Formerly the solo project of Alexander Simpson, William Within is now an electric folk quintet based in Minneapolis. The group’s sound is laden with unique guitar tunings, whispery vocals and spacious string arrangements, often earning them comparisons to Grizzly Bear, M. Ward, Destroyer and Nick Drake. WW is currently performing songs from their debut self-titled album and new songs to be released on their forthcoming EP. William Within has opened for national touring acts Tilly and the Wall and Peter Wolf Crier, performed a live in-studio on the award-winning Minneapolis radio station Radio K, starred in Radio K’s first ever “Tiny Music Fest” and sold out the 400 Bar for its first CD release. William Within consists of Alexander Simpson on vocals and acoustic guitar, Tom Steffes on electric guitar, Derek Rohlf on violin, Matt Blake on double bass and Toby Ramaswamy on drums and percussion.
