Bill Reid & The Fewer Sorrows Band

BILL REID likes to talk about himself in the third person. People hate that. He's been playing & writing music since before you were born. These albums are with his Fewer Sorrows Band; his solo performances are finger-style blues & Americana at places like Luckenbach, Austin's Cactus Cafe, and other listening venues in Texas, Nashville, and elsewhere.

When he's really lucky, Bill gets to play and record with some of the best musicians in the business (Bill Hullett, Glen Duncan, Clayton Ivey, Denis Solee, Tommy Wells, Dow Tomlin, Mike Douchette, Vicki Carrico, Etta Britt, Brian Collins, Eddy Anderson, Chris "Superman" Reeves, Ron Knuth, Tony "Little Sun" Glover, Christine Albert, Mike Blakely). They're usually loud enough to keep him from screwing it up.

Their 2010 album, A Place Inside My Heart, with his award-winning title song, was nominated for a Texas Music Award. The 2011 album, Country Blues and Story Songs, got two Texas Music Award nominations and Bill performed at the Awards. The 2012 CD, Songs for My Family, is full of original songs for and about children. The latest (2013) release from Bill and The Fewer Sorrows Band is Blues for Lost Dreams, with liner notes by Grammy(R) board member Christine Albert.
