About Bill Griese
Nashville-based Bill Griese writes and performs original music that is packed with feel and heartfelt lyrics. Bill’s smooth voice and laid-back approach often lead to comparisons to the great James Taylor. His pop-folk/Americana blend is both familiar and fresh.

Bill has two original CDs, “For This Day” and “Too Long Coming,” and several singles available on iTunes – including the emotional father-daughter song “On Three” and his fun release “Taylor Swift’s Ex!” His 2012 single “Zoom” was featured in a national television commercial. In 2013—in a major departure from his usual fare—Bill wrote and released a high-energy football song called “R U Ready,” featuring a guest appearance by NJ rapper Heathen. The song has been featured on ESPN, as well as in college and NFL stadiums. Bill’s 2013 wedding song, “I Will, I Do,” was praised by Contemporary Bride Magazine and is being embraced by brides and grooms and wedding professionals nationwide.


About Bill Maier
Bill Maier writes lyrics that touch the heart, …melodies that stay in your head.” Newsday called him “a songwriting sharpshooter…one of New York’s best kept musical secrets.” After garnering a large following and releasing two critically acclaimed CD’s with his band in New York, Maier headed to Nashville at the urging of hit songwriter/teacher Hugh Prestwood after taking his course in Advanced Songwriting at The New School in Manhattan. Since moving to Music City, Maier has released three more CD’s of his own, and tours in support of them, as well as playing regularly at local Nashville clubs including the famed Bluebird Café.

His songs have been featured on the TV show “Victorious,” on Nickelodeon, and in the movie “The Good Dad.” He has also had a handful of songs in independent films, and several songs featured in Tommy Hilfiger stores nationwide. Maier was a two-time finalist in the CMT/NSAI Songwriting Contest, and his song “Could Be” took an astonishing 2nd place out of more than 20,000 entries in the Billboard Songwriting Contest.
Maier has had songs recorded by an eclectic assortment of singers over the years, from country artists Billy Dean and Kaitlyn Baker, to legendary doo- wop group Randy and The Rainbows, Detroit bluesman Randy Brock, indie alt-rocker Michelle Hemmer, and a crop of up and coming indie artists as well.
