William Beckett - The Academy Is... [Sound Sessions]

Michael and Kevin are honored to welcome Chicago’s own, William Beckett of The Academy Is… to this episode of Sounds Sessions.

One of the finest musicians hailing straight from the city of Chicago – William Beckett has turned from playing local haunts in the suburbs to a world traveling, jet-setting rockstar.   The Academy Is… have fiercely made their footprint in the Chicago music scene and now are returning to play their hit album, “Almost Here” in its entirety at the House of Blues.

Michael catches up with William to discuss everything from the influential music movement they started with fellow Chicagoan’s Fall Out Boy to what a William Beckett Christmas is like (now that he is a father himself).   You can catch them live on December 20th & 23rd here in Chicago — Now, without further adieu, William Beckett.
