Album Notes
"... [Bill's] songs of life and relationships and the journey into one's own soul will stick in your head and have you singing bits of them after the evening is over."

- Uncle Calvin's Coffeehouse

Bill Nash has been a musician all his life. He was a 5-year-old boy soprano, a 4th grade french hornist, a 15-year-old beginning guitarist, and a graduate of Bradley University's school of music, majoring in composition. Bill began writing music and lyrics in his early teens and his roots are firmly embedded in what is now known as the singer/songwriter acoustic genre. He has performed styles as diverse as rock 'n roll, fusion, country, polka, folk, and even old-time western music, ala the Sons of the Pioneers.

On "Runs With Scissors", Bill was delighted to be joined by the likes of Dana Cooper (harmonica), Chris Gage (honky tonk piano), Marsha Webb (classical piano), Denny Allen (bass guitar and recording engineer), and Don Conoscenti (practically everything, from wailing guitars to drum set to flute to dumbeck to metal chair!), and a very special group of 6 lady singers he affectionately calls "The RollAides" (referenced from his song, "She Rolls", for which they sang beautiful backup harmonies).

Bill has been invited to sing backup harmonies on mainstage at the Kerrville Folk Festival with the likes of Anne Hills, Tom Prasada-Rao, Michael McNevin, Josh White Jr, Bill Ward, and Albert & Gage.

There are those gifted few who draw you in with just a phrase. Bill Nash is one of those songwriters. Whether you are a songwriter or just someone who admires songwriters, you owe it to yourself to own a copy of this wonderful music. Bill is a gifted writer, a songwriter's songwriter, who graciously pours his life into yours, leaving you just a bit richer for knowing him. I have picked with Bill, and I will never forget the experience. Bill Nash is a treasure.

Bill sings a story with a strong, yet smooth, voice that puts the listener into
What a great compilation of music! The words stick with you long after your listen is over. The stories will strike a cord with any listener and the harmonies carry you through the CD on the back of a genuine songwriter whose storytelling voice draws the listener into the scene. My favorite time to hear this one; weekend mornings with coffee.
