Songs to amuse people who think

A master of wordplay and wit, Bill Shipper delivers a very entertaining show, engaging audiences and leading sing-along refrains. 

Bill’s folk/bluesy style draws from his Memphis background, riding on solid acoustic skills and augmented with harmonica and ukulele. 

With witty songs such as “Tears on my Spreadsheet”, “My Lover Loves Liver”,  and “There’s a Spider in the Corner”,  Bill makes any event memorable.


Tom Lehrer has a kindred spirit in Bill Shipper…. he keeps the jokes short and fast, and the album is put together very well musically. Dirty Data is good for a chuckle… nice to be reminded of the lighter side of capitalism.”
