If you’ve been listening to triple j at any time over the last year, you would undoubtedly have heard of Willaris. K. The 23-year-old muso has been one of the most enigmatic figures in Aussie music recently, with his enthralling electronic soundscapes seeing him become one of triple j’s most-played unsigned acts.
Willaris. K, known to friends and family as Jack McAllister, has been making music for a while now, but it’s in the last year that his profile has really grown, seeing huge amount of airplay on triple j and FBi Radio thanks to tracks like ‘Dour Nights’ and ‘Alchemy’.
From humble beginnings, McAllister has gone from playing small shows to becoming one of the country’s most in-demand producers, supporting the likes of Seekae, and playing huge sets as Splendour In The Grass, BIGSOUND, Groovin’ The Moo, Strawberry Fields, and much more.
Now, Willaris. K has taken the next step in his professional career, with Melbourne-based label Soothsayer announcing the signing of this extremely talented muso today.
“We came across Jack’s music when one of our other artists; Dro Carey played it on his triple j Mix Up early last year and we were instantly taken aback,” explained Soothsayer’s Chris Rigney.
