Strecker is a veteran of the rhythm rock / blue scene having toured with such acts as Asleep At The Wheel, Shawn Colvin and the Bill Strecker Band, sharing the stage with the likes of Jaco Pastorious, Steve Goodman, and Richie Havens, and working with legendary manager Albert Grossman (Bob Dylan, Todd Rundgren). On his recent solo effort â€˜Smoke & Cloudsâ€™, Strecker has created a record that comes from the soul and is winning over the Bob Seger, Neil Young and Tom Petty faithful. The current single â€˜Slow Down Darlinâ€™ has been making an impact at Americana & AAA radio and is now in rotation at over 30 stations, with the CD up to #185 on the AMA chart.
â€œâ€¦smart songs, tempered by living and still leavened by dreams. Theyâ€™re folk, rock and country, and theyâ€™re a welcome breeze for anyone who simply enjoys a good record.”
