“Live at the Listening Room” Come join Bill Harbour and Mike Powell as they record a live album of some of their favorite original “homegrown” music.
Birmingham transplant Mike Powell credits his friend Bill Harbour with getting him started as a songwriter and guitarist. Bill and Mike have been composing together for over 8 years, during which time Mike has honed his song writing skills and taught himself to play guitar. While both have written independently, their collaborative work is the foundation of a unique sound that both agree is “genreless.” Mike is a firm believer that the easiest songs to write and sing are the ones you’re living and insists on at least an ounce of his own life in every song to help pull the emotion out of performing them.
With Jimi Hendrix as his inspiration to pick up a guitar, native Mobilian Bill Harbour has been playing for 35 years, the last 20 plus years with various bands on the local scene including long stints with the show band Emerge and now The Ruffwater Band which routinely perform many of Bill’s creations. Bill credits several musical influences for the ability to cross over into any genre, but knows his style is firmly rooted in blues and classic rock. Not only does Bill play, he designs, shapes, builds and exclusively uses his own electric guitars on stage.
