ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Folk-n-Roller is lyrically driven, layered with humor and pathos, and showcases Bill’s total command of the guitar more than ever –– in choice of notes, dynamics, and creative improvisation, romping through a multitude of styles. Once again, he has produced the CD, played all the instruments, and written, arranged, recorded and mixed the songs himself. Grammy Award winner Don Grossinger (Brian Wilson, Rolling Stones, Shawn Colvin) did the mastering.

REVIEWS:
MuzikReviews.com (February 22, 2011) by Abbey K. Davis
“Folk-n-Roller perfectly describes the extraordinarily clever way Bachmann tells stories while playing complicated and interesting music at the same time... There’s simply no end to Bachmann’s unique way of talking, singing, and writing...
Bill Bachmann has delivered a near-perfect album that never disappoints or steers into anything less than what you’d hope for. You’ll do more than enjoy Folk-n-Roller - you’ll absolutely love it.”

Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange (March 24, 2011) by Mark S. Tucker
“Bachmann's nothing if not clever as hell…A master of the pun as well as a deft surgeon with words qua words… [Big World Out There] made me an instant fan; 2011's Folk 'n' Roller only reinforces that affinity…Too damn hilarious.”

Muse’s Muse Reviews (March 20, 2011) by Cyrus Rhodes
“…He’s definitely one of those guys that’s a whole lot of fun to listen to…Note for note, song for song, there isn’t really a weak piece on this entire catalog…What's even more impressive is how Bill Bachmann played all these instruments himself with no outside assistance…He’s infectious - & this CD will suck you in like a drug.”

Folkwords (March 8, 2011) by Tim Carroll, U.K.
“Bill Bachmann needs no comparison…razor-sharp lyrics and a satirical edge that takes no prisoners…another guitar and lyrics masterclass...songs that touch raw emotions…outstanding guitar work with super-slick changes of gears and styles…”

Wildy's World (April 12, 2011) by Wildy Haskell
“Bachmann continues to make magic in music on Folk-N-Roller. As songwriting goes, this is a 'WOW' moment… As a guitar player, there are few more accomplished than Bill Bachmann.”

Ariel’s Reviewyou.com (April 19, 2011) by Matt Warnock
“Is there anything Bachmann can’t do as a singer-songwriter?”

Ariel's Reviewyou.com (April 26, 2011) by Ronda Readence
"Folk-n-Roller is truly an album of fantastic songwriting and Bill Bachmann is a wordsmith of the highest order. This alone will attract a variety of listeners, but when you combine his original lyrics with his instrumental talent, you have a very well-rounded offering of 14 songs that range from extreme country, to folk, to jazz and blues. Bachmann is as diverse as he is talented and Folk-n-Roller is a delight to listen to. The feet will be tapping and the mind will quickly absorb the intellect of the lyrics. The humor found within the album is refreshing, but there are many pieces that are deep and thoughtful, with lyrics that will hit home in the hearts of many. Bachmann has successfully created a brilliant album that is perfectly well-balanced and wonderfully written."
