Glad you found me! My name is Wim Tapley, and I am a singer/songwriter from the Northern Virginia/DC area. Here is a little bit of my story:
I don’t remember any set date where I truly decided that I was going to start playing music, but it has always just felt like the right thing to do for me. I tried all of the sports and activities that my parents could think of to keep me busy, but at the end of the day it was always music that I gravitated towards. After spending my early years bouncing around between playing the drums and piano and singing in a couple bands, I really found my footing when I began pursuing my solo career. Music is my safe haven. It is and will always be the most interesting, crazy, beautiful thing going on in my life, and I felt that pull from a very young age.
My favorite part about being a musician is the opportunity that I have to impact others and share my thoughts and feelings. I always strive to put out music that is fresh and exciting for people to listen to, and I love the idea that I have a chance to inspire others. There’s a torch that’s being passed on to our generation to continue and build upon what our predecessors have already achieved, and I want to be a part of that story. Music is also an important tool for me to share what’s going on in my head, sonically and with my lyrics, and I try to use songwriting to make people feel a certain way that I wouldn’t be able to communicate with just my words. Music is funny, because it has this strange, universal power that makes people feel really intense emotion, and I try to use that to its fullest potential when I’m writing. I write songs to show people how much they mean to me, get people dancing, make people angry, make people laugh, and as a way to digest things that are going on in my life.
I've got a lot of new material on the way! Make sure to follow all of my social media and Spotify to stay connected with me. Thank you for helping me along on this journey; I would not be able to do what I do without the continual support of those around me.
