Will Crummer is very much his own man. He has his own dress style – part Raro, part Rat Pack – and once you meet him, you’re highly unlikely to ever mistake him for someone else. He’s a proud man but at the same time very humble, with a serious demeanor, but he laughs very easily. He speaks very openly and honestly but manages to remain guarded at the same time. When I pressed him for details relating to his early career he said, “It’s a long time ago. I can’t tell you; I might tell you a lie.”
Will grew up in Rarotonga and although he has spent much of his life in New Zealand, he has never lost his love for his island home. He will tell you “it is paradise”. It would seem the Crummer family have music in their blood: his daughter Annie Crummer needs no introduction and his son, David, who has been based in Australia for some years, is an accomplished singer and musician with his own recording studio.
