Will Wildfire

The Charlotte, North Carolina self-taught producer, musician and singer-songwriter, known as Will Wildfire, exemplifies the new age of Alternative R&B with his distinguished guitar riffs and bad boy charm. NOISEY proclaimed him as “North Carolina’s (and possibly one of the world’s), next great soul-rock bad boy.”

Born Will Hoggard, developed a liking towards R&B and Rock n Roll legends at a young age. There he began discovering who he wanted to be as an artist and what he could convey to the world. In high school he tapped into his talent, joined a band and started performing at local venues.

With influences from Jimi Hendrix, Kanye West and Aaliyah he garnered a big following on social media during his college years at UNC — Chapel Hill. Through his grassroots success he began receiving an ample amount of attention that opened opportunities to perform at American Idol Alum, Anoop Desai on his Xbox campus tour and has since hit the ground running. At 24 years-old, he exceeds the indie expectations as you can hear him on the airwaves of Raleigh K97.5, performed alongside major acts Tory Lanez and B.O.B. watch for him in the coming months with new music and additional tour dates.
