Bill Bates: Singer/Songwriter

Photo by Chele Willow


I am a Warwickshire based singer songwriter and I perform original songs in folk clubs and folk festivals. My songs are almost autobiographical, although I do tend to add on bits every now and again. I definitely won't let the truth get in the way of a good rhyme or story!

My songs are often about the ordinary things in life, such as disastrous family holidays in our little caravan, recycling, selling our children's toys at a car boot sale to pay the bills and a song about a Mars bar Party where people started to unexpectedly take off their clothes. Some of my songs are funny, other songs are serious; either way I hope you like them.

I would love it if you would link to me on Facebook so we can keep in touch.

I have a Double CD I sell at gigs but you can download these and lots of other songs here for free!

For gigs, bookings, or anything else please email: bill "at" billbatesmusic.co.uk  I hope to see you soon!
