Bio

For years a dynamic performer on the New York music scene, Bill Maier's talents as a songwriter and singer earned him the respect of his musical peers, and rave reviews in local and national publications. Good Times Magazine said, “Maier writes lyrics that touch the heart, and melodies that stay in your head.” Newsday's Nightbeat called him “a songwriting sharpshooter ...one of New York's best kept musical secrets." Time Out New York Magazine proclaimed, “The soft croon of Ten Gallon Fat’s Bill Maier is reminiscent of David Wilcox or the homesick urban folk of Catie Curtis…”
Maier’s reputation has spread from New York to Nashville and beyond. His song, Little Tin Can, was judged among the top songs (out of 5000 entries) in a recent CMT/Nashville Songwriters Association’s Songwriting Contest . Regular appearances at the world famous Bluebird Café, Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Douglas Corner Café and other Nashville mainstays have brought him a legion of new fans, the attention of a few major music publishers, and the opportunity to perform in-the-round with an A-list of Nashville hit writers, including Bob DiPiero, Deborah Allen, Pam Belford, Alex Call, and Stewart Harris.

Maier’s songs have already been covered by a wide variety of artists; from indie country artists like JR & The Roadkill Choir, and Brad Conner & Longshot, to adult contemporary artist Charles Langley, and 50’s Doo-Wop stars Randy and The Rainbows. His songs have been featured in Tommy Hilfiger stores nationwide, and have been featured in indie film and on numerous commercial and internet radio shows. Expect to hear some major label country artists singing some of Maier’s songs soon now that publishers are plugging his songs on Nashville’s famed Music Row.

Having just finished recording his long awaited solo debut album, Maier has already begun working on a followup scheduled for a summer 2008 release. Meanwhile, songs from Maier’s critically acclaimed album with his band, Ten Gallon Fat are still finding a new audience on college and internet radio, years after they first got a few spins from local commercial stations.
