Planets Alive is the musical moniker of singer songwriter Will Van Wig, based out of the northwest suburbs of Chicago on planet Earth, deep within Orion's Arm in the Milky Way Galaxy. 

Mapping out his own path across the stars with his original Alternative Folk Pop music, he has performed in Missouri, California, Wyoming, Colorado, and Illinois, with the goal of reaching the dense cluster of stars in the center of the Andromeda Galaxy. 

Armed with a simple acoustic guitar and soulful vocals, his modern songwriting explores themes surrounding inner struggles while gaining perspective from the vast world continuously moving around us.
