In addition to producing solo CDs which are an eclectic blend of jazz, funk, orchestral and world fusion, he is also the keyboardist for the jazz/rock fusion project The Odd Get Even (featuring Ike Turner alumni drummer Bill Ray).
Over the years, Bill has been the keyboardist for a variety of bands including The Thomas Connor Band (rock project featuring Blood Sweat & Tears singer Thomas Connor), Zindu (improvisational groove fusion), Will Sumner's Tropic Zone (latin influenced jazz), and Willovalot (smooth jazz and funk).
From the early 80s through the mid-90s, he was keyboardist for Crystal, a band with whom he spent twelve years touring throughout the western United States, Alaska and Japan. During that time he opened for artists such as Kansas, Steelheart, Joan Jett, Steppenwolf, Firehouse, The Romantics, Pat Travers, and many others. The Crystal album Collection was among the top ten selling melodic rock CDs for German distributor AOR Heaven in the year 2000.
Sitting somewhere between the more jazz fuelled side of Toto and the less obtuse output of Steely Dan, Reason's Edge prove to be a hugely engaging, and gently challenging prospect. - Steven Reid for Sea of Tranquility
