A Bit About Will

All In Time

Will Callery was born and christened William Woodward. His father, also named William, had perished the previous year while piloting a 8th Army Air Corps B17 bomber over Germany. Although he never met his father, young William undoubtedly inherited his genes – apart from being a flier, his father was a musician and played sax, flute and clarinet. Initially raised in Terre Haute, Indiana by his material grandparents, when William’s mother remarried John Callery, who operated a whiskey distillery, young William settled in Owensboro, Kentucky.

  • 1. Will's Early Life... Graduating from high school in 1962, Will promptly donned a uniform and served in the army for the ensuing four years. Back in Civvy Street, on America’s West Coast, it was the Summer of Love. Will began performing music in coffeehouses and bars up and down the coast - the Ash Grove in L.A., the Ice House in Pasedena and the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach - and the budding musician shared stages with Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee, young Arlo Guthrie and the soon to be famous David Lindley.

    short paragraph or two...

  • 2. Life is good...In 1969 Callery met Roger Bartlett and the pair headed for Austin, Texas where they performed as the duo Lusaza Goose, opening shows for Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson, Little Feat and more. Walker began cutting Callery’s songs - “The First Showboat” [“Walker Collectibles” 1974], “The Pot Can’t Call The Kettle Black” [“Ridin’ High” 1975], “Leroy” [“It’s A Good Night For Singin’” 1976], “Pass It On” [“Gypsy Songman” 1986] and probably Will’s best known song “Hands On The Wheel” [“Too Old To Change” 1979].

  • 3. Just Keeps Getting better...Will next formed a band, that was billed as Billy C and the Austin Healys. While touring in the South West, Will learned that Willie Nelson had cut “Hands On The Wheel.” Fate determined it would appear on the concept album “The Red Headed Stranger” [1975]. Released by CBS Records, the recording eventually went double platinum and was nominated for a Best Country Album Grammy, which doubtless went a long way in helping Callery ink a recording contract with CBS Lone Star, Nelson’s boutique record label.

  • 4. Height of the Fall... Filmed in Nashville [and other locations] during December 1975/January 1976, Callery appeared in the music documentary “Heartworn Highways,” during the smoke filled, alcohol fuelled, late night song pull at Guy Clark house, which culminated in a performance of “Silent Night. “Hands On The Wheel” went on to become the lead song on the soundtrack to the Jane Fonda/Robert Redford/Willie Nelson movie “The Electric Horseman” [1979].

    Pete Smith

    PEAT’S FEATS
    Copyright© will callery 2013

    I first met Pete Smith in the late 80’s while lumberjacking in Montana. Pete was all of fourteen at that time. He and his older brother were raised be his folks, Doc and Kathy Smith and his Great Grandparents, Bob and Betty Chambers in that small, little mining community of Anaconda, Montana, an old copper smelting boomtown of the late 1800’s. Anaconda sits exactly one mile high in the Pintler Mountain Range. Young Pete would come up the Mountain to my cabin. He invited me over to the Chambers’ one Sunday for a fine spread of a meal, I do believe we became family that day.
    Pete’s Pappy, Doc, was a combat medic in ‘Nam and recipient of the Silver Star and multiple Purple Hearts and lived elsewhere for a spell. It was my pleasure to have met him several times.
    Pete went on to do ten years in the U.S. Air Force as an Avionics Technician. Pete stayed in touch over the years and today we are partners in a small production company, PETE’S FEATS . Music, that’s what we do. Touch hearts! We’ve been accuse of being a tad “touched”.
    Pete is the Executive Producer of the outfit. Pete is a fine Ragtime piano player, a five string banjo player and he plays a little guitar. Pete played percussion throughout grade school and high school. We wear roots boots.
    Pete Smith is qualified and licensed to fly anything from a 737 to a Lear Jet, from a turbo prop, a Super King Air to flying bush in Alaska, from floats to wheels. All of the Above so to speak. A man could not ask for a better partner. When we get this music biz figured out perhaps we’ll be flying high!
    ALL IN TIME is our second project. RIDER COMIN’ IN was our first. Both of these projects we’re recorded in Austin, Texas. That’s where we like it. At Layton DePenning’s ELMO’S LAB and Mike Morgan’s ZONE with Pat Manske engineering.
    It has been a long and winding road since THE RIDER COMIN’ IN project in 2008.
    We need to guitar this thing off the ground and into the air (waves) m’ man.
    ALL IN TIME
