Sleeping Bill is a product of realization; the sonic manifestation of positive universal energies converging to create a truth that is common to all things, but at the same time hints at the spontaneous and mysterious elements just outside (and within) all humanity.
Beginning at Berklee College of Music in Boston in 1998, those who would become Sleeping Bill formed under the guise of an all-improvised avant funk quartet called Shedhopper. As keyboardist Jay Lesage, bassist David Sheaffer, and guitarist Steve Podgorski defined their musical horizons together in this project, vocalist/songwriter Sanford Harty was crafting a special blend of folk/rock influences with his unique and highly emotional voice into songs of enormous strength and integrity. As these efforts continued, a bridge was forming between the soulful sounds of Sanford's compositions and the spacecraft that was Shedhopper. As this convergence of styles evolved, the blossoming group took up residence in a large red house known affectionately as Shedhopper Manor, where a studio and permanant practice installation allowed for maximum creative potential and growth. It was then that drummer and Berklee grad Steve Tyk completed the Sleeping Bill lineup with his inherent musical sense and powerful technique.
Since then, Sleeping Bill has done multiple studio recordings, as well as performances in Boston clubs and colleges. Having archived days worth of improvised jams, 'Bill' continues to hone a very special connection between songcraft and instrumental abandon, providing exhilarating and uplifting live shows as they move forward in a dream of spreading the light of sound to as many places as possible.
