If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced. - Vincent Van Gogh

Bill Coffey has spent most of the past two decades living and playing music in his adopted hometown of Boise, Idaho. Both as a solo artist and in various groups, this high-energy, roots-rock and retro-country singer, songwriter and guitar player has played tour dates throughout the west and opened shows for such artists as John Hiatt, George Jones, Dwight Yoakam, Todd Snider, Alejandro Escovedo, John Hammond, Jr., Glen Phillips and many others.

Bill's songs swerve from upbeat, jangly country pop to the darker, lonesomer side of Americana and tell the stories of the real west. With vocals that are heartfelt and direct set against instrumentation firmly rooted in the traditions of American music – folk, country, blues, rock and everything in between – his work has been compared to John Prine, Gram Parsons, Townes Van Zandt and Bruce Springsteen.



Fronted by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Travis Ward, Hillfolk Noir is a trio of neo-traditionalists playing traditional music on traditional instruments for non-traditional times. They call it Junkerdash, and it's a sound brewed from folk, bluegrass, punk, string-band blues and other influences musical and otherwise.
