Sons of Bill is a five-piece alt-country rock band from Charlottesville, Virginia featuring brothers James, Sam and Abe Wilson, as well as Seth Green and Todd Wellons. The band began pre-production work on their new album in the Spring of 2010. In December 2010 they entered Sound of Music Studios with David Lowery of 90's alt-rock band Cracker producing and John Morand engineering. In March 2011 the band initiated a fan-funded campaign through the innovative website Kickstarter to help offset recording and production costs. The campaign was a tremendous success, hitting it's $20,000 goal in just over 24 hours and eventually doubling that goal in the month it was active. The band continued working at Sound of Music, in addition to returning to PLYRZ Studios to work with producer and mixer Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty), and recording at Mission Sound Studios in Brooklyn, NY. Join Sons of Bill for their CD Release Party for their new album titled Sirens on March 30th at Neighborhood Theatre!
