“Have you read the Odyssey? I haven’t read that book in years, How he killed off all her lovers, then he burst into tears.”Sons of Bill, “Bad Dancer”

“The most arresting band I’ve heard in years.” Garden and Gun

Bill Wilson is from central Virginia. He is professor emeritus of philosophical theology and southern
literature at the University of Virginia; a singer, songwriter, and a father of six. His three eldest sons, along with
long-time musical compadres Seth Green and Todd Wellons, started a rock band upon their return to Virginia, and
they called it Sons of Bill.

Having been voted the best band in Charlottesville for the last 4 years running, Sons of Bill grew beyond
being just Charlottesville’s best kept secret in 2012 with their third full-length album, Sirens. Produced by
fellow Virginian David Lowery (Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven) the album debuted #12 on Billboard among new artists and
garnered the band its first taste of critical acclaim for its mix of introspective lyricism and rock-and-roll
bravado. As one writer put it– “It’s like southern gothic arena rock… it somehow manages to be fatalistic and triumphant
at the same time.” With a live show known to evolve from acoustic ballads into sweaty stage dives, Sons of Bill has
always kept a grueling tour schedule on both sides of the Atlantic, sharing the stage with artists ranging from My
Morning Jacket to the Drive-By Truckers and playing coveted slots at Bonnaroo, ACL Fest, and SXSW.
