Bill Curreri / Press

“Long Time Gone, This is a musician with a good ear for a melody... It's rock... with one foot in the country rock camp. The air of a Greenwich Village singer songwriter is in the music but so too is the sound of the Eagles, JJ Cale, Tom Petty and even John Hiatt. Some top class New York musicians help Bill out on catchy Radio 2 friendly fodder such as the country rocker "Brother", the fine Beatlesy ballad, "This Night" and laid back cool of "Feather In The Wind".

Well-crafted songs that indicate a life of experience has been poured into them. His own delivery works with his higher register and slight warble quality, but you sense these songs could have a life of their own... Curreri is already working on a follow up for this year, his creative splurge proving that it's better late than never.”
