Bill Starks

An award-winning singer-songwriter from the Washington DC area, Bill Starks is also a member of the popular Americana group Ruthie and The Wranglers, and has also
been an in-demand sideman for several other groups.

The 2015 CD "I See Trouble" won Bill a Songwriter of the Year award from the Washington Area Music Association (WAMA,) and includes the original studio recording of the tune "300 Miles From Memphis to New Orleans", which won WAMA song of the year.

A second solo CD "Do You Hear Me Now", released in 2019, is a collection of brand new recordings of some of Bill's early original tunes, performed by the reunited group of musicians who originally brought them to life.

Over the years, DC music fans have enjoyed seeing Bill perform with a variety of bands in the mid-Atlantic region, such as Junior Cline and the Recliners, Cathy Ponton King and others.
