Songwriter, Author & Performer…

From the age of 14, Bill Quateman, a native of Chicago, played a variety of music around the Windy City, and began performing in clubs and coffeehouses in the early 1970’s.

In 1972, Quateman was signed to Columbia Records as a special project of legendary music impresario Clive Davis, who was responsible for signing music legends Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Janis Joplin and Sly and the Family Stone. There, he began building a devoted fan base following the release of his debut album, “Bill Quateman,” which led to critical acclaim and national tours. Bill subsequently recorded for RCA Records and his classic albums included: “Night After Night,” “Shot in the Dark,” and “Just Like You.”

Throughout his career, Quateman has attracted an impressive list of fellow artists. David Sanborn, James-Newton Howard, Ron Wood, Paul Buckmaster, Ken Ascher, Buzz Feiten, Caleb Quaye and Davey Johnstone (both from Elton John’s bands) and Michael McDonald are just some of the musicians who have worked with Bill in concert or in the studio.

Almost twenty years after setting his performing career aside to raise his family, Bill Quateman made a long awaited and triumphant return to performing in 2000, playing to SRO crowds. Reviewers have consistently noted that Quateman has always generated an instantaneous bond between himself and his audiences. It has been said of his presence: “Bill Quateman is in a category all by himself.”

A prolific writer, Quateman’s on-going theme is the many pathways of true compassion and the mysteries of the human heart. He touches on these central human issues through his multi-media humanitarian projects under the auspices of Angel Mind (AngelMind.net). His CDs are available at billquateman.com. Bill enchants and inspires as he masterfully weaves music and story to bring attention to the simple yet profound lessons of fulfillment we find when we take care of and have affection for each other.
