Bill Harley is a songwriter, storyteller, author, performing and recording artist.

With over thirty-five award-winning recordings and numerous books to his credit, his work honors the universal joys and hardships that all share.

“In slice of life vignettes that exude warmth, wit and wisdom, Harley uses a consummate storyteller’s toolbox of tone, voice, delivery, and pace, creating something palpable between himself and his listeners. Like in the old days of radio shows, where people sat around their consoles, you can see that he’s captured their imaginations.” – PARENTS Magazine
