Bill Meyers


Having studied classical organ at a young age, Bill Meyers thought of himself as a music snob.  While his friends were into Led Zeppelin and other rock artists, Bill was focusing on the works of Bach.  Bill honed his skills at the University of DePaul where he discovered a love for jazz, blues and R&B and started making his own music.  A demo he created landed in the hands of Gino Vannelli and the rest is history.  Bill joined Gino’s touring band, which eventually led him on his path in the music industry performing, producing, arranging and writing music for the likes of Madonna, Earth Wind and Fire, George Dukes, Boz Scaggs, Lou Rawls, David Foster, Natalie Cole, Sheila E, and many others.  Here to expand on his incredible career is Bill Meyers.

Ed Motta

On this episode of Inside MusiCast, we take you to Rio de Janeiro to chat with a multifaceted musician whose music explores many avenues, including jazz, soul, MPB, rock, funk, and a deep love for the West Coast sound – Ed Motta.   Since launching his solo career in 1990, Ed has  released 13 albums containing these various music elements, but it was his 2013 release “AOR” that caught our attention here at Inside MusiCast.  For lovers of that smooth, West Coast vibe, “AOR” became an instant classic.  Earlier this year, Ed followed-up “AOR” with “Perpetual Gateways”, a record that again explores similar West Coast territory, but takes a journey into some well-crafted jazz and includes some heavy duty guest musicians, including Hubert Laws, Greg Phillinganes. Patrice Rushen, and Marvin ‘Smitty’ Smith.  Needless to say, Ed Motta is a musician’s musician and we’re excited to have him here with us today.  Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome Ed Motta.
