From Behind the Scenes to the Front of the Stage

It's nice to see the guy behind the scenes step up into the spotlight every now and again. Gus Seyffert, the man who's worked with everyone from The Bird & The Bee to Junkie XL, has a band of his own now, Willoughby. I'm pretty sure I've seen the guy play guitar with Sia, too, though I was pretty far in the back. Anyway, Willoughby's debut, I Know What You're Up To, is out now and I'd like to spread a little love in his direction.

He's graciously decided to share the first single, "Story", with us, and now we do the same with you. Telling the story of a guy named Story (how's that for deep?), it's a hushed, down tempo track, pretty mellow and melodious at the same time.

If you like what you hear, the band has a ton of regional dates in the next couple of months.

Nice shout out to Willoughby.
You've definitely seen Gus play with Sia - in fact he'll play the Download Festival in Philly with her on Aug 2...
