Will Guthrie is one of those performers who continually seem to question the boundaries of his artistic practice. His latest LP “People Pleaser” sees him expanding his drum kit with a diverse range of samples, including everything from the sound of skateboarding to religious chant. In his live performances too, Guthrie seems eager to move beyond conventions, his project “solo for one person” being an excellent case in point.
