About Wil Kinky

Content

Wil Kinky sound is soulful and bluesy with an alternative edge. He calls his style: South Paw Soul - due to his unusual left-handed guitar approach. He sounds like a blend between John Mayer and Ray Lamontagne. In his early twenties, Wil has been playing music since he was thirteen. Born and raised outside Portland on a blueberry farm, hard work has always been a part of his life. Wil Kinky brings the same work ethic to his music, with a love and a passion that you can feel.
Wil performs solo as well as with his band the Wil Kinky Trio and guests with other acts like Jordan Harris, Keegan Smith, Krista Herring and Tony Smiley. Wil is also an in-demand guitar instructor - teaching guitar and piano in the Portland Metro area.

About Tony Smiley

Wil Kinky on Tony Smiley:
The first time I met Tony was when I showed up to play with him at an open jam! That jam turned into a weekly gig at Rock Bottom Brewery which we played for over a year. My phrase for Tony is: "Infectious groove." He is an extremely entertaining performer - he plays the kind of music you have to move to - very rhythmic. Tony was a drummer before he became a musician/looper and is known as "The Loop Ninja." Tony doesn't need anyone to play with him because he can sound like a whole band all by himself! Most likely Tony will join me on my sets - we have already plotted some special tricks for the audience.
