Willard Bond

Creating from Desire 

In the music world, you are either creating new tunes or you are singing in the past.  But what if your new ideas conform to old patterns?  Can that be good, will it be ignored, or is it excitingly retro?  Willard will be exploring the rules of musical creation in the broader context of general creativity, looking through his own toolbox to help you expand your own set of creative tools. 


Willard Bond is an NLP Master Practitioner several times over and a very dear friend of NLP Canada Training. His presentation at the first HOPE was a wonderful mix of story and song and NLP. Since then, he has returned to HOPE with more music and some martial arts.


Willard Bond is a prolific independent singer/songwriter performing and recording in the roots/rock tradition. Growing up near Guelph, Ontario, Willard developed an early and deep appreciation for the music of Hank Williams, Queen and Peter Gabriel.  Willard has recorded two previous albums: "Men in the Moon", 1993. and "Youngest Man in the World", 2009. Now he's releasing "The Happy Trail", 13 upbeat rock'n'roots originals.  He has also penned well over 100 more songs - about life, love, learning - and is currently preparing to record and release many of these through 2011 and into 2012. Along with a passion for military history and films, Willard holds a third degree black belt in karate. He lives in Toronto with his cats Thomson & Jeff, where he works as a freelance recording engineer and self defence instructor.
