Born in Greenville, Ohio, Bill Harley is a two-time Grammy® award-winning artist who uses song and story to paint a vibrant and hilarious picture of growing up, schooling and family life. Recipient of the lifetime achievement award from RI Council for the Humanities "for building community; promoting our common humanity; and encouraging lifelong learning, exploring and growing", Bill tours nationwide as an author, performing artist and keynote speaker.
Bill began singing and storytelling in 1975 while still in college. His work has influenced a generation of children, parents, performing artists and educators. Bill's songs are joyous, direct and honest, his stories are filled with the details of daily life - all told, written and sung from his slightly off-center point of view.
