Born and raised on the shoes of Lake Erie, Bill began his professional career at the age of 13. When 17 he had moved to Florida and was part of a then vibrant club scene. By 22 he had moved to NYC, performing as a freelance bassist with the area's top jazz, R&B and rock musicians. A few years later, Bill concentrated his efforts on the 8 String Guitar - an instrument which allows him to single-handedly do the work of a small combo. He currently resided in New Market, MD and is an active player in the Baltimore/DC area as well as the rest of the US.
