Bringing It All Back Home
Hard Road Home, Bill’s most ambitious album to date, continues his signature Rock Americana style fusing memorably moving melodies and poetically inspired lyrics with soaring three-part harmonies and a rock-solid beat. In Hard Road Home, Bill has produced a truly inspiring album around a key universal theme: self-fulfillment is only achieved through hard work and perseverance. And each song on the CD speaks to one of the many challenges we all may face during our lives.
Whether it be the eternal quest for self-fulfillment (Still Running), the negativism of a toxic relationship (Heart Of Stone), staying positive in an increasingly negative world (If Only To Be Me), balancing the idealism of youth vs. the wisdom of old age (A Fool’s Heart Crying), celebrating true friendship in an isolated digital world (Call My Name) or remaining steadfast in the face of adversity (The Point Of No Return), Bill’s message is clear, “Whatever happens to the life you live you got to understand it’s all within your hands.”
The CD ends with Bill revealing his personal life’s quest... finding his true love, Lydia. Says Bill, “In the end it was a series of failed relationships that ultimately led me to Lydia, a union of total mutual respect and acceptance.” That is Bill’s uniquely personal message in Hard Road Home: “I’m not half the man I’d hope to be. And yet I’m still your number one.”
