Why this name?
All my bands have been named River.
Do you play live?
Yes, mostly coffeehouses, but I'm looking forward to Xcel Center sometime.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
A lot.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Probably. It depends.
Band History:
"Cat Went Blind" is essentially a studio recording. The musicians are locally renowned and highly respected friends of Bill's, brought together at Perfect House Studios in River Falls, WI to record all of the basic tracks but one in three days. Of course, several other friends were brought in to record various over-dubs.
