ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bowman is a singer/songwriter creating and performing original pop/rock.

With this album Bowman proves himself to be a multifaceted artist as he composed all of the songs and handles guitar, bass and vocal duties.

The recording lineup for Believe was completed by John Sands, Larry Finn and Nick Hoffman on drums, and Zoux, who also co-produced the CD with Bowman, on keyboards.

Believe is comprised of two different recording sessions.

The first resulted in a six song EP that was released last year.

Bowman then went back into Wellspring Sound Studio in Concord, MA to record the songs that completed the album, including "Waiting for a Better Day," and the opening track, "Tear My Heart Right Out." Billy Bowman originally hails from Maryland and came to Boston to attend the Berklee College of Music.

After two years at Berklee, he started performing in the T stations of Boston.

The subway was surprisingly kind to him as he now has countless fan signatures on the lyric books that he carried with him.

He recalls the experience fondly noting that, " it was nice to see music breaking through boundaries, where all kinds of people were into it." That's when Lynda Morgenroth from the Boston Globe noticed him.

She described Bowman as "progressive rock with a soulful stab of ricochet poetry." Later he studied with renowned vocal coach, Mark Baxter.

It was through Baxter that Bowman discovered he could sing effectively and with great emotion without hurting his voice.

From there, he began performing in nightclubs around Boston with various bands backing him up, including the Innocents.

After only one performance at the Hard Rock Café Matt Scencio raved that he has, "a dynamic and soulful sound, check'em out!" Bowman has gained attention from the press, including Steve Morse of the Boston Globe who called him one of the up-and-coming headliners in Boston, and attracted a loyal local following with his energetic live performances.

The album really showcases his talent for writing well-crafted pop/rock songs.

I can't get enough!!!
My Believe CD is listened to so often I think I have worn it thin! I feel the words in my heart and soul as I listen to Bowman play. I can connect with the words in each song as some of them remind me of past life experiences I have had. It also makes me wonder what the author felt when he wrote these songs. I love this CD and CAN'T GET ENOUGH of Bowman! I want more!

Great, singing, playing, writing, and producing. I loved it!
I loved it. It has a good mix of songs, that are sung so well. I love the raspy, soulful voice. The songs really hit home to me in the situations in my life. I think, TIME is very much about this time we are living in. I love, I REMEMBER, it reminds me of a situation I have with a sick relative. POSSIBILITIES is very uplifting in the uncertainty of the times we live in. TEAR MY HEART RIGHT OUT, certainly gives voice to the disaster we have just lived through. It seems that BOWMAN has his finger on the pulse of the needs of the music listener. I can't say enough good things about this CD, and this talented artist, who sings, writes, plays, and arranges his own music! It is a winner!

Believe is the best CD I've purchased in YEARS!
Every song on BELIEVE offered the listener something new - the depth of the vocals, the songwriting was masterful and the tunes were catchy. I can't take it out of my CD player! I hope to catch this band live, if I am in the Boston area. They should definitely be grabbed by a major label NOW!
