Take plenty of heartache, two near death experiences, a whole lotta "backroadin" therapy, a couple of bar scars, the perfect farmer's tan, combine it with meaningful lyrics, a soulful voice, solid guitar work and you've got Bill Rice. He is truly one of the brightest new stars in the Texas music scene.

Bill Rice was born and raised in rural Oklahoma. After high school, he attended Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK.. He worked as a bouncer at the world famous Tumbleweed Dancehall, where he got to meet some of his country music idols. The time spent working at the "Weed" had a profound effect on his decision to withdraw from college just shy of having a degree and pursue his dream of being a country musician.

Bill moved to Oklahoma City and started a band that toured a four state area. After five years of leading the group, he decided to make a move to Nashville or Austin in search of recognition for his original music and with the flip of a coin, made Austin his new home. Since moving to Austin in 2000, he has fronted a popular country band, co-written with some of his idols and recently put together a very talented group of guys to form what is now, the Bill Rice Band.

Bill has just finished recording his debut album that is set for a early September 2007 release.. His band is comprised of musicians that have traveled the world playing music for a living. Bill says, "I write real music for real people. Catch Bill Rice live to see what the buzz is all about..

Bill plays Original Texas Music. Some of his musical influences include: Merle Haggard, Keith Whitley, Walt Wilkins, Jimmy Lafave, Monte Montgomery, Mel McDaniel, Don Williams, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban

"Bill's record is top notch! His songs are great and his voice is as soulful as you will hear. The great production on this record adds to the high quality he was goin' for. "I'd Do It All Again" is as good a debut album as you will find in my opinion."- Kevin Fowler

"I was honored to sing on Bill Rice's record. His voice is as warm & open as the Texas plains. He writes & sings about real life, with a no-bullshit sensibility. It's going to be fun watching folks
get their ears on Bill."- Walt Wilkins

"Bill Rice's songs remind me of Dallas Frazer or Bob McDill. They're great songwriters too. And when I hear Bill sing, I think of Merle Haggard. That's about as good as it gets in my book."-Kent Finley (Songwriter/Owner-Cheatham St Warehouse)
