Welcome to Bill Sparkman.com, home of Bill Sparkman Music and Spirit Wind Productions, my Corporation founded in 2011 as a small Independent Music Business dedicated to Entertaining, Songwriting, and a few other creative projects.
I am a solo performer, which I equate to being a vocalist and a one man band operating without a net. Without a band or orchestra backing me up, there is no place to hide. Each time I sit down and pick up my guitar to play, depending on the mood of the song, I may use a homemade drum for rhythym, and I will sometimes put a harmonica on to add a small amount of extra vibration to the music. I've chosen to never use computerized electronic effects or pre-recorded recordings that would allow me to lip sink songs.
During my 1- 3 hour performances, I “cover” Classic Rock, Country, Blues, and Easy Listening music, which was written by the songwriters who impacted the era of exceptional music of the 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s music, also known in many circles today as Americana.
My venues include Happy Hours, Private Parties, and Special Events.
As a member of ASCAP, I support the creative works of Songwriter’s Copyrights, and while I do cover their songs, I don’t sell cd’s containing their intellectual property!
As a business man, I believe that Venue Owners/Managers of bars/restaurants, and Host/Hostesses of Private Parties/Special Events, deserve to know what their customers or guests will be listening to, before making an entertainment decision, I'm providing samples of the genres I play below. This allows my potential clients to "listen before they buy", at their own leisure.
Select from the Classic Rock, Blues, Country, and Easy Listening Genres below to hear my musical product.
I also preview my music on You Tube, by typing in Bill Sparkman Music.
