Will Janssen - United Arab Emirates

Gear: Nord Stage 2

Associated acts: The Boxtones, Lykeum, Psychotic Gardening, Julie Biggs

Will was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada – kicking off his music career at a young age. His early work involved Evangelical church organ playing, and directing the church choir. Will was also involved with a number of bands and recorded several albums with the likes of Lykeum, Psychotic Gardening and Julie Biggs. These bands toured all over Canada, and shot music videos to accompany their albums, which were highly acclaimed in the metal scene.

After moving to the Middle East and joining The Boxtones, the band won the Rolling Stone Magazine’s Street to Stage competition in 2013 and placed in the top 40 out of 10,000+ entrants in last year’s global battle of the bands competition entitled “Hard Rock Rising”.

“Nord Stage 2 plays like a dream as it's easy to use for live performances, features the best and richest piano sounds, authentic organ settings which can be manipulated at my finger tips, an advanced synth library which allows me to upload my own samples, and the feel of the weighted keys are far superior to any other I’ve played before”
