My name is Billy Shuler. I have 3 beautiful kids whom I’m raising full-time alone and are my entire world. Professionally, I work within the IT industry which I find to be both fulfilling and fun. I grew up in rural Kentucky and am very grateful for that. There are a number of hobbies that I jump in and out of when time permits. These hobbies have included music, web design, reading, writing and learning about what ever subject enters mind, however random it may be. Favorite Movies: The Time Machine Favorite Bands: Down, Pink Floyd, Type O Negative Favorite Authors: H.G. Wells, Clive Cussler, Stephen King
From the time I was little I’ve always been interested in the guitar. When I was real little it was Chet Atkins, Roy Clark and Jerry Reid. As I got a little older it was Jimmy Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Satriani and Kirk Hammet. Around the time I got into high school and into my first band I would learn the popular music of the time which was Nirvana, Green Day, and the Fugees. Of course in addition to those, the bands I were in would play Metallica, Slayer and Pantera songs. It was during this time that I’d start dabbling with the composition of original music and at the same time discovered the band Type O Negative. I became intrigued with melody with a heavy background and incorporated guitar harmonies that where inspired by Metallica and Iron Maiden. In general my songs are dynamic with a simple melody and since I’m more of a rhythm player, the solos are usually kept light.
This website is just a holding area for all my different interests. You can listen to the music I write and/or record but can also read about the various projects I’m doing around my house. So basically, this is just a personal blog where you can also listen to my music.
