Support Bill's New CD on Kickstarter!

"Play On" is an original (mostly acoustic) CD with some of my favorite tunes that I, and Ruth and I, have written together.

We're raising funds to be able to print up copies of a new CD (PLAY ON). Its already recorded, and artwork is done... We're excited about these 11 new original tunes, and cant wait for you to hear them.....So we need a minimal amount of funds to press and nationally promote this project.... I really want to be able to play live for any fans anywhere, and this will help make that economically possible....Thank you all very much....peace....BC

Los Angeles Film Festival includes Bill Carter's award-winning video for "Anything Made of Paper" directed by Brandon Ray & Pat Kondelis

"'Anything made of paper' was what visitors were allowed to bring Damien Echols in prison, yet Carter's song - which played over the closing credits of 'West of Memphis' - focuses on everything else the falsely accused prisoner received in time: life, freedom, love, and dignity." - "Anything Made of Paper" - Top 50 Songs of 2013 - American Songwriter
