cocreationsllc The early 1990's were a very fond time for me, especially after a friend introduced me to Windham Hill Music and the many wonderful musical artists you introduced to the world. The inner turmoil I was experiencing at the time was tempered and soothed by the peaceful gentleness of the WH catalog. Now with the release of Positano Songs, and the peaceful energy your guitar imbues, it's like time traveling; for my ears but most importantly for my soul. Thank you Will Ackermann! Larry K. Favorite track: Did I Dream This.

By 2015 I hadn’t written any new music in quite some time…it occurred to me that if there were any place in this world where I could probably find inspiration and write again, it would be in Positano, Italy.

William Ackerman Vermont

I recorded my first record for about $ 300 in 1975, creating Windham Hill Records in the process. I’ve produced George Winston and Michael Hedges among many others.

I’ve toured in the US, Europe and Japan. I have a Grammy Award and 21 Gold and Platinum Records as a producer in the US and overseas. My studio is in Windham County, Vermont. It’s been a lot of fun. Still is.
