I was born and raised in north louisiana about halfway between haynesville and Summerfield…little place called cypress bottom. I got what we country boys call a good job…working in the gulf of mexico on an oil rig. I have always been a huge music lover. My old man turned me on to Hank Williams when I was 3 or 4 years old, and the radio has been my best friend ever since. As i got a little older, i got into all kinds of music. You name it, and i listened to it…and actually learned to love it all. To each his own though and for me it was outlaw country and southern rock. Uncle Hop, I guess, was the one who turned me on to all that. He had all the Waylon Jennings you could stand, and i could stand a heap. Somewhere, in that time I got a Hank Williams jr. album and thats when I really got turned on. I guess you could say I've done my fair share of making him a rich man. He is my biggest influence, no doubt…..but Willie, Waylon, Skynyrd, Steve Earle, Marshall Tucker, Allman Brothers, Black Crowes, and so many more have influenced me tremendously. As far as my personal music goes, i guess it was kind of a surprise to everyone, including me. A guitar fell in my lap during my junior year of college and changed my life. Shortly there after I wrote my first song and have been writing and singing ever since. Luckily, people have liked it enough to give me the confidence to really make a go of it. So here goes……..

Biography
At 22 years old, singer-songwriter Ethan Willis is already turning heads in the country music scene. From his masterfully composed lyrics to his explosive live performances, Ethan displays the passion and professionalism of a seasoned touring artist. And he shows no signs of slowing down. His debut single "Camo & Ammo" gives his fans a feel of what this country singer is all about. The edgy, high-energy chord progressions combined with his outlaw-style lyrics will make you wishing it was hunting season. Ethan is currently in the studio recording his highly anticipated debut album which will be released in the summer of 2016.

Ethan started pursuing a music career at an early age. He started playing drums for various bands all over Memphis, TN. This allowed him to hone his stage craft and gain admiration within the music community. During this time, Ethan was perfecting his songwriting craft as a country artist. His songs were gaining so much popularity he decided it was time to take it to the next level. His debut concert as Ethan Willis was at a showcase for Warner Music Group at the Hard Rock Café in Memphis, TN. Ethan and his band took stage and blew the audience away. This never-before-seen act left the crowd wanting more (especially Warner Music Group!) and ended up leaving that night with the title of Top Performer! Since then he has been steadily gaining fans and support and hopes to one day take the stage at Bridgestone Arena. Ethan Willis is an artist you should not sleep on!
