About Artist

William James “Will” Sparks is an Australian producer and DJ from Melbourne, Australia, who is best known for his 2013 single “Bring It Back” with Joel Fletcher and his 2014 single “Ah Yeah So What!” featuring Wiley and Elen Levon.

Will Sparks attended high school in Melbourne at Camberwell High School and Caulfield Grammar, but he dropped out at the end of year 11 to pursue a musical career. His debut EP, Another Land, was released in Australia and debuted at number 35 in December 2014.

Will Sparks has been on tour in America, Europe and Asia and played at festivals like TomorrowWorld, Tomorrowland, Stereosonic and Future Music Festival.

Will Sparks was named the number one Australian DJ in 2014. In January 2014, Will Sparks partnered with the electric music lifestyle brand Electric Family to produce a bracelet. 100% of the proceeds from this bracelet are donated to Beyond Blue. This company works to reduce the impact of anxiety, depression, and suicide.

In May 2014, Sparks embarked on a month-long European tour. He’s continued to tour Europe every year since then, except for 2020. From August to November 2014, he toured North America with Timmy Trumpet and Joel Fletcher as part of their Bounce Bus Tour. After that, will sparks returned home for a homecoming show.

In September of last year, it was discovered that the video Spinnin Records produced for Sparks’ song “Take Me” was almost entirely made up of footage from the award-winning and Oscar-nominated animated short film “Requiem for Romance.” The creators of the film didn’t give permission for its use, and Spinnin’ Records didn’t bother seeking it.

Though Ng was successful in getting YouTube to take down the clips of his music video, Spinnin’ Records continued to use images from the video on their website and in publicity materials. Ng is now exploring his legal options against the company. However, Sparks claimed he had no knowledge of the alleged copyright infringement, as he only produced the music for the accompanying video.
