Bill Parton is a fresh, popular, classy, hip, charismatic, super-smooth and internationally-acclaimed award-winning vocalist, performer, pianist and entertainer. He effortlessly combines jazz, swing, adult contemporary & easy listening genres with modern show business to create a product that’s cool and socially relevant today.

His mainstream musical influences include The Beatles, Queen, Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, Coldplay and Keane.
Bill first formally connected with music at the age of 8 years old when he began private piano tuition. In the early years, aside from piano, he also dabbled in violin, trumpet and even the banjo! He completed his secondary schooling through Brighton Secondary School, a school nationally renowned for its Special Interest Music Program, where he was awarded a music scholarship. At Brighton he was introduced to the likes of improvisation, theory, harmony, music history, small ensembles, choirs, orchestras and big bands. Parton holds a Master of Music Studies (Performance) degree which he completed through the Sydney Conservatorium of Music (University of Sydney). He has enjoyed the tuition from some of the country’s finest jazz educators including Matt McMahon, David Theak, Simon Barker, Andrew Dickeson, Dan Barnett, Craig Scott, Kevin Hunt, Judy Bailey and Mike Nock.
Parton comes with a wealth of experience and an impressive resume having been active on the professional live scene since the age of 12 when he first started performing at local piano bars. He has since accumulated a tally of over 1000 performances to over 750 different clients at over 250 different venues.
