Sons of Bill
Sons of Bill is a Rock / Americana band from Virginia. See the following links to check out our look and sound:
Our music ranges from loud and raucous to quiet and reflective. We are influenced by everything from modern rock & roll to country from the 1930's and 40's so we are looking for a classic design which will stand the test of time. We are big fans of the "Southern Gothic" or "Steamboat Gothic" look as well as the Hatch Show Print look, but we'd love to see other ideas. Elements of irony and subtle humor are welcome, but certainly not required.
Addendum #1-- If you are not familiar with the term "southern gothic" please do some research. It is nothing like "goth" look of the last few decades. Think "O Brother Where art Thou" or a slightly more refined Drive by Truckers look. These are just ideas and feel free to design whatever you feel fits our sound. We would love to use two or three of the entries so don't be afraid to take some risks.
Addendum #2-- When I say I like the Hatch Show look, I dont mean I want a typical country western style t-shirt. Try to avoid cliche if you choose this style.
Addendum #3-- So far most of the entries are appropriate for a band who does nothing but loud rock. We have that side to us, but much of what we do is more laid back Americana al la Ryan Adams & Wilco. I think the design should be appropriate for both.
Everyone from teens to old folks.
Contest is very open. We only require that our band name be fairly prominent on the shirt.
