Bill Smith~Sonic Metals

Bill Smith is a drummer/percussionist who grew up with a passion for sound and rhythm. Early exposure to rock music and later jazz and 20th Century classical, greatly influenced his musical direction.

Bill's journey would soon take him down another path when he began listening to traditional music from various parts of the globe. One group of instruments that he was particularly drawn to was the family of gongs and singing bowls. He soon began creating music on his large collection of sonic metals. These explorations eventually led to the recording of his first solo CD titled "Music for Gongs, Bells and Singing Bowls.

Bill also stays active playing traditional drum set, frame drums, doumbek, and other ethnic percussion instruments in various ensembles.
