Bill has played with The Malards, The Sound Foundation, Just Before 60, Wacks and Albion Moonlight. He and songwriting partner John Simon were "in-the-mix" for signing with Shelter Records in the late 70's along with The Dwight Twilley Band and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.
While they didn't make the final cut they did continue to perform in Southern California at venues like The Cuckoo's Nest and Madame Wong's. These days Bill is focusing on writing and recording in his home studio. He has 2 current releases at CD Baby...Briardale and Watch Over Me.
1. Down in the Little Woods- Acoustic guitar solo in double drop D tuning. Drift down a dirt road to a back porch then lift up over the trees and thru the glen.
2. That’s My Car- My friend Jeff Askew played some great blues-driven lead guitar on this Beach Boys sounding tune about the pride of cruisin' SoCal on your very own wheels.
3. Shadows on the Run- A positive take on how John Lennon might kick back and describe a great afternoon in the studio. Some Harrison-ish guitar as well.
4. I’ll Be By Your Side- Life has plenty of ups and downs. We need to assure our friends that we’ll always be there.
5. Let Freedom Ring- A song of sacrifice. This is how I thought the Byrds might do it.
6. Till the Day that I Die- Sometimes ya just can’t make ends meet! Pretty basic blues tradition with the line..."I got no money for to pay the rent; It's all been spent!"
7. When Children Grow Up- People will tell you that kids grow up too fast. Then one day you realize…They were right!!!
8. Month of Sundays- Upbeat, fun instrumental originally written as a McCartney folksy thing. . Reminds me of a car commercial. Vrrooom...
