Born in the beautiful and serene countryside of Maryland in 1949. Played an old piano in a farmhouse as a kid. Put together and played drums in a big R&B showband in Baltimore in the sixties. Joined the Air Force, went to Germany, started playing the piano again, then went to Berklee, then NYC, then Raleigh/Durham, and now Miami. Has worked as pianist, composer, arranger, producer and teacher, and actually fed himself by it for nearly thirty years. Loves playing in a jazz trio or funky band, as well as behind interesting singers...even solo. Currently working with Russian jazz singer Anna Nikolaeva, Latin singer/songwriter Elizabeth Ayoub, and guitarist/composer/producer Steve Loveless. 'A Little Romance' - An overall mood both dreamy and intense. Most pieces are original compositions; two are modern adaptations of 19th century songs. His latest release, 'Out The Box,' finds Bill with a great band playing fun, serious, gnarly, straight-ahead, whimsical jazz & odd funk.
