Downhome music from Downriver
Downriver Wayne County resident Bill Bynum writes hardcore country and bluegrass songs steeped in the music his Southern-migrant parents brought to Detroit. Bill was recently profiled by the Associated Press, and both his calendar and the venues he plays have been growing more crowded lately. "My music is kind of a Southern roots-based acoustic music, but I feel like I am very hard to box into a category,'' he says. "There's more emotional content to my music than probably most people's.'' It's the truth! With songs both traditional and original, and a sound that's at once as comfortable as old jeans and as fresh as a new blade of grass, Bill Bynum & Co. is a band that’s easy to love and hard to quit. Come check out Bill's new band, featuring stringmaster Drake Lolley, bassist Scott Kendall, and fiddler Hessie Mae Hasheian!
