Bill Payne
Bill (* 1949) is one of the founding members of Little Feat. He is one of the most sought after session keyboard players in the world. As comfortable on the organ as at the piano, Bill brings his unique voice to the project. Bill has created a style of piano playing with Little Feat that draws on many traditions. Part N'Orleans R&B, part stride with some gospel, soul, jazz and Blues thrown in. This knowledge of an instruments tradition is also evident in his B-3 playing. Some of Bill's credits include: Bryan Adams, Beck, Jackson Browne, Doobie Brothers, Buddie Guy, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Robert Palmer, Bob Seger, Rod Stewart, Carly Simon, Paul Simon and James Taylor.
