Wil Mimnaugh coming to Golden’s Rockwater

Wil Mimnaugh is performing in Golden on Saturday Dec. 29.

The Rockwater Grill and Bar is filling the void in between Christmas and New Years with some great entertainment. Wil Mimnaugh will be performing on Saturday Dec. 29.

By the age of 13 he was already seriously refining and defining his playing style, unknowingly blending his love of old school country with new divers punk and alternative influences.

His two musically proficient parents handed that love down to him by playing and singing along to old crooners and guitar legends such as Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins, and Hank Williams.

He released his first album, Both Hands, in 2002 and sold more that 6,000 copies off stage. That caught the attention of a booking agent, and the result was a touring schedule that allowed Mimnaugh to perform more than 300 shows in one year, and earned four nominations at the 2005 WCMA’s, including Producer and Entertainer of the Year.

Mimnaugh’s sophomore album was released on a major label, and featured collaborations with some of Canada’s most respected musicians such as 54-40’s Neil Osborne and Broken Social Scene’s Jason Collett. In 2008 his track Big Life was featured in a pivotal hospital scene in the ABC TV series Eli Stone. And the following year he was featured in the award-winning documentary Music is the Message: Wil, which detailed Mimnaugh’s ongoing journey with music.

“I feel very fortunate in that my music is starting to find its way through avenues such as television and film. I thoroughly enjoy the process of making the music into imagery – when I feel a strong connection to the visuals it is that much more enjoyable,” said Mimnaugh.

Whether performing live, recording an album or writing for film, Mimnaugh is a dedicated and consummate professional. He uses his legendary live show performances to develop his expansive roots-rock sound to create a style that is honest, edgy, raw and delicate, yet achingly beautiful all at once.
