Most notably known for his work as a webmaster and graphic designer, Bill spends most of his work life at his printshop, EcoPrint, in beautiful downtown Grand Rapids. BC's longstanding passion for music has re-emerged in a recent prolific songwriting period. As Earthwork Music’s General Manager since 2009, Bill has worked with a large group of mostly Michigan-based musicians, providing support and organizational assistance in a myriad of DIY projects, from album packaging design to event and tour management. Bill's web design venture, Rough Draft Designs, has built sites for musicians and bands, schools, and restaurants, and is most well-known their online volunteer management system, Help the Herd.
For many years Bill has been the man behind the curtain, working with countless musicians, building and managing infrastructure for events, and helping Earthwork Music function as an organization. Now, as the curtain rises, please help me welcome Bill's newest project - stepladders.
The Earthwork Music collective believes in the intrinsic and historical power of music to raise both community and self-awareness and serves to facilitate and encourage original music in the state of Michigan and beyond.
