Will Oldham on Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy
A man who acts under the name Will Oldham and a singer songwriter who performs under the name Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy has, over the past quarter of a century, made an idiosyncratic journey through, and an indelible mark on, the worlds of indie rock and independent cinema, intersecting with such disparate figures as Johnny Cash, Bjork, James Earl Jones and R. Kelly along the way.
These conversations with long-time friend and associate Alan Licht probe his highly individualistic approach to music making and the music industry, one that cherishes notions of intimacy, community, mystery, and spontaneity.
