Winds Will Change is the second EP release from William Beckett, previously known for being the vocalist of now disbanded The Academy Is…. Having fallen in love with Beckett’s first EP (Walk the Talk), I was obviously very excited to have a listen to this latest release and here’s what I thought about it…
Lead single Great Night is a catchy little number telling us the story of an evening which wasn’t as successful as hopefully planned. “I’ve had a great night, But this wasn’t it”. Packed with short sharp bouncy guitar chords and drum beats, it’s a song I could see myself singing late at night attempting to cheer myself up after a night not going to plan! It’s always a good sign when the first track on the release sticks in your head; however it was soon over taken by next track Warriors.

Last Saturday (May 12th), William Beckett played a show with Cara Salimando at the Mod Club in Toronto, Ontario, which I had the pleasure of attending and shooting! At seven ‘o clock, the doors opened to a crowd of about fifty people, which was much less than what I had expected, but this made the show even better because it was so intimate.
Cara Salimando played for about forty-five minutes, capturing the attention of everyone in the venue. Cara’s voice is beautiful, and without a doubt, she has gained a lot of new fans from Toronto. The crowd loved Cara and her heartfelt songs, along with her quirky awkwardness. Following Cara’s set, the stage crew brought out some interesting props: a bedside lamp, some candles and of course, William’s Macbook, which we soon found out held some interesting tracks.
