Will is a fingerstyle guitarist and songwriter. His music is notable for his dexterous guitar playing, his soft tenor voice, and his lyrics, which range from the imagistic to the political. His sixth album was 2017’s  Rosewood Almanac , released on the London record label Bella Union, which attracted favorable notices from Pitchfork, The Guardian, MOJO and others, meriting comparisons to Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, and Richard Thompson. He is currently recording his as-yet untitled seventh album.

“Stratton has gotten more discreet with his approach. Where he could be something of a gunslinger in the past, not a single note sounds out of place here, and all of the instruments mesh together into a greater whole of breathtaking scale.” - Pitchfork


Sprouse is Jess Green, Trevor Wilson, and Ethan Woods. Together, they make psychedelic living room carnival music. 

Sprouse   started in March of 2018 when Ethan moved to Asheville. Each of its members, however, are seasoned artists in their own respect. Jess runs A Little Weather Weaving Studios, and is one of the founders of The Cabbage School in Leicester, NC. Trevor is the founder of the New York-based band Anawan, with whom he released the albums  All Material  and  Anawan through New Amsterdam Records. He also was the recording engineer and producer of Mountain Man’s  Sun Dog  EP. Ethan founded the New York-based band Rokenri, and has been featured as a guest vocalist on records by Ocean Music and Adrian Knight. In May of 2015, he released Rokenri’s debut album,  Donkey Donkey . His music has been featured in a number of modern dance pieces, most notably in The Light Brigade’s  OVER BEYOND ACROSS THROUGH , commissioned by the Anchorage Museum in Anchorage, AK in 2013. Before Asheville and New York, Ethan worked as composer Dan Deacon’s personal assistant in Baltimore, MD.
