Will Stroet of Will’s Jams is the ultimate star of kindie rock! A JUNO-, WCMA- and CFMA-nominated musician, CBC Kids, Universal Kids and KidoodleTV star, educator and dad, he’s well loved for his original rock, folk, and blues music with witty wordplay and catchy choruses. Since 2005, Will has performed 2,000 shows for young audiences across Canada and China. His bilingual music in English and French inspires kids to be active, healthy, creative and engaged in the world. Will’s 10th album, “Rocks and Roots,” has been nominated for a 2020 CFMA and is a celebration of nature, the outdoor and trying new things. This fall, he premiered his symphony show with the 67-piece Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and is working on bringing the show across Canada.
Will first discovered his talent for writing kids’ music while completing his education degree at the University of B.C. After releasing his first album in 2005 and playing hundreds of shows around Vancouver, Will knew he had found his calling. In 2009, he took leave from teaching to pursue music full time and has never looked back. His 10 albums (5 in English and 5 in French) have garnered national recognition including a JUNO nomination, six Western Canadian Music Award nominations, three from the Canadian Folk Music Awards and two from the Sirius XM Indies. In 2015, UBC’s Faculty of Education honoured Will in their top 100 Alumni awards, along with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
