Will Dudley started writing poems and songs when he was about 15. He didn't know for a long time if he was a guitar player who sang and wrote, a poet who wrote songs and played guitar, or a songwriter who had to learn guitar and sing in order to have them heard. Now after over 40 years commiserating and pondering, he's concluded that he's a singer who plays rather well and writes in a way that people enjoy. He lives in southern Colorado and sings at Guest Ranches, resorts, hotels, bars, halls and honky tonks either unaccompanied or with a band, depending on where you catch him. More recently he's been in Seattle, but he's also been known to pop up in Chicago, Bar Harbor, Nashville, Phoenix or Austin from time to time.
His songs have been recorded by pop, rock and folk singers in both Canada and the U.S.
If you ask him he'll tell you he's a troubadour, and his latest release on itunes is called Heartsong, a collection of the ridiculous (Bad Dog) the topical (Cottonwood Canyon) and the sublime (Gypsy Rose, Shadow and Shade).
