Biography

Oakland, California, and raised in Tulare, California, USA. Bill Pursell had one US Top 10 hit in 1963 before going on to a successful career as a session pianist. Pursell’s main claim to fame was ‘Our Winter Love’, a number 9 single for Columbia Records. Before that, he studied music composition in Baltimore and worked as an arranger for the US Air Force Band during World War II. Further musical education following his discharge led to a position with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and a teaching position at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University. He signed with Columbia in 1962 and recorded an album that included his version of the instrumental ‘Our Winter Love’. After its chart run, and that of the album of the same title (with arrangements by Bill Justis and an orchestra conducted by Grady Martin), Pursell continued to record, for such labels as Epic, Alton and Dot Records, but he never made the charts again.
