Bill Tucker Biography

I was born in Jacksonville, FL and raised in West Covina, CA. Here's a mix of surf and pop from my O.C. studio; featuring memorable melodies, catchy hooks and jangly guitar. My first band was The Malards (As in duck! Yes, only 1 el, tricky huh?), Then I went on to join The Sound Foundation (a high school sponsored New Christy Minstrels type group), Just Before 60, Wacks and Albion Moonlight. My songwriting partner John Simon and I almost signed with Shelter Records in the late 70's in the Dwight Twilley/Tom Petty era. We were disappointed we didn't make the final cut, but we did continue to perform in Southern California at places like The Cuckoo's Nest and Madame Wong's. One of our songs almost made Phil Seymour's debut album! Oh well... In 2001, I was selected along with 9 fellow employees at at&t to record a company-wide promotional CD called ERICfest. We met with producer/recording artist Doug Robinson at Capitol Records in Hollywood to record a collection of 10 Beach Boys songs. I sang "Surfer Girl". The release of the CD was followed by a live performance with The Beach Boys at Universal Amphitheater. Very cool... This experience re-energized my musical aspirations so I joined the sound production crew at my church and started helping lead worship singing with the Praise Team. I've since written, recorded and produced 2 CDs...Watch Over Me, a spiritual collection of original songs and Briardale, a mainstream pop/rock project. Both of these are available at CD Baby.
