Will has released three records already since last March. "The Cornfields" saw a triumphant return to his stunning solo guitar compositions. "Irrelephant" evoked the likes of Pelt with its sprawling harmonium and fiddle drones. And on "Who's Been Giving You Corn?", he entered into conversation for the first time with flat-picker Cameron Knowler in a collection of fresh takes on old-time staples. Csorba and Knowler have since gone on to form The Fossil Lickers along with fiddler James Trimble and more recently percussionist and guitar player Sage Lyford. With another record on the way, the group will bring their ever-expanding repertoire of traditional and original tunes, with maybe a couple solo pieces from Csorba.
