FILM & T.V. COMPOSER
"Will Woodland has assisted me as a composer & orchestrator for a few years on various projects - one being the annual christmas concert 'Concerto de Natal', which featured a 60-piece orchestra and was held at the historic Teatro Amazonas Opera House in Manaus, Brazil. His musicianship and technical skills as a composer are mirrored in his great talent as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. He's a young guy with a great future in this business."
- Joseph Alfuso, Composer & Orchestrator at Walt Disney Company
"Will studied guitar privately with me for 2 years while getting his Media & Commercial Composition degree at California State University Northridge. Upon reviewing his recent work, I am happy to say that he has developed into a wonderfully accomplished guitarist, singer, and composer, and I am proud to have been a part of his musical development."
- John Pisano, Guitarist with Frank Sinatra, Joe Pass, Michael Bublé, etc.
"Will interned with me for some time here at CBS 60 minutes & 60 minutes sports as a post production audio assistant. His mixing and audio chops are rivaled by his composition and musicianship skills. Outstanding guitar player and vocalist as well. Simply put, Will is the real deal."
- Roy Halee Jr., Rerecording Mixer at CBS News & The Chris Rock Show
"Will Woodland is that rare combination of songwriter AND score composer. Very few people can do both as fluently. From singing and playing guitar to composing for large scale orchestra, he can do it all."
- Nic tenBroek, Hollywood Composer, Orchestrator, & Producer
Will Woodland is an amazing artist who put on a PHENOMENAL performance for our Easter Brunch event in the Montage Ballroom. His ability to cater his music to multiple generations while personalizing their experience was flawless. We look forward to having Will and his band back again!
- Jonathan Macioce, Director of Banquets at Montage - Laguna Beach
"Will Woodland has been performing here at Salt Creek Grille - Dana Point for several years now. He has built quite a large following, as his music lends a soulful, clean, and professional vibe to all he covers. I am proud to oversee a restaurant that provides a lounge where people not only can dine, but can take in the music William plays. Its a beautiful, added bonus."
- Marcos Costas, General Manager at Salt Creek Grille - Dana Point
"We booked Will Woodland for our Mother's Day Brunch this year to freshen up the sound after 13 years of using the same musical act and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. Will was incredibly professional and very flexible with set times and last minute changes. His style of music really complemented our 5 star experience nicely with his smooth sounds, vast repertoire and appealing voice. We have already booked him again for upcoming events and I would highly recommend him for any venue.
- Tiffany McClintock, Dining Director at Montage Laguna Beach
Will studied orchestration with me at Cal State University, Northridge, and I am happy (yet not surprised) to see and hear the excellent work he has been doing since earning his degree. Will is a natural; equally adept at pop, classic American songbook, rock and singer/songwriter genre, as well as symphonic, and big band orchestration. He works with a calm professional attitude, and whether for a media scoring project, or for a live performance, I’d highly recommend Will Woodland to be a part of any team.
- William V. Malpede, Hollywood Composer, Orchestrator, & Songwriter
"I have been utilizing Will for a couple of years to cover for me on some very prestigious house gigs. Needless to say, it is important to ensure that the level of musical ability and professionalism meets not only my expectations, but also those of my long-standing clients. Will consistently exceeds those expectations. I highly recomend Will Woodland to anybody looking for a talented and professional musician."
- Mike Wallace, Owner & Producer of Firepan Music
"Will Woodland has been an excellent addition to the roster of musicians for my event company. He brings both a professional look and personality to all events. Great singer, great guitarist."
- Jason Foster, CEO of Society Music & Sound
"We have had Will perform at several of our Deloitte consulting parties. Definitely the key to a successful corporate event… Will Woodland is always great to have - truly talented, professional, and generous. Having him play at our events is a wonderful way to create a fun and memorable evening with colleagues and I would highly recommend him."
- Vanessa Serrano, Event Planner at Deloitte
"My husband and I saw Will Woodland perform as a solo act at The Mussel Inn music venue in New Zealand. This guy is great; very talented. His music is melodic and creates a really relaxed ambiance. One of the best musicians we’ve ever seen at the Mussel Inn. There’s no justice in this world if he doesn’t go far."
- Jo O’Reilly, Fan from Mapua, New Zealand
"Will Woodland is an accomplished musician I've worked with who not only plays extremely well, but can adapt on-the-fly as clients give him requests or ask for a change in mood during an event. He plays just as well in a solo or duo as when he's in a full ensemble. Will is easy to get along with, extremely talented, and reliable."
