An acclaimed musician with a reputation for writing from the heart, Bobby Wills (MDM Recordings Inc./Universal Music Canada) is best known for two things; his signature cowboy hat and a diverse sound, combining classic country with a modern twist. On the stage, Wills shines, and with a twinkle in his eye says his favourite moment is “the rush of the first count. Nothing in the world is as exhilarating as the first downbeat of a show.” The 9-time CCMA nominee recently released his second single in 2019, “It Matters to Her”, leading up to the release of the new Long Shot Bar and Grill EP, dropping October 25. Consistently releasing new material, Wills dropped the deluxe edition of his 5th studio album In Comes The Night in February 2018, featuring singles “Get While The Gettin’s Good”, “In Comes The Night”, and “Out Of Your Mind”. In Comes The Night followed up Wills’ 2016 multi-nominated EP Tougher Than Love, which featured three top 10 hits. He also has three previous releases, Crazy Enough (2014), If It Was That Easy (2012), and Man with No Past (2010). Committed to helping others wherever possible, Wills performed during the 2014 Golden Globe Awards weekend in Los Angeles as part of the Oh Canada Cocktail Party to benefit the Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. He also donated all proceeds for two years from worldwide iTunes downloads of his hit single “Show Some Respect”; with 50% donated to the Canadian Museum of Human Rights and 50% donated to the Shoah Foundation.

A FACSCINATING JOURNEY TO A MUSICAL FUTURE: Adopted as a baby to a family in Calgary Alberta, Bobby Wills didn’t know what an impact his DNA would have on his life path. "My (adopted) dad was a huge country music fan," he says, "but no one ever played music in my family growing up.” Having gotten a taste of the thrill of performing during an open mic while traveling in Australia, upon returning home Bobby connected with his biological family and could not have anticipated the artistic genealogy he was a part of, including five siblings and a musical streak a mile wide running throughout the family. Staying up all night listening to records upon meeting his biological father, it was then that Bobby realized ‘This is in my blood. This isn't just a crazy dream I had; this is part of who I am.' Many moons later, Wills is a shining star in the Country music scene, balancing his two loves, family and music.
