The self titled acoustic EP “Breaking” release this year was inspired by the fact that, despite his ability to front a rock band, Bill is determined to let the world know where he is truly coming from. “I wanted to trim the fat on this one…just keep it raw and real.”
Just a year ago, his song 6 Strings (recorded with his former band Craving Dawn) hit the air, notably on a radio station that primarily plays hard rock and metal.
In the winter of 2003, Bill went through a painful divorce and started putting his passive-aggressive emotions on paper. Then it just clicked. Bill realized he had a gift for tying the elements together. “It was like therapy I didn’t know I needed.” he says. Then one song after another poured out. He got a notebook, and amongst scratches and scribbles came “…something people need to hear. I know they can relate.”
Bill produced solo album “Passion Seeds”, in which he gave away about 150 copies. But the “band” were his keyboard and multi-track recorder. He decided to get some real musicians together, who later became Rock band Craving Dawn. The 5 piece group had local success in Boise, Idaho, playing over 50 live shows in their first year. They produced as well, album “Learning Curve”, performed in Las Vegas and sent song Altar For Fears to France on a Midem compilation CD.
In the fall of 2011, Bill left Craving Dawn (who broke up immediately after) due to conflict and personal reasons to set out solo once more, working on material to record and perform, and has since realized the beginning of his dream. The cover songs can go…the fans are now asking for nothing but his original songs at his live shows.
