With one foot in folk and the other in rock, Bill Price is a singer-songwriter who performs both solo and with his band—performing for intimate house concerts or outdoor festivals alike. His recordings have been played on radio stations around the U.S., Canada and Europe.
Bill Price Brief Bio
Bill Price is a singer-songwriter based in Indianapolis, Indiana. While Price sees songwriting, recording and performing as all having importance, he admits that the idea of creating something original is what drives him forward.
Price says he was always drawn to the songwriting aspect of music. “I don’t know if it was the realization that I was always going to be just an average guitar player or the fact that I always have an opinion that got me headed in the songwriting direction, but for whatever reason, I just got that fire. I was inspired by certain music to try and do a similar thing, but as I’ve gotten older, what inspires me just as much are non-musical ideas and experiences.” Price continues, “I’m just fascinated with the entire creative process—the inspiration, writing, arranging, recording and performing of songs and how that process is connected to life itself.” Price says that he’s always tried to evolve. “I think trying new things is critical for any type of artist in order to continue to grow.”
Price has released four full-length albums, three EPs and two CD singles to date, with several more projects in the works. His most ambitious project is I Can’t Stop Looking at the Sky, which, in addition to two full-length albums, includes a personal journal and a book of short stories, poems and essays. All are housed in an elaborate package designed by Price, who is also a graphic designer.
Kicking Angels (a four-song EP of all original material) is his most recent release. Bill Price releases have been met with positive reviews, especially in Europe. His music has also received airplay in Europe in addition to U.S. college and independent radio.
In 2010 Price began to expand his performing area beyond his native Indiana, playing regional shows around the Midwest. He has toured the American Northwest seven times as well as playing a few shows in Canada. He performs in solo, duo and trio formats as well as with a full band for intimate house concerts or outdoor festivals alike.
