Bill Janovitz formed Buffalo Tom with his friends Chris Colbourn and Tom Maginnis in 1986, while the three were students at the University of Massachusetts. Starting out on such seminal indie labels as SST and Beggars Banquet, they rode the 1990s wave on US major labels like RCA and Elektra. They toured the UK, Europe,and the rest of the world extensively during that decade, appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, My So Called Life, and the Jon Stewart Show. While deciding to put the band on the back burner in 1999, they have continued to put out records and tour occasionally. They even scored a Top 10 hit on the pop charts in the UK. Their most recent album was Quiet and Peace in 2017, and the band is currently working on a new collection of songs. Bill has released four solo records and was invited on stage two nights at Fenway Park by Pearl Jam in 2018 to sing the Buffalo Tom song, "Taillights Fade." He lives in Lexington with his family and has written two books on the Rolling Stones, and an authorized biography of Leon Russell, to be published by Hachette Books in 2023. He has a summer house in North Falmouth and the Cape is near and dear to him, so he is thrilled to be making his solo Cape debut at the Cotuit Center for the Arts.
