Bill Mcvail - Walk to the Light #Flyah


After years of low-fi, one-man band home recordings, a career change - and a mandated "garden leave" by his prior employer - gave Bill the time and motivation to write and record his debut EP, appropriately titled "Garden Leave" in the spring of 2015.  The EP covered a wide range of musical styles, from the progressive rock of the single "Breathe" to the uptempo alt-country "Redemption".  While Bill did rejoin the workforce later in 2015, he continued to work on refining his musical voice - as much as time and bandwidth would allow.

Bill found inspiration for his second EP, Walk To The Light, from the events surrounding the 2016 presidential election.  Frrom the rage and anger of a nation being pulled apart at the seams (Night Is Coming) to the solemn and hopeful post-election title track, the songs reflect a perspective of a person who has experienced many things, and is still looking to make sense of the world around him.

a nation divided.  no time to enjoy life.  world coming down all around us.
just walk to the light.
the inspiration for this album primarily came from the recent election, but the other songs have a message too. don't miss life.  stay engaged.
thanks for listening.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around
