Album Notes
Hector, a two-time winner of East Coast Rockers “Best Guitarist” award, has more than 40 years of live performances, including two appearances at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame American Masters Series. “The Fire Within,” Hector’s 14th album, features a supporting cast of a dozen musicians on instruments ranging from harpsichord and violin to piano and horns to Hector’s more familiar styling of bass, drums and guitar.

Primarily recorded at Lake House Studio in Asbury Park and Jankland in Belmar, “The Fire Within” features three new Hector original singles.

 “Fake I.D” is a sly and humorous ode to taking life as it comes and letting the chips fall where they may. This track also features Billy’s signature killer slide guitar work with a sparkling assist from Mickey Melchiondo on guitar. Tim Tindall plays bass and Sim Cain on drums.

 “Broken Down” is a story of personal renewal in the aftermath of a disaster featuring Suzan Lastovica on backing vocals, Arne Wendt on harpsichord and Dave Rimelis on violin.

 “Step It Up” is a straight up party stomper featuring a guitar conversation between Hector and Bob Bandiera urging us all to channel the true spirit of rock and roll and let the music set you free. Assisting in that goal are horn players Tom LaBella and Steve Jankowski. Tim Tindall on bass; Sim Cain on drums.

 “Memory Motel” is a cover of the Rolling Stones hit song telling of a long lost love. Hector’s treatment is more guitar driven than the original, and features Suzan Lastovica on backing vocals, Glenn McClelland on piano, Sim Cain on drums; and Tony Tino on bass.

“The Fire Within” is a promising glimpse into the next chapter in the career of Billy Hector as he continues to explore new musical paths now and in the future. For a calendar of Hector’s upcoming events, more background and information on Hector, visit him on the web at
