Interview with… Will Joseph Cook


When did you first start making music?

I wrote my first song when I was 13.

What was your first gig?
Quite funny, it was Pendulum at the Brighton Centre. I think I was 11 at the time so it blew my mind.

What is your favourite song to play live?
Girls Like Me is a definite favourite, feels so good hear everyone sing.

Who is your biggest influence?
Probably Mark Everett from Eels, he’s a writer that has been releasing music throughout my life and was always around when I was growing up.

What is your favourite album of all time?
Very hard question but MGMT’s Oracular Spectacular would be an obvious pick for me.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?
Tyler the Creator

Have you ever met someone that’s made you starstruck?
When I first met Darwin Deez after a concert.

What has been your favourite song this year?
Folk Rock Song 1 by Okudaxij

What should people expect at one of your gigs?
It’s always an exciting atmosphere, rooms full of people singing and moving to all the tunes.

If you could choose anything to be on your rider, what would it be?
Mario Kart set up.
