Patch William are a band we played back on the very first edition of Introducing: Fresh On The Net in October 2007 when most of the band were still fresh out of school and one of them was still there. It’s been a joy watching them grow and achieve wider recognition ever since, with the involvement of über-producer Steve Levine and the prospect of their debut album finally geting major-label release in the course of this year. Where the whole Patch William project will go from there is anyone’s guess. Frontman and songwriter Will Adlard may be shy and selfdeprecating, but he’s an interesting artist with more musical aces up his sleeve than we’ve heard from the band so far.
