrival from Australia Troy Newman was turning heads with his 1991 debut 'Gypsy Moon'. Aged 21 at the time, Massey garnered assistance from keyboardist/pianist Roy Bittan, better known as Bruce Springsteen's right hand man, along with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and everyone's favourite drummer Kenny Aranoff (refer John Mellancamp, Bob Seger, John Fogerty etc). However, it's his Texas roots that will always see comparisons to the likes of Steve Earle and the aforementioned John Mellancamp - a singer/songwriter snared in the Texan spiderweb of Americana/folk/country/rock. The 1991 self titled album enabled Will T to put a bigger and more lush production job onto his songs, whether that was true to form is a moot point, considering his earlier material on albums such as 1989's 'Slow Study' or 1988's 'Kickin' Up Dust' were more organic and down to earth.

Celebrity was not a good fit for Will, as he would spend the next thirteen years running away from everyone and society in general. In 2005, he found that he had been suffering from schizophrenia. Now that he had a diagnosis and a potential cure, he was in a position to manage the condition. Also, it enabled him to return to music, where has released a handful of newer albums including his latest: 2008's 'Wayward Lady'.
