Bill’s childhood was itinerant and tumultuous. Travelling all the way round the globe before he turned seven, his family eventually settled in Kent, the Garden of England. Music and songwriting were interests from an early age, but it wasn’t until he was a teenager that the carousel of hobbies finally came to rest, with a guitar round Bill’s neck, a pair of drum sticks in his hand, and a head full of effervescing dreams of rock and roll symphonies. High school guitar heroes, years of rigid academic studies, and a brief stint with a traveling circus all left their mark on Bill's songwriting. The result is a raconteur fusion of raw storytelling, and intricately-wrought arranging.
