Desert Will’s music brings to life the spirit of Southeastern Idaho’s high plains desert. The Indie Folk/Rock band draws on elements of Americana, Alternative, and other like genres. Their hope is that their music “can bring some sort of beauty and light to a world embroiled in great turmoil” (Brian Randall Carter, July 2020).


From the beginning, Brian Randall Carter and Tracey Cureton have been the principal bandmembers of Desert Will. The two musicians met collaborating with The Tommyknockers. They continued their musical journey working with Transfercase before finally creating the band, Desert Will.


In July 2016, Desert Will released its first album, Transmission from Orions Belt, inspired by a small-town boy’s nightly gazes into a limitless, starlit sky. Haley Hutto joined as a vocalist, and session musicians Eric Nielsen (percussion), Dallin Tolley (bass), and Daniel Watkins (guitars) also added a rich texture to the production. Desert Will is currently preparing to release a new album. Stay tuned!
