Bill Ricchini is a singer and songwriter from Philadelphia, PA who writes lofty acoustic indie pop. He began to focus on his music after college and in 2001 recorded Ordinary Time in his south Philadelphia apartment. The debut got some international attention and praise from Salon.com's year-end list. Ricchini rereleased it in October of 2002 on the Megaforce Transdreamer and Rykodisc labels. The sophomore LP, Tonight I Burn Brightly appeared in 2005 to minor acclaim, though Ricchini's popularity got a boost when one of the tracks was included on the soundtrack to the popular "Grey's Anatomy" television series.
