From marching a snare drum in the Tournament of Roses Parade to singing in front of a packed concert hall, Will is highly motivated with a tenacious ear for creativity. He began on piano but moved to drums in the footsteps of his father, learning and playing along with a cd player. Percussion ensembles, talent shows, and marching band fueled a desire to perform until he received an 8-track digital recorder.

During college, Hauptle was honored to meet and learn from heavyweight songwriters Steve Miller and Pat Metheny. At some point it occurred to Will that re-imagining old songs would give them new life. For example, a reggae version of “You Shook Me All Night Long” by AC/DC, or turning Beatles numbers into jazz riddles. On the side, Hauptle leads a disco-funk band called Greenwing. Keep an ear out for the next musical mix-up he's going to discover!
