About the Author
Bill is a teacher by day and webmaster by night. Bill started working with bands and their online presence in 1995. He founded AK Music Scene in February of 2004 and the Pennsylvania Rock Show followed shortly after in September of 2004. In October of 2016, he founded Podcast your Scene Bill hopes that his websites help the bands around the world get their music heard. Unsigned music creates signed music, and there are a lot of bands out there that deserve a shot at that. In late 2017, Bill started his 4th unsigned music website, www.buildthescene.com

Reign of Z is asking for your help with their upcoming EP

Reign of Z began its journey in April of 2017 and since then has had the fortune of amazing experiences in the short time we’ve been together. We had the honor and privilege of playing the Shira Girl stage on the final Vans Warped Tour and were even able to co-headline the Whisky A Go-Go in LA with Black Valentine on the date Dysmorphia dropped. With your help, our story is just getting started. Next month we will be heading back into the studio to finish our debut EP, Mirrors and Memoirs, with Justin Spaulding at More Sound Studio. Justin was the master behind the console with Dysmorphia and we are ecstatic to return!

Life and Mayhem…

You: “Hey Bill, I noticed your podcast and article output what gives?”

Me: “Well, life does. I have 3 active children (basketball, clubs, competitions, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, etc) who I’ve been watching become great people; however, that doesn’t mean I don’t see what is going on out there in our scene and that I don’t have plans of my own…”

As far as the Pennsylvania Rock Show goes, I have interviews scheduled with GONTO & Leprosy. GONTO will be discussing his recent releases and his upcoming video. Leprosy will be chatting with me about 30 years in the scene!

As far as Build the Scene goes, we’re still working on adding the best unsigned music from South Western PA to our rotation. This week we added new music from the Justin Wade Band and Storm Dragon.
