ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Working the Long Game is not only the title of Bill Lloyd’s latest album but also the title of one of the songs on the album. “The song is a relationship song but it’s also about having patience, having faith that something better is around the corner. I feel like that’s the underlying theme for many of the songs on this record.”

Out of the twelve-tracks represented, ten of them are co-written and feature musical peers both younger and older. For the music fans who still read liner notes and know the names of the songwriters and players, this album features a treasure trove of collaborative writing and musical interplay. “The co-writers like Graham Gouldman (10CC), Freedy Johnston, Tom Petersson (Cheap Trick), Aaron Lee Tasjan, Buddy Mondlock and Scot Sax (Wanderlust) are all great record-makers on their own and it was great to get to work with them all. Tom Petersson adding his bass to the track of “Yesterday” definitely took it up a notch or five. I also have some long-time friends I co-wrote with. For me it’s a very satisfying batch of recordings and I hope that’s easy to hear”.

Lloyd has a fan base following his solo records, but is also a songwriter, musician and producer having “worked the long game” in Nashville for over 30 years. Often remembered as half the country hit-duo, Foster & Lloyd, Lloyd has also worked for RCA Records, The Country Music Hall of Fame and the musical director for the First Amendment Center’s Freedom Sings program.
As a guitarist and singer, he’s made guest appearances on records by Ray Davies of The Kinks, Glenn Tilbrook from Squeeze, Marshall Crenshaw, Buck Owens & Ringo Starr, Steve Earle. Steppenwolf and many more. As a producer, Lloyd has worked with the legendary Carl Perkins, Sweethearts of the Rodeo and MTV indie-rockers, The Secret.
Lloyd is also an award winning songwriter who’s cuts range from Trisha Yearwood and Martina McBride to Cheap Trick, Hootie and the Blowfish, Poco and many more.
