Description: Poet, South African Singer-Songwriter, Storyteller, Weaver of Tall Tales and Short Home-Truths, layers his authentic contemporary Cape-Folk music with poetic lyrics of depth and intensity. His “Kaapse Mengsel” Style, written in a characteristic “Bredie” of English and “Kombuistaal” (the dialect of the Western Cape), provides a personal but universal insight into the not-so-ordinary lives of everyday people, drawing strongly on Myth, Mystery, Legend and Folk- Lore.
He subscribes strongly to the Ethics and Traditions of the Troubadours- Minstrels and Social Commentators; ranging from the Myths and legends in the Fireside Tales of Early Man, to the Welsh Bardic Tales, Scandinavian Sagas, and the Political Activists of the Middle Ages.
Bill freely admits to being a “KhakieBoer”- half Brit, half Boer- with all the tensions that such a blend suggests, but his Fireside Ballads and Torch-songs are more universal than any divisions that might be expected.
His collaboration with Chris Davidson, a Muizenberg-based Poet, Songwriter of Note, and Founder-member of the quirky “Lentil Collective”, gave birth to “Scarecrows in a Field”, producing two Critically well-received CDs to date.
Together, they are a Force to be reckoned with: their Work explores the Paradox of the Crow and the Dove, the Light and Dark, the Duality and Contrast
