Bill Hearne, along with his wife Bonnie, were active in the early Austin, Texas music scene in the mid 1970's and were an influence on many other artists playing around in that fertile melting pot of American musical streams. Artists like Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett, who were just getting their start, became lifelong friends. Bill and Bonnie moved to northern New Mexico and the little mountain community of Red River, which became known as 'Austin North', with folks like Michael Murphey, Bob Livingston, and Ray Wiley Hubbard passing through and hanging around, later relocating to beautiful Santa Fe. After Bonnie's retirement from active performance due to health issues, Bill formed the Bill Hearne Trio and still keeps a busy performance schedule, both around his home turf of New Mexico and also on tours through Texas and Oklahoma. 'All That's Real' brings together many of Bill's musician friends from his long career, contributing their special magic to Bill's expressive baritone and his highly creative and unique flat picking style.
