From the beautiful West Coast of Canada comes this extraordinary quintet, renowned among folk music fans of all ages for their instrumental virtuosity, lush vocal arrangements, exuberant live performances, evocative songwriting, and refreshingly innovative interpretations of traditional tunes from around the globe.
In 2004, with the release of their stunning third CD, Let Em Run, The Bills secured their place as one of the most inventive and talented acts on the North American and Western European folk music scene. Let Em Run has generated enormous praise from critics and fans alike, and was nominated for the 2005 Canadian JUNO award for Roots/Traditional Album of the Year. Fans have been waiting a long time a new CD and the aptly named Yes Please is stunning return for the band.
Drawing musical inspiration from a broad range of North American traditions, a melange of European stlyings, rhythms of Latin America, and melodies of the wandering Romany peoples, The Bills have forged a musical style all their own that transcends musical boundaries and defies simple categorization. With three main writers in the band, The Bills have developed a glorious and growing repertoire of songs that speak of their own part of the world.
