This is an archive of the band profile for William Stead.
My name is William Stead and I am 20 years old. I am a singer songwriter based in the Bradford in the heart of Yorkshire. I specialize in folk music with my main instruments being vocals, acoustic guitar and harmonica. I study Music Technology and Popular Music at the University of Huddersfield. I have been singing for many years and have been in and out of many different bands around my local area. I have been writing folk influenced songs for around two years now and this is my first step into the music industry as a solo artist. I take influence from many acoustic/folk artists such as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Bon Iver, Ben Howard and James Vincent McMorrow.
I have played many gigs around the West Yorkshire area gathering a strong fan base. I have recently taken a time out from performing to record my debut EP that was released on the 17/9/12. It has been released as a free download or donation on http://williamstead.bandcamp.com/.
