Bonnie "Prince" Billy


Will Oldham has always been somewhat of a mystery to me. I don't know what to call him. Bonnie "Prince" Billy? I suppose either will suffice. He's one of the seminal alt-country singer/songwriters in music right now, according to many. I need to hear more of him before I pass that kind of judgement, but he does have a very pleasant way about him. The reverb is haunting; the simple arrangements are mournful. He's kind of a big deal. People know him. He has many leather-bound books and his apartment smells of rich mahogany.
