Prairie Fire contains all new original modern jazz with moments of pastoral folk, funk grooves and rock energy. The songs are a personal expression of the loss, pain, happiness, joy and hope that Billy has experienced this past year. The prairie fire is a metaphor for renewal and growth in the face of all that is lost.

Produced by Joe Tortorici & Billy Denk. Engineered by Ben Carver at StudioMedia, Evanston, IL.
