May 30, 2017

With all the life changes of the past year, my musical focus has been mostly the piano, thanks to the encouragement of a friend, and supposedly I have a 40-minute private solo piano performance slated this summer. But lately I've picked up the guitar and have written 3 new songs over the past couple months that I can hear begging, like children, to be recorded, giving no thought to the practicalities, namely monetary, emotional, and time expense. We shall see. Between these, all the piano music, and some full scale instrumental music, we shall see...

Future projects - March 17, 2017

Well Sharra says I should do a solo piano album, just as a solo bill gillham album. While it's true I have a lot of solo piano music written that I enjoy playing at home and for friends, I think I would like to do an album that included both solo piano music and full scale instrumental music.

Thieves' Kitchen - October 2, 2015

My friends 'Thieves' Kitchen', of whom Phil and Amy guested on our last album (the summery one), have just released 'The Clockwork Universe', their 6th and finest album. This album is absolutely phenomenal. I dare you to buy it, crank it up where you can really listen to it, and not say 'wow!!' a bunch of times.

Through The Cave - June 14, 2011

Not music related, but Bill's book 'Through The Cave' has been submitted for publishing and will be available over the next couple weeks. It is listed as sci-fi, but its really a mix of many genres - some action, adventure, young adult, fantasy, romance, mystery and sci-fi all rolled into one novel. Some musical references are cited as some of the different characters have different musical tastes.

July 21-Through The Cave is now available through Amazon Kindle and a few e-book sites. Barnes & Noble coming evidently. It is under the name 'Wilbert Gillham' as there is already an author named Bill Gillham, who writes childrens and/or religious books.
