Girl, You Shoulda Been a Drummer
You Never Give Up
This EP is AMAZING. I'm a huge fan of William Beckett. I loved The Academy Is... but William is really doing wonderful on his own. I'm so happy for him now that he is doing what he has always wanted to do! I love all of these new songs, they're perfect.
Oh love Walk the Talk is my album of the year
Where to begin I am so proud of William. I have been a fan of his since the times of TAI to now in his solo career life. And goodness I couldn't be anymore prouder of him then I am now. The direction he took with his beautiful music making talent has got me grinning from ear to ear. As I dance and sing along to the first three. And pull out my imaginary lighter as I move it back and forth to You Never Give Up. Gosh William you remind me time to time why I have never given up on you. Much luck wish I could see you perform these songs on tour ,but sadly personal matters keep me back. But no worries I hope to meet one of my all time favorite musicians one of these glorious days. Good luck with the selling of the EP for it will sell well for sure.I'll buy it over and over again if I have to because love it so.Can't wait till I get my hard copy of EP with the rest of the bundle. Best of luck with your career.

About William Beckett
Growing up in suburban Chicago, William Beckett established himself as the frontman of emo-pop purveyors The Academy Is.... Prior to The Academy Is..., Beckett played in the acoustic band Remember Maine, releasing the album The Last Place You Look at age 17. The Academy Is... followed in 2003, formed by Beckett along with guitarist Mike Carden, who issued three albums and four EPs -- as well as played on the Warped Tour in 2006 and Honda Civic Tour in 2007, and toured with Kiss in 2010 -- before their October 2011 breakup. During that era, Beckett also provided guest vocals for Fall Out Boy ("Sophomore Slump or Comeback of the Year," "What a Catch, Donnie"), Cute Is What We Aim For ("There's a Class for This"), Gym Class Heroes ("7 Weeks"), and Cobra Starship ("Snakes on a Plane [Bring It]"), and co-wrote songs for Hey Monday ("Homecoming") and Demi Lovato ("For the Love of a Daughter"). By 2012, reportedly after being dropped from Atlantic, Beckett re-emerged as a solo artist under YIKE Records. He debuted the single "Compromising Me" that March ahead of Walk the Talk, the first of three EPs planned for release that year. Beckett embarked on a solo headlining tour in May, with the single "Great Night" and second EP Winds Will Change following over the next two months. Beckett's third EP of 2012 is slated for release in October. ~ Chrysta Cherrie
