Take a listen to some of his tracks below and you’ll see why we’re WOW over Willie of Wilshire.


What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?

The first thing I notice is her eyes and smile. If she has nice eyes and a great smile then I’m hooked. As they say the eyes are the window to the soul. I believe you can tell a lot about a person by the way they look at you and whether a smile is genuine or fake.

What is your ideal first date/ what’s the best date you’ve ever been on?

My ideal first date would be dinner at a nice restaurant, followed by a walk on the beach. That way we have enough time to talk and get to know each other.  Dinner gives us an opportunity to meet and break the ice, and a walk on the beach gives us that one on one time that lets you get to know the person more. Plus a walk on the beach is always romantic.

What’s your instant deal breaker?

Once we start talking about music if she says she doesn’t like Kanye West then that is an instant deal breaker haha. I get it, some people might think he’s to egotistical and all, but I am a big fan of his work. On our first date if she starts bashing him then we probably won’t get along. She has to know that I am an artist as well and aspire to do many similar things. Plus I want to be able to take my girl to a Kanye concert and jump in the mosh pit. She’s gotta be down to roll.

What’s the strangest thing you have ever done to get a love interest’s attention?

The strangest thing I have ever done to get someone’s attention was take a girl a bouquet of red roses back in 7th Grade. I was brought up by my mom to be a gentleman and respectful towards women so I thought that giving her roses, poetry and a love song would do the trick. I had zero game back then haha. I was in love with this girl but could never work up the courage to ask her out. So I decided one day that enough was enough, I was going to tell her how I felt. So I made her this tape recording of Joe “I Wanna Know” and wrote her a love letter/poem. When I got to school I presented her with these gifts in front of her friends and got turned down hard. That was my first heartbreak.

How do you keep the romance alive in your relationship?

You just have to work hard at it to keep up the passion. Try new things, spice it up. The first couple of years are the best, when you are both in the honey moon stage. There is passion, romance, and you can’t get enough of each other. You think everything about that person is the best, and overlook a lot things you might not like or agree with. As they say love is blind. After those first two years or so the passion tends to die down and you have to try harder to keep the relationship alive. You start noticing thing you don’t like and start fighting more. But if the love is real then you have to work to keep the love alive. So I like to always surprise her with simple things like sending her hand written love letters thru the mail. Making custom made gifts like a mug that reads best girlfriend ever signed by me. Taking her on spontaneous trips for the weekend or going on an overseas vacation. And of course writing her a love song and always reminding her that I love her and commentating on all the qualities that I love about her.
