William Douvris is a musician in Chicago, Illinois. Douvris strongly believes in the power of creative expression in an adult’s life. While many people stop trying to be creative once they hit adulthood, Douvris continues to become more and more creative with every year that passes. Recently, William was in a Metallica cover band, and he greatly enjoyed the experience. Douvris believes that when a band starts out with cover songs, they have a much better chance of success. Once the band matures, Douvris believes that is when they should begin writing their own music.
Metallica’s “Justice for All” album, which came out the year William was born, inspired Douvris to pick up a guitar at the age of ten. Every instrument that William plays was self-taught, and this is something that he is extremely proud of! Douvris’ parents could not help but notice his love and talent for music. This led them to send him to the Music Industry Workshop, or MIW. Here, Douvris learned how to record and do professional audio. Music Industry Workshop provided William with the technical training to be able to record his own music.
William recorded sixteen of his own songs in 2014 and released eleven on iTunes. Douvris is proud of the fact that he recorded in the same studios as Kanye West and Price! While William is currently focusing on other professional pursuits, he simultaneously sets aside time for creating music for future albums.
