Prairie Fire contains all new original modern jazz with moments of pastoral folk, funk grooves and rock energy. The songs are a personal expression of the loss, pain, happiness, joy and hope that Billy has experienced this past year.
The prairie fire is a metaphor for renewal and growth in the face of all that is lost.
