William Neal

Born in Washington, D.C. to a family of musicians and singers, William had an ear for music from a very young age. He recalls being captivated by songs like Frankenstein (Edgar Winter) which to this day is one of his favorite songs. William started playing bass around 1979. In the years following, he learned to play guitar and some keyboards. He always had the dream of producing a CD since first picking up the bass. He has now released his debut CD Pillars and Dreams in fulfillment of that dream. He encourages other to keep perusing after their dreams.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
