Live performance by Willy & The Wonkeye, recorded at the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai by TMS Live China on August 29th 2021.
Willy & The Wonkeye is a vocal and guitar duo formed by Scotsman songwriter Chris Blair and Canadian guitarist Kevin Marsh. Much of their music contained themes of redemption and hope, family challenges and modern life struggles. From the countryside of Scotland to the alleys of Shanghai, their music comes from improvisions and spontaneous lyrics. Taking inspiration from artists such as Johnny Cash mixed with more Indie artists, vocalist Chris Blair is a poetic story teller who weaves melodies like a magician. Alongside Blair is guitar wizard Kevin Marsh, and together, they are Willy & the Wonkeye.
Some of their songs reveal an exquisite sensitivity that might touch people’s soul, some poetries sculpted into an array of distinct personal facts.
Willy & the Wonkeye was formed in 2017 in Shanghai. The pair were introduced through a mutual musician, and not long after their initial meeting, the two sat down in a studio to make some music. Immediately without rehearsal, discussion, or any preconceived ideas, they created four outstanding songs. This is the magic of Willy & the Wonkeye! They do not sit down and work on lyrics or chord progressions. They simply create their songs in real-time.
