Bill Brimer is a singer-songwriter from Dallas, Texas. His sparse and focused sound draws from the traditions of country and folk music. His songs focus on the struggles of damaged characters and sometimes include paranormal elements. The stories balance the sorrowful with the hopeful while exploring themes of love, mortality, addiction, and politics. Three classic examples of singer-songwriter influences are Hank Williams, Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt. His work has been compared to modern songwriters such as Jason Isbell, The Civil Wars, Gillian Welch and John Moreland.
In addition to the eighteen songs he’s recorded and released since 2018, he is working on a ten song concept album tentatively title “A Genealogy of Ghosts”. It is expected to be released before the end of 2019. He writes and records in his studio, Rising Highway, based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. His team includes producer Garth Orr, multi-instrumentalist Brian Douglas Phillips, and mastering engineer Pete Lyman of Infrasonic Mastering. He continues to book performances throughout Texas and Oklahoma as well as Nashville and New York City. He frequently performs at coffee shops, bars, night clubs, events, festivals, house shows, and any other place that welcomes authentic original roots music.
