Local Music: Will Johnson and Chill Factor

Will Johnson has wanted to play music and perform since he watched Amadeus in second grade. Over the years, that desire to play music and perform has led him to become a well-known figure here in Eagle River and throughout Alaska as both a solo musician and as the front man for a band called “Chill Factor.” The band has performed at events like the Governor’s Ball this past year and at an annual party hosted by Martin Buser, a champion Iditarod musher. At first, though, he wanted to play the violin.
