(this session was recorded in Toronto, Ontario by BeeHive Productions during the 2013 Folk Alliance International Conference, February 2013)
Adrian Dolan of The Bills describes the band's sound as a "kitchen acoustic, global jam exploration" of a variety of Americana, roots and world music influences. The Bills are known for their improvisational, party band style - a mix that pulled in fans even before the group from western Canada started focusing on their own original music. The songs they performed for Folk Alley at Folk Alliance in Toronto certainly proved his point to Matt Watroba.

Since forming in 1996, The Bills have taken their musical joyride across North America and Europe. In the live performance realm, the band has played for renowned festival, theatre and club audiences of all sizes since 2001. Fans and reviewers have kindly glowed about The Bills' emotive songwriting talent, unparalleled instrumental virtuosity (and musical arrangements that let those skills shine), the broadest of musical backgrounds (true training and experience in roots, rock, jazz and the classical realms), world-class high-energy showmanship and the band's unpretentious good-time vibe.
