About the Artist

Will Stroet of Will’s Jams is a JUNO-nominated musician, nationally recognized educator and former CBC Kids TV star. His high-energy rock-pop music in English and French is full of witty wordplay and sing-along choruses, inspiring kids to be active, creative, caring and community-minded.  In the fall of 2021, he released his 11th album, “Big Shiny Spoons,” which has been nominated for a 2022 Western Canadian Music Award.

Will discovered his talent for writing kids music while completing his bachelor or Education at UBC. After releasing his first album in 2005 and performing 100 shows locally, Will knew he had found his calling. In 2009, he left teaching to pursue music full time and has never looked back.
