About D Wills: A visionary artist, born and raised in South East London, D Wills is a rapper bringing a vibrant sound to the UK music scene.

Found delivering captivating performances alone or alongside Da Community (a collective that rolls like family), D Wills continues to grow by pushing the niche and stepping out of the box with his original sound. First coming to UD’s attention via Open Mic, D Wills went on to win a headline spot on the coveted UD x Timberland line-up, a certified one to watch. Having also worked with Lounges.TV and a live orchestra, Brixton Chamber, his growing knowledge and experience is felt with every song. Early support has come from Complex UK, GRM, Mixtape Madness, FLmag and more.
