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
