CROSS-POLLINATION CCLXVII - TUES DEC 8TH - 7:30-10 PM
SHIRA GOLDBERG
BILL BARTHOLOMEW

Shira would like to start her own country so she could write the national anthem.

Whether fronting his hard-hitting band or delivering an intimate solo acoustic performance, Brooklyn singer-songwriter Bill Bartholomew captivates audiences with his powerful persona, warm voice and well-crafted originals.

"Strong songwriting, wordy lyrical constructs, and an ear for hooks...reminiscent of some of the leading indie folk troubadours of today, like Elvis Perkins and The Tallest Man On Earth...blistering electric guitar work...seriously infectious pop...I found myself not wanting it to be over." - ON DEAF EARS (Austin, TX)

"Start to finish with palpable energy. Bartholomew succeeds at delivering well written, honest-to-goodness folk/rock songs. A skilled songwriter and natural performer, (he) has the ability to seamlessly give himself to (and lose himself in) his music." - JEZEBELMUSIC.COM (NYC)

"Without a doubt, Bill Bartholomew enjoys performing and recording his songs on the spirited, hook-laden EP, "World on a Wire". "American Anthem" starts off with standard pop rock, but midway the song cuts into a funky breakdown with a showcase of his guitar skills. Bartholomew's bright vocals and charged-up choruses make for an exciting debut." - THE DELI MAGAZINE (NYC)

"Hook-filled songs." - THE HOOK (Charlottesville, VA)

"A flair for melody." - THE PROVIDENCE PHOENIX (Providence, RI)

"(He) literally didn't need a microphone at times for the force and emotion in his powerful voice." - Fifth Annual Williamsburg Live Songwriters Competition Journal (NYC)
