Will has played in many diverse bands both originals and covers over the years however, INXS has remained his one love. INXS’s music was the reason Will got into singing and songwriting in the first place. Back in 1997 while INXS were preparing for a homecoming tour, Will was entered TRIPLE M’s “Sing Like Michael” radio competition and won all three heats and as a prize won back stage passes to meet INXS. Unfortunately Michael Hutchence passed away just two weeks before Will was able to claim his prize. More recently Will had the amazing opportunity to work with GARRY BEERS (bass player for INXS) on one of his original tracks called ‘Man Out Of Time’. In no uncertain terms Garry marvelled at how close Wills voice resembled Michaels. Will has also worked as a front man for Absolutely Live The Doors Show and got his first break at an INXS Tribute Show many years ago in a band called “What You Need”. Will’s deep and early childhood memories, experiences and connection to INXS has ensured that X is as close as you’ll get to the real thing-INXS. In a way Will Jova has been preparing for this ultimate role and privilege all his life, without even knowing it.
