Spring Forward

by Bill Pound

“Spring Forward” is an instrumental based on electric guitar and flute leads. The composition leans towards jazz because of the chord usage but the strong beat is more pop/rock. The sound might remind you of Pat Metheny. Thanks, Bill

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Meet Bill Pound...
For Bill Pound, being born and raised in Macon, Georgia has had a profound influence on his musical upbringing. Macon’s heritage of musical diversity, from Little Richard to Otis Redding, to the Allman Brothers Band has inspired several generations. This is evident in the songs he has written, recorded, and released on CDs. Perhaps it is this heritage, coupled with many years of commitment to his art, that has made Bill the entertainer he is today. His years of touring experience allow him not only to sense a crowd’s desires, but also to give him the ability to respond. From hard rock-and-roll to soft country, both the extremes and the middle ground belong to Bill when he’s on stage.
The fact that Bill has opened for acts as diverse as Beach Boys, Billy Joe Royal, Classics IV, Doc and Merle Watson, Jimmy Buffet, Joe Cocker, Joe South, John Lee Hooker, Johnny Jenkins, Spyro Gyra, The Young Rascals and Wet Willie; and that he has performed with Count M’Butu, Jonathan Edwards, Greg Allman, Jimmy Hall, Lee Dorsey, Mickey Thomas (Starship & Elvin Bishop), Richie Havens & Ron Blair (bass w/Tom Petty) bears further witness to his flexibility and broad appeal.
Groups that Bill has been in are "The Charades," "The Boogie Chillun’,” "Orgon Zable," "Uncle Pleasant," "The Macon Jammers," "Rogers, Pound, and Greene," "Delta," "Pound and Rogers," "Stewart-Tussing" & “Caroline Aiken/Jaimoe.” Early on at Capricorn Recording Studios he recorded flute with members of “Iron Butterfly.”
A turning point in Bill’s career came when he recorded "Flute Music For Relaxation." Not only was a different avenue opened up, but it took Bill in a more spiritual direction. This sets the stage for more instrumental works as he brings all the tools necessary to express his musical vision, both through his adaptations of other artists’ songs as well as his own extremely accessible catalog of original material.
At this point Bill’s Original CDs include “Child Of The Wind,” (southern rock & country ballads}, "Flute Music For Relaxation," (a spontaneous, flow of consciousness recording), "Spirit Gift," (10 beautifully mellow instrumentals on guitar and silver flute), "Song of Life," (10 vocal tunes backed by acoustic guitar), "Music Is A Treasure," (14 upbeat full-production songs including two instrumentals), "Magic Garden," (with World Music group Sapien).
Cover CDs include “Bill Pound Oldies I,” “Bill Pound Oldies II,” “Bill Pound & Fiddlin’ Red-Live At The Sidebar,” “Bluesy,” “Flute Instrumentals,” “Guitar Instrumentals” and "Spirit Of Christmas," with jazz pianist Rebecca Windham.
Some notable recent appearances for Bill have been Centennial Olympic Park (Atlanta), Spoleto Piccolo Festival (Charleston, S.C.), New Year’s Eve Jam and live radio performance hosted by Max and Judy Fowler (Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia), a writing/ performing escape to Akumal, Mexico, and numerous appearances with Sapien (Frank Chambliss and Count M'Butu) in Atlanta area schools booked by "Young Audiences."
Bill expresses his considerable talents through a variety of voices…from electric, acoustic or slide guitar, silver and Native American flutes, harmonica, and vocals. Love of music, family and friends, nature, and living life and a strong faith are the forces that inspire, motivate and guide Bill. Whatever the occasion may be, look forward to an exciting live performance from Bill Pound.
