"SideHatch"

“passion and commitment – this music is about picking one thing and doing it better than anyone else… Bill knows what he is doing, is soulful and jazzy….” - Ben Maitland-Lewis Sidehatch Entertainment Oct 2007


"Airomee Wind"

"Bill Champitto - You Know Me"

Ladies and gentleman, a VAULT first, an adult contemporary review!!!
Let me preface the review with the following: 1) I am not a fan of adult contemporary, and 2) When it comes to the intricacies of the genre, I have no idea what I am talking about. What I can speak to is passion and commitment -- picking one thing and doing it better than anyone else. If I, a total non fan of the genre, can pick up on Bill Champitto's passion through just a couple of quick listens, I think it is safe to say Bill knows what he is doing. "You Know Me" is soulful and jazzy, with a slight reggae edge at times. Will you find the disc in my car? No. The CD player by the pool? Why the hell not. Variety is the spice of life. Oh and his picture rocked.
