About Will

Will Hammond started his artistic career in elementary school, attending the Cathedral School for Boys and singing in the Grace Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys for three years. Once he graduated to high school he honed his craft at the Urban School of San Francisco, performing and singing in various plays under the direction of Ellen Sebastian (Life on the Water Theater) and George Coates and performing with the Young People’s Musical Theater ensemble. While studying music and theater at San Francisco State University, he wrote and arranged the smash hit “Hold You Tight” performed by Tara Kemp on the Warner Bros. label. The song went to #3 on the Billboard Pop and R&B charts and went to become a certified gold record with 800,000 units sold.

His most recent projects have been in writing for theater productions and sound design, working on “Flow” by Luminating Works, “Trucker Rhapsody” and “La Sangre” by playwright Toni-Press Coffman and “To Hades and Back” by Katherine Murphy. Will has also composed the score for the play “The Seven” by playwright Will Power, a hip-hop rendition of Aeschylus’ greek tragedy “Seven Against Thebes” which premiered off-Broadway in 2006 at the New York Theatre Workshop and will be at San Diego’s La Jolla Theater in 2008.

Will Hammond’s experience in digital media & video production has involved him in various projects, specifically a teaching media to youth at ZEUM, instructing teens for a local television program for BAYCAT (Bayview Hunters Point Center for Arts & Technology) and filming a documentary based on the youth choir at Megan Furth Academy (formerly Sacred Heart Elementary) in San Francisco. He has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, California Arts Council, the Bernard Osher Foundation and a Phil Brown Broadcast scholarship in Video Production and Editing.
