Bill Poss is a songwriter and performer from Effingham, IL who has been touring North America for two decades - first solo, then with the Ginn Sisters and Fred Eaglesmith.

Whether he is solo or with his five piece band - the Useful Tools, Bill Poss entertains with great songs and great stories, often in the same breath. Poss cuts a wide path, shifting easily from folk and bluegrass to country and rock. His years on the road have provided him with great fodder for his songs and his stories.

Bill Poss has 5 CDs and a book, the Bill Poss Travelogue, to his name. The first three CDs are under his full given name, Bill Passalacqua.
