‘The Best Of…’ is the newest genre-defying compilation from Will Francis, an indie artist with a fresh take on familiar beats. Will Francis or Dolla Bill offers a blend of familiar styles uniquely with powerful lyrical themes.
The enchanting new album from the multi-faceted singer/songwriter has something for everyone. Drawing from elements of Hip-Hop, Rock, Country, and Folk, ‘The Best Of…’ delves into themes of self-reflection, loss, resilience, humility, love, a higher power, and more. It offers a fascinating listening experience.
‘The Best Of…’ showcases various musical influences and capabilities of the artist with 12 fully unique tracks. The opener, “Busta U-Turn, is a West Coast trap banger that reflects on the past. Turn The Screw, for instance, is all rock and all angst. Each track is focused on its own theme and tone, sometimes wildly distinct from one another. “Pink Ribbon” tells the story of close loved ones fighting cancer. As the name would suggest, “Chill With This” is a soothing song filled with instrumentals and a peaceful message.
From soothing tones to rhythmic energy, the album also takes the listener across different themes, creating a wholly unique experience with genre-blending and mixing that makes the offering special. Will’s deep voice also adds to the power of each song. You can check out his Youtube channel.
