There's an unmistakable Southern accent in Bill's voice and in his music. Born and raised in the Deep South, it's impossible not to be influenced by the gumbo of musical styles that have been born there and spread throughout the world, from the roots of country, the blues and rock & roll. There must be something in the water.
Bill has won the Chris Austin Songwriting competition at Merlefest as well as recognition and awards from BMI, ASCAP, Nashville Songwriter's Association and two first place finishes in the Music City Song Festival.
He's performed at festivals throughout the South, including Merlefest, City Stages, Riverfest, Big Spring Jam, Bayfest and the Briefield Music Festival. He has played with electric and acoustic groups and solo at many clubs and events throughout the South. through the years.
Influenced by a wide range of artists from The Band to Guy Clark to Hank Williams and The Beatles, Bill's original songs have their roots firmly set in the red clay of his native Alabama, with country and folk influences as well as Southern rhythms. In a word, Americana.
