William Mylar is a singer, songwriter, and musician, currently
living in Galt, CA.
Mylar has played music nearly all of his life, beginning with piano
at age 7. He acquired vocal training while working as a child actor
in professional and community theatrical productions. Mylar taught
himself guitar at age 18 and, along with his booming singing voice,
the guitar became his primary instrument.
Mylar invented Folk Wave music to describe his unique approach
to performing his original music. Folk Wave was unusual in the late
70s and early 80s, because solo Mylar performances were more like
rock and roll shows instead of the typical entertainment provided
by folk artists of the time. Mylar often performed 4 to 5 hour solo
shows that included leaping on tables and chairs. It was not uncommon
to see people get up and dance. His legendary performances and pioneering
approach to Folk music has been copied by many other folk artists.
Mylar also played in a number of rock bands in the 80s and 90s,
mostly as a rhythm guitarist and lead singer. He has performed all
over the world and has recorded on a number of albums, radio, and
television. "I Like It That Way", One World, One People",
and "Randy's Fence" have all been aired on radio around
the world. "Don't Ever Go" and "Sweet Alibi"
became two of the first mp3s to be featured on MP3.com.
Mylar's first album, Folk Wave Music, was acclaimed for both the
muscial compositions and also the way the album was recorded, using
a simple one track technique and engineered acoustics. His second
solo album, Real Mylar, was rated #17 in the top 25 Folk albums
in America. His new album, Listen, was recorded with some of the
Sacramento area's finest musicians and arranged to propel Mylar's
music into the pop and rock genres. "The best album to come
out of Sacramento in a long time." - Matt Erich, owner of EME
