William “Sure Will” Clark Is a dynamic Breakout Smooth Jazz Artist, whose main Instrument is Keyboards. He also plays: Drums, Bass Guitar, Alto Saxophone and Clarinet. His musical resume goes back well over thirty years with humble beginnings playing in the church in Buffalo, New York. A young man influenced by the amazing way George “Chief” Davis skillfully merged a bunch of keys together and the vibe it released. There was no question about it, music was calling him closer.
Sure Will, Arranger, Composer, Recording Artist and Music Director and his band continue to inspire the world through the sound of smooth jazz. He has produced a stellar video from the CD affectionately named My Hero “Uncle Jim” and has released several CD Projects “Out of the Shadows”, “Side By Side” (featuring Sure Will & Joel Del Rosario), “Con-Fusion”, and the “Nothing But Love” single which will be included in his new CD Project Extraordinaire to be released Winter 2016!
Sure Will has performed live in some great venues and events such as The City of Carson Jazz Festival, Las Vegas Hilton Annual Awards, The Long Beach Jazz Festival, NeYo and Faith Evans World Tour, JVC Jazz Festival, Newport Jazz Festival. He has also performed multiple times for the following televised award shows: Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, BET Awards, Country Music Awards. He has also had the honor and pleasure of performing with several other Grammy Award winning artists: Al Jarreau, George Duke, Mary J. Blige, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, New Edition, NeYo and Sade.
After the show with George Duke I miss this man so much.

With a music career now spanning over two decades, guitarist and songwriter, Joel Del Rosario (aka JDR) has just about touched every musical style. From classical to jazz, from hip hop to southern gospel Del Rosario has done it all and now, in partnership with multi-instrumentalist, writer and producer Will ‘Surewill’ Clark, he has slipped effortlessly into a contemporary jazz groove. Not that JDR is totally new to the genre. His 2011 CD ‘Coast To Coast’ was right on the smooth jazz money and this latest project, the wonderful ‘Side By Side’, very much picks up where that left off.
"When Sure Will is performing it's mesmerizing,
Great for the soul"

"Whether he's playing single song solos or backing other artists, Sure Will contributes and underlying spirit in all his performances and studio projects. To see him perform live leaves you with no uncertainty why his electric keyboard compositions are on the jazzy side, breezy, open, and full of groove. His music occasionally leaves Jazz and falls over to the funk side of the fence with the listener wanting more from this talented keyboardist."
