Parade

Bill Phillippe

"It is --i believe you must know-- quite beautiful; touching; and with just enough people marching the route with you as to illuminate its perfect and essential nakedness.." - Joe Henry, Grammy Award Winning Producer

PARADE is the follow-up CD by San Francisco based guitarist and songwriter Bill Phillippe to his debut CD GHOSTS, the Roots Music Report’s #2 Acoustic Blues Record of 2015. On PARADE, Bill is stretching the conventional boundaries of acoustic blues and jug bands, by incorporating accordion, clarinet and stand-up bass to create a uniquely beautiful and haunting ensemble sound. The focus of PARADE is on Phillippe’s original songs, tales of love, loss and our journey through the PARADE of experiences that make up a life.

“This cat comes on like the real deal. As long as you like music that colors outside the lines, this is sure to drive you nuts" – Midwest Record

"Singer/songwriter, bluesman, folksinger, gospel singer and storyteller extraordinaire, Phillippe's work is a very diverse blending of styles for a sound that has a lot of that somewhat haunting sound that is common in the Mississippi delta." - Reflections in Blue

Ghosts

Bill Phillippe

Roots Music Report’s #2 Acoustic Blues Record of 2015!

“Bill Phillippe plays, sings and writes more like he’s from the Mississippi Delta or the Crescent City than the Bay Area. His guitar skills are especially fine, trotting out an array of greasy licks that sway and soar” RootsWorld.com
