Music Style: Piano Pop-Rock
Bill Parton Trio are William Parton (Vocals & Piano), Jeremy Martin (Bass) and Andrew Partington (Drums). The band hails from the city of Adelaide, South Australia. While there is no clear box to define the trio’s unique genre and sound, the lads classify their music as ‘Piano Pop-Rock’. To paint a picture, try and imagine the simplicity and catchiness of The Beatles, combined with Coldplay-like chords and melodies, the impressionism of Jeff Buckley and Radio Head, along with a dash of the relaxed chilled-out mood and atmosphere that Zero 7 are notorious for being able to create.
The trio are very proud to have released their self titled debut EP on Friday 2nd August 2013. The EP follows the successful release of singles ‘Going Away’ and ‘Falling For You Again’ which are featured on the EP. ‘Going Away’ debuted at No.10 on Amrap AirIt’s Great Southern Charts, qualified as a semi finalist in the 2013 Unsigned Only Global Songwriting Competition and spent six weeks in the Westsidewill.com Unsigned Artist Top Ten. ‘Falling For You Again’ was featured on Home Brew Radio, made the Three D Radio Top 20+1 and won best new track in Sonya Feldhoff’s ‘new music’ competition on 891 ABC Adelaide. The video clips for both singles have been nominated as finalists for the 2013 MusicOz Awards and between the two of them have accumulated over 95,000 YouTube views! The EP itself since being released has received incredibly generous amounts of community radio and street press support, has been playlisted nationally on ABC stations and charted as high has No.8 (so far) on the Three D Radio Top 20+1.
The band’s extensive festival record includes ‘Music In The Gardens’, ‘Sea & Vines’, ‘Cellar Door Sessions’, ‘Copper Cove Marina’, ‘NATUZZI’, ‘A Day On The Grass’, ‘Whitmore Square Arts Fair’, ‘Crush Festival’, ‘Hoot!’ and many more! The band has also made an appearance at the 2010 EMERGENZA World Band Competition and also qualified to the finals of the 2010 AACA National University Band Campus Competition.
