As a full-time musician who is often on the road and away from family, the idea for In the Real World was bred out of the yearning to know what it’s like to have a 9–5 job, be home at nights and to have a taste of what it’s like in the perceived “Real World”.
Surviving a decade as a full-time country artist, providing for his family by playing more than 250 gigs each year, is an achievement that Brisbane-based country artist Will Day is proud of.
In 2017 Will toured New Zealand for 10 days and was a finalist in three categories for the current Independent Country Music Association awards for which he won the fan voted “Most Popular EP”. 2017 also saw Will win the Male Rising Star awards at the Southern Stars Australian Independent Country Music awards in Mildura, Victoria. Will has been described by peers in the country music industry as one of the hardest working artists. 2018 alone saw him travel some 50,000 kilometres around New Sotuh Wales, Austraian Capital Territory, and North and Central Queensland.
Will Day’s success has been put down to his vibrant energetic stage presence; he gives it his all every time he hits the stage. He is never seen not covered in sweat and exhausted after each performance. With 2019 looking busier than ever, Will is excited to launch his next single In the Real World co-written with Matt Scullion.
