A range of different energies incarnated into an album. Will's latest release is like a platter of delicacies you can choose from.

Will Sims' album, "You Have A Voice, Use It" deals with imposter syndrome, mental health, and finding the true meaning of life. The album starts with an intense piece, "Lose Control". Here he talks about the ambiguity of existence and his bigger purpose. The heart-throbbing guitars and punchy acoustic drums give you an immersive experience while you listen to the song. His blend of different genres of Rock, Alternative, and Pop influences him to write beautiful ballads with uplifting and energetic tunes. "To Remind You" is the most popular track from the album. It is a jab at someone who couldn't recognize your value and left you at your lowest. This is an announcement and a reminder to them about what they are missing out on.

The album eventually enters into a more mellow vibe with the soundtrack "I Should Never Have Given up on You". Will says "...You were everything I could ever need..." and expresses his grief caused by him giving up on a loved one. You could easily fall in love with this song as it is like a comfort track after you lose someone really close to you. The whole album is like a mini journey. The journey includes anger and resentment towards the state of the world, and regret towards the decisions made by the artist so far.

Now, the tempo picks up and the album closes with a cry for help; "Where Are You Now?". The artist talks about his regret about a certain situation and the melancholy faced on not finding a hand to hold on to or a shoulder to lean on.

To create a better world, and speak about the ongoing injustice, and challenges faced in the living environment, artist, Will Sims encourages listeners and offers hope and empowerment conveying the message that distress only makes us stronger and unity and love are the pathways to a better world.
