William Wild is a 24 year old singer/songwriter from Knoxville Tennessee. Though, William Wild is only his moniker. His real name is Garrett Sale. Sale chose the name William Wild after the nickname of a homeless man. Ironically his father was homeless for five years and ultimately died that way. Sale drew from these experiences with the result being “When I’ve Been Gone,” a heartfelt and emotional look through his father’s eyes. The man who fell for drugs and ultimately chose the streets was the same person who bought Sale his first guitar, a 70s Gibson J-50 acoustic.
In an interview with roots music website No Depression, Sale talks about his songwriting approach stating, “It almost always starts on the guitar; I’ll be fooling around on the guitar and try to find a groove or emotional feeling; I might start humming along with it during the day or next couple of days. Sometimes I land on lyric that feels compelling. It’s way easier to say what I want to say when I’m not distracted and when I can hear what the song sounds like with guitar.
