Will Holifield is a rising indie/folk singer-songwriter hailing from Farmington, MO. First and foremost a poet and literary enthusiast, his diverse writing styles encompass themes of post-existentialism, applied Kantianism, and "McCandless" ideals; rooting firmly at the contemporary absurdities of the human condition, and the endless endeavor to search for the source of true happiness.
Gathering as much from 19th century philosophers and authors as modern-day musicians, Will's writing is not only instrospective, but "out"trospective, involving and offering an enlightened perspective on everything we see and touch, as well as us ourselves.

To the Core [With Every Breath] Track number: 2 Year: 2011 Album: With Every Breath Genre: Folk
Today I am born From the scattered and forlorn Perspectives spreading my sights open wide I awoke on the floor Abrassive in decor With a million other faces just like mine And to say I abhor Fire, lust, and war Is to say that I loathe me, myself and wine And the rain starts to pour It's just through my open door And for the first time in my life, I feel fine My heart's racing Every clockhand, every hourglass My body's aching To the core But baby, you make it easy to forget this With every breath that's in me That same breath will be yours Break through the glass That's shattered at half mast The windows and their curtains flung aside We're just members of a chord That are picked and played for lords To a tune that's meant to bore the waiting lines
