Turn to Me, Bill's debut CD was recorded in January 2000 at Park Head Studio, nr Huddersfield. Engineered and produced by Brian Bedford, the thirteen tracks have a live feel and sparse instrumentation – often mostly Bill and her piano and accordion, with splashes of colour from Saskia Tomkins (fiddle, ‘cello) and Simon Haworth (guitar). Turn to Me was exceptionally well received by the music media, and kickstarted Bill’s full-time career.
