2010 The Bishop of Frankfort- EP



The Bishop was formed in 2009. The almost immediate synergy amongst the members spawned an outpouring of creative energy that resulted in the release of their debut self titled CD in 2010.

The Bishop's lineup is as talented as it is inspired. They are anchored by principal song writer / lead singer / lead guitarist Bill Giricz, who is the driving force musically in this powerful band. The soulful voice and multi-instrumental excellence of Paulette Bertrand gives The Bishop an added unexpected dimension. Dan Passarell's rock and roll soul provides a lethal jagged edge. 80's rock drum legend and former Atlantic recoding artist with the D'Molls, Billy McCarthy, drives a solid, hard charging sound. Darin Gregg provides unique song writing depth and energy that is the lifeblood of this band.

The Bishop's influences are many and varied and are reflected in some of the cover material they choose; Radiohead, Rolling Stones, Weezer, The Black Keys, Sublime, David Bowie, Wilco, Red Hot Chili Peppers, No Doubt, The Darkness and Tom Petty, to name a few. All of which move the audience.
