Will Solomon is a folk artist from Kentucky based in Nashville, TN. His work has taken him to #9 on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart and into the studio with Grammy-winners Casey Wasner and Jacquire King to record his 2021 EP, Misspelled Words. He has toured the country opening for artists including Johnnyswim, Holly Williams, and Thad Cockrell. Will creates an emotive sound inspired by the folk songs of his hand-me-down records, pop hooks of his 80s childhood and colorful chords from collegiate jazz studies in Appalachia.

Simon is also member of "Sean Watkins & the Bee Eaters" and partner in his hammer dulcimer/banjo duo, "Simon Chrisman & Wes Corbett". Jenika Smith is also a member of folk band King Roy Wing. The band recently released their debut EP "Will Solomon & Friends - The La Baguette Sessions" in April of 2023.
