Will Champlin

Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, West Coast singer/songwriter and keyboardist Will Champlin grew up in a musical family and attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston. When his family relocated out East, he would spend his breaks in Nashville, where he honed his songwriting chops and immersed himself in the local music scene, even contributing a song to Heather Hadley's Grammy-winning "Audience of One" LP. Champlin eventually moved back to Los Angeles, where he contributed piano to Michael Jackson's last album, toured with the likes of Chicago, Glen Frey, Max Weinberg, and Billy Ray Cyrus, embarked on a tour in the Middle East to entertain the troops, and became a father. In 2013 he auditioned for season five of "The Voice," where he chose Adam Levine as his mentor, and made it to the season finale. [+]
