Brighton date for Will Joseph Cook

Will Joseph Cook plays Brighton, Concorde on June 6 ahead of a new single.


Spokesman James Heward said: “The fiercely talented Will Joseph Cook has just unveiled ‘Take Me Dancing’, another hugely addictive slice of indie pop, further proving why the Kent youngster is such an exciting prospect for 2016.

In a little over a year, Will has released two EPs to widespread acclaim, and has amassed well over 8 million streams worldwide. His last single ‘Girls Like Me’ featured a brilliantly tongue-in-cheek video, written and created by the man himself, seeing Will going speed-dating with various versions of himself, dressed in drag. The track was immediately added to the In New Music We Trust playlist on Radio 1, amassing well over 20 plays, with support from the likes of Annie Mac, Clara Amfo and Greg James.

“This year so far has already seen Will play a sold-out show at the Barfly, as well as playing SXSW for the first time, plus The Great Escape in Brighton. He will be supporting Walking On Cars on their UK tour in June, as well as playing a host of festivals through the summer - full dates below.

“Will’s ear for a massive hook and intense melody is evident across his debut EP release ‘You Jump I Run’ and his second effort ‘Proof Enough’, released in March and August 2015 respectively. Tracks from these releases gained Will the #1 spot on Hype Machine (Message and Daisy Chains), the #2 spot on the Global Spotify Viral Chart and spot plays across Radio 1, 6Music and Radio X, as well as him being chosen as a Spotify Spotlight On 2016 Artist.”
