Singer-songwriter William Kuklis has been commanding stages for over 20 years with his powerhouse vocals and lyrical emotion. Kuklis owns and operates his boutique recording studio, Vinyl Deck Studios located in Prince George, and continues to play live shows, write, record, and produce music. 

In 2021, William Kuklis along with The Ebbs, and Ellen Braun, created single entitled The Train for the soundtrack of an upcoming film Ariel Alpha. Supported by Creative BC's Career Development program, the music video is set in a dystopian world besieged by economic depression and environmental depredation, The Train is visually rooted in the early-20th century aesthetic of a collapsed civilization that has yet to fully experience the game-changing effects of advanced robotic and artificial intelligence research.

William’s music has been featured on international radio, film and television and he has performed live throughout Canada and internationally. He has shared stages with artists such as Alicia Witt, Craig Cardiff, David Ross Macdonald, The Be Good Tanyas, and John Bottomely.

Kuklis recounts about his experience working on The Train music video, "I have had some great success with this project so far including lots of radio play locally, nationally, as well as internationally."
