He was impressed with his vocal and guitar chops which exhibited honed skills far beyond his age. His stellar songwriting skills are especially exhibited in a song Will wrote when he was just 14 called: Waiting on Yesterday.  Since that time, Corky has invited Will to join him on stage at both the 2015 and 2016 world-renown Chicago Blues Festival stages.  The now 19 year old Tilson has also caught fire and the attention of Chicago and legends like Buddy Guy.  We feel his meteoric ascent definitely isn’t waiting on anything.
