WILLIAM BECKETT (formerly of The Academy Is...) with CARA SALIMANDO at the Pike Room



WILLIAM BECKETT



William Beckett is the former frontman of recently disbanded Chicago pop darlings The Academy Is. The band toured relentlessly, growing large enough to sell out entire tours of large clubs and small theaters. They toured worldwide. They played all the late-night shows.

The band broke up, and William set out to write new music. He was told by his label that they were songs that would make him a superstar. Then they dropped him. Instead of destroying his will, it set him free. He's now armed with a new EP, due soon, called "Walk The Talk". He calls them the best songs he's written, full of "fearlessness and new ideas".
