WILL BROCK: A Letter from Eye to IOriginally from the Pittsburgh area, Will Brock relocated to Philadelphia in 1992 to study jazz performance at the University of the Arts. He immediately made a name for himself as a pianist in Philly's jazz and R&B scene as a sideman for such renowned acts as the Stylistics, Gerald Veasley, Grover Washington, Pieces of a Dream, and many others.
Â Â Â Â Brock later branched out into production. He has written and produced for the likes of Diane Reeves, Pieces of a Dream, Al Jarreau and most recently, Jeff Bradshaw and Glen Lewis.Â Brock debuted his vocal abilities on Veasley's 2001 release On the Fast Track with "I Desire," an R&B ballad that he wrote and produced. On Veasley's 2003 release, Velvet, Brock was featured as a vocalist on "Home," a jazzy soul tune that brought audiences to their feet at concerts across the country.
Â Â Â Â Ready to step out on his own, Will Brock comes to DHP Records with his debut solo album A Letter from Eye to I. On Eye to I, Brock flexes his writing and production skills as he tells a heartfelt tale of love and heartbreak.Â Brock's emphasis on strong song writing creates a level of quality likened only to the earlier days of R&B/Soul.Â The youthful energy and emotion in his voice conjure images of old Marvin Gaye records, while his musical style has obvious Prince influences. With Eye to I, Brock has re-invented himself.Â No longer content to perform and produce behind others, Brock is ready to take his place as a talented singer/songwriter in his own right.
