Willy Tea Signs Record Deal with Blackwing Music

The news is true fans. Willy Tea is in the studio making a new solo record under the Blackwing Music imprint. Many of you may know Blackwing for the awesome pencils they make and for all of the famous musicians and writers who swear by them. They’ve always done a lot to support music and songwriting so this expansion into the music industry is more of a natural than some may think.

Michale Witcher is producing the album and overseeing this week’s sessions at pH Balanced Studio in Nashville with Grammy winning engineer Phil Harris. Michael has assembled an incredible group of world class session musicians to accompany Will on the album which features all original material.

You can get updates from the sessions by following @Blackwing on instagram. Willy will try and post a few updates to his Facebook page as well but most of his time will be focused on picking and singing his ass off.
