Vancouver Island based artist WiL released his fifth studio album, ‘El Paseo’, on September 30th. The album was made possible by the generosity of his dedicated fans and their crowd funding efforts that met and surpassed his goal in a matter of days. WiL is also touring western Canada in support of the new album until October 25th.

‘El Paseo’ is highly impressive. With both slow and faster songs, the album is a treat to listen to from start to finish. “Hold Me On”, “There Is”, “Make Make”, and “Look Around” are my personal favourites from the album. “Look Around” in particular is a bit faster than the rest of the songs and has a beat that fans are sure to love.

Overall this album is fantastic. The catchy lyrics are sure to be stuck in your head and have you wanting more.

Rating: 4.5/5

WiL on social media:

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
