    Additionally, he is also his dad’s favorite. Maybe because he’s the youngest or the only other guy in the family, but Mr. Henly does talk about his son a lot with the public. For instance, after his high school graduation in 2017, young Henly took a break from his studies. During that time, according to his dad, the father-son duo traveled around. It was one of the most special times shared by them.

    Into that bargain, he soon enrolled himself at the University of Southern California for a degree in music. Currently, he’s already graduated and lives a literal musical life.

    Don’s Son Is Also Into Music

    Growing up in the loving arms of a musician helped foster Will’s interest in the field as well. When asked how he got his “start with music” during a college interview, he said,

    “I got my start with music as a baby, listening from the carseat while my parents played a variety of artists from The Foo Fighters to Leo Kottke and even Tool. After the standard 1st-grade stint as a recorder player, I began playing guitar casually with friends while in elementary school, then performing with several bands in high school as a bassist, guitarist and drummer, playing rock and alternative music.”

    As they say, “Like-father, like-son”, the 26-year-old has worked with a number of artists too, including his dad. He’s worked with young artists like Camellia Boutros, Kumi Maxson, and Jacob Gilmore in their gangster-style jazz. Along with them, he has also collaborated with director, Erik Pearson on the theatrical production of The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui.

    What’s more, is that he has also accompanied his dad on an Eagles tour. He was in his supporting role as a guitarist during the band’s An Evening with the Eagles tour in Indianapolis.
