Wil hasn't quit his day job...yet

WIL Edgar, formerly of Grafton, can't yet quit his day job as a waiter at a Gold Coast restaurant, but if the trajectory of his band continues he might just have to.

Wil's band, pop rockers Nine Sons of Dan, played at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards on Saturday night (alongside Sneaky Sound System and Natalie Bassingthwaighte) as winners of the national New Artists 2 Radio competition in the rock category.

Aside from a digital distribution deal with MGM and marketing advice from industry experts, the band will share $1.3 million worth of national radio exposure with the winner of the pop category (Danielle Blakey).

How things have changed for Wil

A little over 12 months ago he was living in Grafton, teaching anyone who was keen to learn to hold a beat on the drums just so he could do what he loves - music.
