So, it seems the other thread is not where you'll be talking!
Here's my question: During the writing process, do you have any sort of rituals that you have to do before you can properly get those creative juices flowing?
How do you over come writers block?

Haha, new thread!
So again my question is what has become of the finished songs (or unfinished songs) you created with tai over the last couple years for album number 4.

Well, as instructed ... Hello! :) First of all, you're brilliant, solo or not, and I love what I've heard so far, and can't wait to get Winds Will Change and Walk the Talk in the mail soon. As for questions, when was the moment you knew you wanted to be a musician? And will there be a meet and greet at the Tulsa show? I just bought my tickets. Me and my friend have been fans for years (I found We've Got a Big Mess on youtube about two months after you and the guys played at the Brady on the Sleeping with Giants tour. I was not a happy camper haha) and are so excited! Congrats to you for the great reviews so far!

What is your definition of a "good" song?


Oh, and do you have any plans to tour in Europe soon? (Cause it's about time you do) :)

Hi Bill!
First off, I am IN LOVE with Winds Will Change. It gets better every song omg :') Dig A Hole is my fave!

Second of all, I'm dying to know whether or not you have read the letter I gave you during your KL show... the one with the ermm 'envelope-ception' thing in a big brown envelope? It's okay if you havent though, I just want to know :)

Speaking of KL, any news on you coming down here in the very near future? Say this year?

Thanks! Love you through & through Mr. B.

Big fan of all your work. I was just wondering, are you a lyrics first or guitar first kind of writer?

I was just wondering if you have any plans to tour more in Canada? If you do, I would love it if you did a show somewhere in the province of Saskatchewan, and I know a lot of people who would also love to see you live! c:

When I have a song written going into the studio I'm usually pretty comfortable with performing a song once I've had a chance to sit with it. I prefer to do a "scratch" track the night before I really track it so I can properly emote and deliver the song the way it needs to be delivered.

William do you ever do meet and greets? Or do you just hang out with fans after shows? I would really love to meet you in San Diego!
