This week, we meet Americana Folk and Country artist Bill Madison. Bill is quite the experienced musician, having worked in the Music Industry for 60+ years. Bill applies a DIY approach throughout his career. He has cleverly utilised the process of recording, producing and marketing his original music as an independent artist. Bill Madison has performed in Folk Music venues all over the world and now enjoys making music at home as a self-employed musician. Check out what Bill had to say and how he became the musician he is today below.


Hey Bill! Let us know a little bit about you.

My musical career spans more than 60 years. From performing in the Folk Music venues of Boston, New York City and Montreal during the 1960’s, to playing the ski resorts and honky tonks of Northern New England from the 1970’s to the 1990’s.
– 
In 1973, I released my first album called “Sunday Mornin’ Hayride”. That album has been
re-released by Riverman Records and Yoga Records. It was voted in the top ten retro re-issues for 2009 by the Acid Archives. In 1974, I formed Them Fargo Brothers which became New England’s Premier Country Rock Band. In general, I toured with the band until 1990.
I am currently writing and recording in my studio and marketing my music through my web site. My music is on Spotify, iTunes and other streaming sites. My music is available for licensing and is included in several licensing libraries such as Songtradr, Hummingbird Music and Audiosparx. I perform live streaming online, mainly on Street Jelly and Facebook Live.
