Bill Bynum - PIcks Guitar, Sings, Makes Stuff Happen

Although a Detroit native, Bill's musical roots are in the South. His parents migrated from Black Oak, Arkansas to work in Detroit's steel industry in the 1940s, bringing--like many others--their love for bluegrass and country music. Bill grew up listening to artists like Johnny Cash and Buck Owens on Detroit's country radio station, "The Big D."

Detroit rock drove Bill's early musical career. But in 1999, Bill turned on the radio and heard "Yours Forever Blue" by Steve Earle and the Del McCoury Band. From that moment on he found himself with a "nonstop desire to hear and play those songs."

Soon he was writing them too. Bill is a first-prize winner in the Metro Detroit Songwriting Showcase with his song "Lovin' You." He has collaborated with bluegrass legend Pete Goble, an International Bluegrass Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award winner. Bill lives for the joy of entertaining his audience. A true showman!
