Bio

Frank & Bill

Discography

  Hailing from Middletown, New Jersey, Bill began playing bass in 1973, playing in bands throughout high school and college, before life eventually took him in a different direction. He has been working with Frank Patrouch since 2012, through a solo CD of Frank’s. This reunion prompted them to make a new record as a duo, 2015’s ‘One Good Line’, and hit the road, playing coffeehouses with their own brand of 70’s country rock. In 2016 he released “ Shotgun Bill- the B- Sides”. Also in 2016, Frank & Bill release another CD entitled “ Unplugged and Uncouth”.  In the summer of 2017  with help of one of his long time friends Scott Yetka, he released his 2nd solo album with 16 new original songs, " Train Cars,Prison Bars...and a White Guitar"  and a third album in 2019 "Lonesome Cowboys"( all titles on Itunes, Amazon, CD Baby and Band Camp and Spotify.)   His music style is a blend of coffee house americana with an original singer / songwriter vibe.
He performs at local coffee houses and venues playing a compilation of original songs here at the Jersey Shore.   Bill Anania is a Podiatrist and resides and practices in Middletown, NJ with his wife and has one son (who plays drums on "The B-Sides).     `�
