one of the greatest songwriters and storytellers of all time. his delivery of stories is so simple, non-pretentious and that's so genius and unbeatable. No one to me is great at singing Ain't No Sunshine, Bill sang it with such simplicity and deepness that it makes impossible to make it better.
One of the most underrated artists. He had a very unique sound, a mixture of soul and blues accompanied by that powerful voice, all of which made him the great artist he is, rather than following trends of others. It's unbelievable that with his catelog of hits that he isn't more of a household name.
Eglantinetje - thanks, I tried that on your suggestion, but despite typing in 'Bill Withers' when I hit submit it told me I had voted for BILL WITHERS. I don't think that link supports suggesting case corrections. Goodness knows how the name got CAPPED in the first place!
