Willa is putting the bow on a new alternative record and we got the first single the other day. The Vancouver based artist worked with Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother)  on album. Here’s the first single, “Dreamers.”


I had a chance to see Willa back in 2014. It was a mesmerizing show and I’m glad that her project is moving forward. It looks like 2016 will be her year.

“I wanna be razor sharp. I wanna be crystal clear.”

P’aris taps Willa to lend some vocals to the pop jam “Focus.”

P’aris in the email about the song.

Focus’ is a song about two people experiencing the loss of a pregnancy. There’s a very particular type of gentle empathy that both partners must offer each other when going through a miscarriage. It’s a strange type of loss, especially from a pragmatic standpoint – you haven’t so much lost something as you have lost the idea of something. So in a way you’re mourning the loss of control over your own future, control over your body, your biology. And you’re also faced with the fact that you have failed at the one thing humans exist on earth to do. ‘Focus’ is about making sure the relationship doesn’t suffer while you’re each processing things in your own way.

And the last time we talked about Willa on MAS.

The Rifflandia after party at Distrikt Nightclub featured an alterna-pop performer from Vancouver named Willa. She was captivating on stage. Huge sound, perfect voice.

Since that show…I’ve been seeing her name pop up more and more on my social media feeds as folks-in-know start to discover her sounds.

Willa is working with Ryan Guldemond, Nettwerk, The Agency Group…so basically all the heavyweights in the Canadian-Content Industry.

Willa is still working on that debut album and finding a US record label….while she’s on that, a song was posted!
