|Bill Quateman started his music career as a singer songwriter during the 70's folk music era in Chicago. His first record deal in 1972 was with Clive Davis at Columbia. The album was successful, with two fairly big hits. While working on his second album, the Clive Davis scandal hit Columbia. New management wanted to go a different direction than Quateman. He was dropped from Columbia.
He was picked up by RCA several years later. The magic of the first album couldn't be recreated. The following three albums did well enough, but not nearly as well as his first. The three albums were heavily produced. His first album was sparse and fit the definition of that singer/songwriter era, the next three were more corporate of the time.
He temporarily retired from the music industry to raise his children Dylan (1987) and India Rain.
In the 2000s, he reemerged to perform publicly for a brief period. He released the 1973 album (theoretically his second album) he worked on at Columbia, and two more albums. He published a book based on raising his daughter as a single parent.
Also in the 2000s he became a health coach and eventually founded a Natural Medicine Company. He is currently the International Director of Advanced Bio Cell.
Born, Chicago, Illinois, USA.|
