Will Lawton & Weasel Howlett started collaborating in 2015. They have a hypnotic and heady sound which revolves around Will’s piano-based songs being brought alive by the stripped back energy of Weasel’s drumming.
In January 2018 the pair released their self-financed debut album ‘Fossils of the Mind’ on double vinyl and CD following a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. The album was recorded at Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England. The band sold out The Pound Arts Centre in Corsham, Wiltshire for their album release show.
Will is a prolific singer/song-writer who has documented his life through his music with various bands and an enviable discography. Significant song writing influences include Ray LaMontagne, Eddie Vedder, Nick Drake and Ben Harper. The pair cite music influences ranging from grunge to death metal to progressive rock and jazz including bands such as Tool, Go Go Penguin and Portico Quartet.
Fossils of the Mind is the culmination of Will's song-writing experience and Weasel's rhythmic influence and marks the maturation of a compelling and talented duo who bring inspiration from opposing genres of music to create something entirely their own.
Highlights in summer 2018 include live festival performances at Boondocks (Wiltshire) and Purbeck (Dorset). They are currently writing and touring as a trio with Buddy Fonzarello on bass guitar.
Will and Weasel are signed to Supermarine Music.
