William Smith’s debut album comprises a selection of 6 original compositions which he wrote over a period of 4 years during his stay in the Netherlands whilst studying for his Bachelor degree in Jazz Drums between 2017 and 2021.
The album features 3 other musicians and great friends who he met during his stay in the Netherlands: Prashant Samlal on electric guitar, and Murat Ali Cengiz on piano and Jonathan Ho Chin Kiat on double-bass. Prominent Maltese bass player Oliver Degabriele will be replacing Jonathan for the launch concert. This concert will also serve as William’s farewell concert before he leaves for the USA where, next September, he will commence studies for a Masters in
Jazz Drum Set after successfully auditioning at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music earlier this year.
