"You are incomparable!  Your brilliance shines through every note. "

"Mr. Hale, you are a rare eclectic musician that can turn any musical form into gold.  I believe your are one of the most profoundly creative, versatile, and inwardly inspired composers today."

Jim Chase

"In the winter of 1976, I met Billy Hale in Anchorage, Alaska...

"Billy had already made a name for himself as an accomplished guitarist with the locals, and his reputation was legendary. Those who knew his musical talent spoke of him in hushed tones as 'Billy Six-Fingers' -- in referrence to his fretting hand.

"Recognising his natural ability, I recruited Billy to play gigs all around South-Central Alaska, and farther north in Fairbanks, where his reputation spread like wild-fire among musicians and listeners alike.  I carried a document In loco parentis that allowed Billy to perform music in venues where alcohol was served."

"In the winter of '76, Billy Hale was 14 years old."
