William F. Wells was born and raised in Erial, New Jersey, just across the water from Philadelphia. He studied at Berklee College of Music, focusing on Film Scoring and Music Production & Engineering, but also honing his skills as a songwriter, arranger, conductor, and musician. Upon arriving in Los Angeles in 2011, William served as senior engineer at Woodshed Recording in Malibu, CA, owned by film composer Richard Gibbs. He continued on to tour North America with the electropop duo, LMFAO, and later with Canadian music sensation and Quincy Jones protègè, Nikki Yanofsky.
Wells has since had the opportunity to work with such renowned artists as Quincy Jones, Barbra Streisand, The RZA & Wu Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean, DJ Premier, Michael McDonald, Sky Blu (of LMFAO), Logic and many more in the studio and on stage. He recently worked on the Tony, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize Award Winning hit Broadway musical, Hamilton, and also co-wrote the lead single for The Pentatonix, "Can't Sleep Love", for their chart-topping debut self-titled album. In early 2016, Wells completed the nearly year-long Smoke + Mirrors World Tour with Imagine Dragons as keyboardist, guitarist, and background vocalist. Most recently, he contributed to Logic's third studio album, Everybody, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. He is currently touring North America with Logic on keyboards, guitar, and vocals in the artist's first-ever full-band effort to support this album.
