Raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, Bill began playing piano when he was 7 years old. He so fiercely wanted to learn his craft he often would trade his piano teacher yard work for lessons. His lessons continued until he was 14-years old. As a teen Bill continued to play without formal instruction, juggling many hours of practice daily with his love of sports. Eventually Bill began composing his own music, with influences including the likes of John Tesh, Yanni, and David Lanz in addition to the famous classical composers of previous centuries.
He dreamt that one day he would be able to perform his works with the famous orchestras he grew up listening to, creating his own unique sound and style to be enjoyed throughout the world. Bill continued to excel in composing while attending college and graduating with a B.S in Exercise & Sports Science.
After college he began working as a loan consultant to finance his musical dreams. During this time, friends, family, coworkers and even his boss, all who had heard him perform, were persuading him to follow his dream of performing his music and sharing it with the world.
Bill currently resides in California and in early 2004, was introduced to Bob Ravenscroft of Vesper Records. After discussing Bill's vision and listening to his work a special relationship was born between Bill and Bob. Work began immediately, and about 1 year later (March 2005) Bill has released his first CD with his second in the works. Bill is currently touring malls in the Western United States and is looking forward to kicking off his US and Asian tour in late 2005.
