A life-long fan of Al Jolson since the age of ten, Bill also enjoys the sounds and styles of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin.
Among his favourite female singers he includes Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Judy Collins and Judy Garland.
In the world of contemporary entertainers, he admires Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Tony Babino, Katherine Jenkins and considers Matt Munro to be the best British vocalist of all time!
Bill’s personal song favourites reflect the influences of many singers and a broad range of musical eras.
Whether he is swaying to the sounds of the old Black Minstrel Days; crooning to lilting ballads of the 30s &40s, steppin’ out to the tempo of the 50s or intoning the lament of an old Scottish melody, each song takes the listener on a personal journey.
