BILL HAMMOND is a Minnesota-based guitarist and vocalist whose influences run the gamut from fingerstyle players and classical composers to blues wailers and country-style flat-pickers. He has played in groups and as a solo performer in his native Wisconsin and throughout Minnesota, where he has lived since 1981. His "Skywriter" CD was released in the fall of 2000, and has earned considerable airplay on public radio and Internet venues. "Speechless," an all-instrumental recording that features six different guitars and six different tunings, was released in July 2004.
