By Alan Haber – Pure Pop Radio
Bill Lloyd’s It’s Happening Now is yet another in a long line of sterling albums from one of pop music’s most proficient practitioners. Bill’s first set of original songs since 2012’s Boy King of Tokyo extends his unwavering winning streak. Acoustically based and typically heartfelt, these melodically-charged numbers touch the heart and soul.
Bill joined me on Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation on January 31 to talk about It’s Happening Now. He talked about, and we played, three songs that are among the best he has written and recorded thus far: “Ruby Falls,” which cleverly references Mel Tillis’s song “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town,” driven hit-bound by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition in 1969; the pretty, mid-tempo “Let Me In Your Life Again”; and the gorgeous waltz, “Happiness,” powered by Bill’s strong vocal and a lovely melody.
It is always a pleasure to welcome Bill to the In Conversation microphones. Enjoy this latest visit, and be sure to purchase a copy of It’s Happening Now, one of Pure Pop Radio’s Favorite Records of 2017. Click here to add this glorious album to your collection.
