BC Sound Studio Owner/Engineer, Kerry Johnson wrote: 'How much impact can a song really have if it doesn't make you laugh, cry, or cause the hair on the back of your neck to tingle? That's how singer, songwriter William Fundaugh writes his songs. He has been labeled the 'Poet to the Family,' and for good reason. He's not only has the courage to speak his mind, but he does so with the conviction of personal experience. Here is a man that stands the test of time. Even though life has shot it's sharpest arrows, Bill continues to speak forth words of hope and encouragement to those who have regrettable family histories. Bill's southern drawl gives evidence to his Paducah, Kentucky birthplace. Born to Oscar and Velma Fundaugh on April 7th 1955, the family relocated to Battle Creek, Michigan where Bill attended and graduated from Battle Creek schools. Making music is certainly not new for him either; he has been writing and making music for years. Bill's dad taught him what he knew about the guitar in his early years, but beyond that. Bill's desire to play drove him to practice and learn basically all on his own. Songwriting easily followed. Through out his life, Bill has continued to stick close to his music and to the Lord. God and the guitar have provided him with some very special avenues of expressing his thoughts and feelings. Music Producer, Mike Johnston notes: 'Bill writes songs that will reach you where you live, touching even the most hardened heart. His lyrics, mostly based on life experiences, hit strong emotional notes, made even more poignant by the way that nearly anyone, regardless of race, gender, or age can relate to his powerful words, His songs will press bruises unapologetically into your soul. He is not obligated to make you smile, though some of his songs will. But hopefully the full scope of his intent will shine forth from the first note to the final tear of every performance he gives and every song he sings. Bill's completed CD project, Children's Tears, is just another example of his tremendous ability to capture thought processes and emotions and present those to audiences..., causing them in turn both to feel what he's feeling and to think what he's thinking. It's a heartfelt look into the mind of an extraordinarily caring, thoughtful person, while at the same time being a compelling call for a response on the part of the every list.
