Spotlight On: Bill Easley, Musician

Jacquie Bird

“…The key to everything is Gratitude…” “Feeling Good is a full time job…” 

The spotlight is on Bill Easley. Bill Easley has had a diversified career as a professional musician. He joined the musicians union, Local 115 in 1959. 2022 marks the 63rd year of his professional career. Bill represents the fourth generation of a family dedicated to music.

After military service Easley joined The George Benson Quartet in January of 1968 and traveled with the great guitarists for the remainder of the decade. This band worked in legendary jazz spots including Minton’s Playhouse in New York, The Plugged Nickel in Chicago, The Jazz Workshop in Boston, and The Hurricane in Pittsburgh.

Following a brief residence in Pittsburgh, PA, the internal voice (instinct) led him to Memphis, Tennessee. In Memphis he did a variety of things including: performing and recording with Isaac Hayes, other studio work, big bands, show bands, and jazz clubs. He also continued his formal education at Memphis State University. It was in the mid 1970’s that Easley first toured with the Duke Ellington Orchestra under the direction of Mercer Ellington. In January of 1980, Bill moved back to New York City with the promise of a job on Broadway.

Welcome to episode 80 of Roll With Peace, In Mind featuring another installment of ‘Are You On The Right Train? Riding On The Urge’ featuring folks who have chosen to follow their hearts, dreams and Intuition. They did not and do not listen to the nay-sayers or to the ‘it can’t be done-ners’ but step out on Faith, Passion and Intention, not allowing fears to derail them.
