WILL BOWES, “Eleven”
“Eleven” is the most engaging song that I heard at Will Bowes’ debut performance as a solo artist this summer. It’s a jazz-flavoured, funk-filled slice of fun that will keep your toes tapping and hands clapping along. Will’s vocals get a real workout as he exercises his falsetto in Prince-ly ways. The bouncing beat is familiar enough, and “Eleven” is enhanced big time by the appearance of some well placed saxophone work. Already known as a singer with the Toronto pop/R&B/jazz collective Gold Complex, “Eleven” is an infectious must-add for your Fall playlists that would sound terrific on the radio, and a big taste of what’s to come when Will Bowes releases his first album in the near future.
