I was born in Dothan Alabama and spent my first 16 years there before we moved to Florida. I got my first guitar (a Sears Silvertone) and amp when I was fourteen years old. I was already being influenced by Elvis, the Everly Brothers, Jerry Lee Lewis and many more. I don't think there's anyone that love's music more than I do. Of course I know some people would argue with that. Not only do I love country music, I also enjoy other genre's as well. Listening to my music samples will clearly show other influences but in my case, they have a country flavor. I'm happily married. My wife's name is Penny. Check out my website www.billcreel.com and sign the guest book. I also encourage you to rate my songs as feedback for me and others. You can purchase tracks from many places including here on Soundclick. I have written a lot of songs and I currently have two CD available. I do my own recording, producing and mixing in my digital studio. I appreciate everyone's interest in my songs. Pass the word around.
I play live as a one man band. I use backing tracks and play my guitar while singing the songs. I do enjoy being in front of an audience. It's always been that way for me.
I was influenced early on by Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Everly Brothers, Chuck Berry, and later by the Eagles, Jimmy Buffett, Van Morrison, Three Dog Night, CCR, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Vince Gill, Don Williams, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Alison Krauss, and many others.
I enjoy writing music and recording it.
