Album Notes
William Maxwell began his musical studies on classical guitar at the age of six. His interest in electric bass began  at age 12 when a "friend brought over this guitar with really fat strings". Since then he has played in a wide range of ensembles including orchestras; jazz ensembles;  rock, celtic, blues, and metal bands; pop and country groups; and various duets...even as a solo bassist.

William produced three albums, Remembrance, Horizons, and Q in his own studio before embarking on a two year stint as chief engineer at Estudio Morelia in Mexico. He returned  to attended Humboldt State University, completing a degree in music composition in 1999. During that time he had many pieces performed by various groups and soloist around the U.S., including the HSU Symphony, Wind Ensemble, and Chamber Orchestra; the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts Orchestra; and as a national composition contest winner at the MENC national conference in Phoenix, Arizona.

William keeps a full schedule of live performances and studio sessions. He has performed/recorded with Tempest, Groove Mob, China Crisis, DWM, The Frothing Dawgs, Michael Manring, The Steve Trembley Band, Nick Vigarino,  Doug McGrew, GreenManGruvin, Larry Lampi, The Skagit Symphony, and dozens of others.

William Maxwell's "The Picture Show"
William Maxwell, a delightful personality, is obviously a very talented and versatile musician. His new CD, The Picture Show, is a unique mix of tunes that will take you on a deep ride when you allow yourself to simply be alone with his music. What a lovely experience to listen to William's compositions and watch the picture show that unfolds in your mind. I especially enjoyed Windows and Blue Into Green, and look forward to soothing myself by listening to William's tunes each time I want to enjoy a new picture show within.

He is a very talented and versatile musician. The compositions are just great, relaxing and beautiful listening to. The various basses, keys, drums and world percussion, gives the listener a journey you might say.
After a hard day’s work, it’s nice to slip down on your sofa and listen to “The Picture Show”
Good work Mr. Maxwell!
