Bill has been performing as long as he can remember and has had the opportunity to sing in many different venues: from church, a cappella groups and various bands to professional musical theater and even the Atlanta opera.  His personal and musical journey changed in college when he became a Christian.

"I grew up in the church and was extremely involved," Fair says, "but I didn't really understand what a personal relationship with God meant.  My faith, as well as the music I sang, felt a bit cold and detached."  Through a college ministry at the University of Georgia, he became aware for the first time that an intimate relationship with God through Jesus was possible, and everything shifted for him.  Music became intensely personal and "performing" took on a different meaning.  He became passionate about singing Christian music and even started a traveling group in college that performed in churches throughout the state.  After college, he traveled internationally as a soloist for a Christian group based out of California.

While he was happy to communicate other people's messages through song, he became inspired to pen his own experiences with God and come up with melodies that resonated with his life's story.  "I really did it for myself," says Fair, "just to express my heart to God.  When I shared my songs with other people, I was completely blown away by their reaction."  Family and friends and friends of friends from all different faiths connected with the songs and responded in a very passionate way.  "They told me they would play them over and over during difficult times to lift them up." Fair says.  "That meant the world to me and encouraged me to continue writing, producing and recording."

When a good friend of his passed away at the early age of 37, Bill was devastated.  "We went to law school together and sang all the time -- weddings, church services, leading music for worship teams, etc.  I even sang at her wedding.  When she died, I went numb.  It was the first time I lost anyone I was that close to.  She left behind a husband and a small baby.  It was just so sad."  He searched the Bible and read everything he could about Heaven to get through the grief, because he knew that's where she was.  "It helped me to imagine what it was like for her the moment her spirit left her body -- holding Jesus' hand, walking on golden streets, hearing the music and seeing the colors of Heaven.  I imagined her 'singing loud, melodies to the King!'  I tried to capture the wonder of Heaven in my song 'Bright Lights, Big City.'  I can't wait to see her there one day."

Bill currently calls Atlanta, Georgia home but is never away from Augusta, his hometown, for too long.  His parents, 3 siblings, and 7 nieces and nephews who still live there make sure of that!
