Bill Pritchard is a British singer-songwriter, instrumentalist (guitars, keyboards), musical arranger and producer. The dry, deadpan voice and introspective storytelling of Bill Pritchard has drawn comparisons to Morrissey and Lloyd Cole. Although he was born in Lichfield, England, Pritchard is more well-known outside of his homeland; Pritchard has amassed cult followings in Japan, Italy, Holland, Belgium, and France, where he eventually relocated. Pritchard's first two LPs, Bill Pritchard and Half a Million, triggered interest at Play It Again Sam Records
Pritchard's music came to the attention of the . independent label Third Mind Records, who released his first two albums, 1987's Bill Pritchard and 1988's Half a Million. The albums came to the attention of the Belgian imprint Play It Again Sam Records, and the label engineered a collaboration between Pritchard and Daniel Darc, vocalist with the French group Taxi Girl. In 1991, Ian Broudie of Care and the Lightning Seeds produced Pritchard's fourth album, Jolie. The popularity of Jolie in Japan and Canada piqued the interest of Polygram/Island Records, and they signed Pritchard to a contract. However, problems with the company stalled his career, and he would never release a record for the label. As Pritchard sorted out his problems with his label, he formed a short-lived band called Beatitude with guitarist Tim Bradshaw, bassist Tuppy Rutter, and drummer Paul Barlow.
