They say impersonation is the most sincere form of flattery. Well, BILL is not trying to imitate the great voices of the past; he's just rejuvenated some of the classic tunes of yesterday. Showing the utmost respect for the artists, that are still with us and the ones that have past on. Reminding us where today's music comes from, using his very powerful baritone to tenor voice. Here are just a few of the songs he grew up listening to. BIO - BILL'S been singing along time but has just recently gotten serious. Coming out of high school BILL was the lead singer of the Fabulous Olympics out of BOSTON MA. Later he sang for his church choir, he later entered and won talent competitions all over NEW ENGLAND. Every where he sang audiences were at awe, giving him standing ovations they love the oldies, do-whop, soul, r&b and rock he sings. From teenagers to baby boomers to people in their eighties they love his unique style and the way he croons to the songs in this album. Being an independent artist it was very hard getting the musicians and backup singers all at the studio at the same time. This album was two years in the making. Each song took almost 2 mos. To record and on several occasions he gave up and called it quits. But people inside and outside the music business kept pushing him on and it paid off, this is a great, great album. BILL's voice is spectacular, the choices of songs are excellent and he has a tremendous delivery, some say this album brings back wonderful memories, others say (especially) the ladies that some of the songs gave them goose bumps. YOU HAVE GOT TO HEAR THIS ALBUM. Gaining popularity on the east coast this CD will easily move across the country and across the world. Listen to some of the sound clips here on this site and you will want this CD. BILL is a new artist doing old school. Once a big label or recording CO. Hears his voice and this album they will want to sign him before some one else does, because BILL IS DESTINED TO BE 'BEST NEW ARTIST' AT NEXT YEARS GRAMMYS.
