My musical career spans more than 50 years; from the Folk Music venues of Boston, New York City and Montreal during the 1960’s, to the ski resorts and honky tonks of Northern New England from the 1970’s to the 1990’s. In 1973, I released my first album called“Sunday Mornin’ Hayride”. That album has been re-released by Riverman Records and Yoga Records and was voted in the top ten retro re-issues for 2009 by the Acid Archives.
In 1974, I formed Them Fargo Brothers which became New England’s Premier Country Rock Band, and I toured with the band until 1990. I am currently writing and recording in my studio and marketing my CD’s through my web site and have downloads available across the web. I am also seeking to license my music to films, etc.

GREAT REVIEW OF “SWEET JELLY”
From Toni-Taylor Helser of Barefoot Music!
This Barefoot music listener and fan of Bill Madison received a message from Bill a couple of months back that put a smile on my face. Bill said he had woke one morning with his song “Barefootin’ Boogie” in his head. Recording it and including it in his message saying he thought of Yours Truly. Soon this became the intro track to his new CD “Sweet Jelly”.
From this intro track and throughout the album’s collection of tunes Bill keeps your feet doing a definite boogie with his rich acoustic guitar accompaniment, and his distinctive vocal quality full of natural expressions.
Bill is the first artist I experienced with Online Busking on his Saturday shows on www.streetjelly.com, happily so, as I quite like Bill’s style and sound. His latest album/Cd is a 13 track collection from his Street Jelly shows. I find the natural feel of this album as easy and comfortable to listen to as it is to experience his shows online. It is a venue made for an artist like Bill Madison, and I am delighted that his was my first experience with concerts in this format.
This collection begins with his original tune Barefootin’ Boogie that absolutely sets the tone of ambiance for the listener. Bill takes us through a journey of classic cover tunes that will have you feeling you have been time warped in the most of nostalgic ways. Bill has an easy flow to his vocal tone that he compliments so nicely with his acoustic guitar which creates a rich full sound as a soloist.
From his inspiring epic “All Along The Watch Tower”, to the romance of Eric Clapton’s ?Wonderful Tonight”, to the closing track “Forever Young” this album will certainly inspire memories from days gone by as well as inspire new memory making today.
Get yours inspired today.
