Think About It

Fleetwood Mac outtakes would be hits for lesser bands.

This one has a hint of Linda and Richard Thompson. I'm sure they could relate.

Down Short

The Down CD Release approaches! Here is another promo video to entice you.

We still need to reach the All-or-Nothing Kickstarter goal, so if you can, please pre-order your copy before the deadline. All who pre-order the CD get free admission to the CD Release Party on June 1.

Get Down with Billy D: CD Release Show

To celebrate the release of my eight CD, Down, we'll be holding a one-time-only concert on Friday, June 1, at the The Pat Connolly Tavern in Saint Louis. The band will be myself on guitar, with help from Micah Johnson on bass, and Jim Warchol on drums. This will be the official debut of these songs. These guys laid the foundation for the biggest, phattest tracks on the album.

All attendies will receive a copy of the CD with admission. Those who ordered an advance copy of the CD from the Kickstarter campaign will enter for free.

Please go to the Facebook Event and click GOING. See you there.

Applesauce (solo acoustic)

On this version of the song, “Applesauce (Always Hungry)”, I play solo. On the Down CD, it's a multi-vocal extravaganza. Joining me on lead and/or backing vocals are Frantz Bostick (aka Franz Bee), Matt Kaden, David Taylor, Allie Taylor, and Kate Lovelady. The rhythm section is myself along with Jim Warchol and Micah Johnson.

Please choose to support this project to secure your advance copy! Thanks.

New CD on the way: Down

Hey y'all! I'm finishing up production of my eight solo CD, called Down. It's a follow-up to my bouncy seventh release, Innocent Sin. This is an appeal for support for production costs, but you should see it as an opportunity to get your copy first.
As always, if features musicians from the Saint Louis community, with a few guests from other places. One unexpected guest is Matt Kaden, formerly of Boston's Soothing Sounds for Baby. He plays drums and sings a bit.
I'm excited to announce that the visual artist for the actual CD cover is Tom Moore. The CDs will be printed in Digipack format, rather than the usual jewel case.
So order your copy in advance now!

Billy's Books 14 - Seabiscuit

Another book review. My friend Chuck leant me Seabiscuit. It took me months to read, because I kept distracting myself with other books. But finally, here is my scatter-brained review, in which I contend with Spring winds.
