Bill Wilde


I'm sort of a retired musician, I played in local night clubs for a few years and then played in the church band for a few more years. I don't do any of that anymore but I still like to pick up my guitar about once a day. I enjoy all styles of music but my main genre would be "soft rock". From time to time I'll discover a melody or rhythm I like and record it. I also have a few home studio recordings I would like to share on Drooble. I might be interested in collaborating with someone of similar likes or styles.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is a great mystery. What is it about certain sound vibrations in the air that can reach my ear and create a mood? Why does it sound good or bad to me? Why isn't it all just noise? But certain note combinations, chord progressions, beats, all has the ability to resonate with the human soul.

What is your music dream?

When I was younger I may have thought about becoming musically successful. As I have grown older the odds of that really happening has changed my expectations. Now I just enjoy listening to a new song that strikes me or maybe an old song I forgot about. And maybe writing a #1 hit...

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Wow, what a question.....I think everyone would answer close to the same thing. World peace, food and shelter for everyone....and everyone has their own beach hurricanes.....

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Three Bells by the Browns or Young Love by Sonny James. Talk about giving away my age.....

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I don't really have a favorite favorite. When I was younger I was a Beatle fan. I liked Donovan, Crosby Stills Nash Young, Sting, the Doors, Led Zeppelin, James Gang,James Taylor, Carol King, many others. One of the newer ones would be Camila Cabello.....I like some classical music as well..

What inspires you to make music?

Listening to a really cool song.....

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Not so much a message but a "feeling". A mood, something that is relaxing or uplifting. Or maybe thought provoking....

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Ha ha! nervous......

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

It's a completely changed battle field. Computers, the internet, social media. On the one hand, it's easier for musicians to record their own stuff and get a decent sound. But also it's the same as always, trying to get that lucky break....

What do you think of Drooble?

I like Drooble, it's cool to share something I'm interested in with other musicians. You can make Drooble what you want it to be. If you work hard and use Drooble as a tool you may get ahead in your exposure. Or you can enjoy just sharing with other musicians, listening, collaborating, whatever

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Being a one man band trying to record all the different parts.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Not very often I'm afraid. Probably should .

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Well, observing the ones who have "made" it, it would be charisma, showmanship, natural talent,hard worker,lots of energy....

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

I've heard some pretty awesome artists on Drooble, but obviously, you've already heard of ever heard of JustinGuitar on youtube? He's pretty cool.....
