Born in Bountiful Utah during the winter of discontent and before the summer of love, singer/songwriter/multi- instrumentalist William Pollett grew up immersed in music. The pop sensibilities of The Beatles and the Monkees were combined with the real zeal of Johnny Cash and Frank Zappa in making Pollett's eight-track audio influence. He saved all of his allowance to buy an album every week as he practiced air guitar in every reflective surface. His father bought him a Fender Stratocaster at the age of five, which he destroyed by turning the guitar into a bow and the amplifier into a clubhouse. His mother promoted his interest in music by taking him to concerts and buying him a drum set. He is the director of the Free Academy for Creative Expression and teaches Writing Song Lyrics at Weber State University.
William will be playing the Concert for Adrian at Weber State University 9/10/11 at 7:30 pm
