Reviews & Quotes

“Of course, parents will appreciate the fact that the guitar-toting Harley not only seems innately tuneful, he’s been around long enough to cultivate an interest in a pleasing variety of folk and pop music styles.” The Washington Post

“Just wanted to let you know that my children, Marty and Jack love your recordings. We listen to a number of children performers but I always hear, “Can you put on Bill Harley”. Thanks for being a good influence on my children!” Lisa
