William Baisely, better known as WillPowr is an Aboriginal-Canadian Hip Hop artist getting his feet wet in the Christian rap genre. He is currently signed to Soul Keyol Group.
A rough upbringing involving physical abuse, drugs and addiction led Will down a path that only his motivation to do better, could save him from. Introduced to crack cocaine at just 14, by a close family member Will struggled to maintain normality as his life and the lives of those around him perished to severe indiscipline and dereliction. After multiple failed suicide attempts, relapses and psychotic episodes, Will decided it was time for a change.
As he navigated life with the stresses of mental illnesses such as Bipolar Disorder and PTSD, Will achieved what he once thought to be impossible, he got clean.
Now, a motivational speaker with the goal to uplift and enrich the lives of others through his music, Will is determined to create a sound that echoes action. His first single will be released this fall.
