— Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, legendary folk singer

“Bill Oliver is simply one of the most enthusiastic, joyful, positive forces in the world of music today. He’s totally magical. He’ll bring joy to your kids, your spirit and your delight in life. On the way, he’ll get to you with his message of environmental awareness, but in the nicest way.”
— Peter Yarrow, of “Peter, Paul & Mary”

“Bill’s been entertaining and captivating the national Sierra Club, and dozens of its chapters, groups, and campfires for as long as I remember. His prevalent themes of wilderness preservation, especially through his songs of John Muir and Stickeen, provide strong support for the Club’s founding values. All that, and a good time, too!”
— Larry Fahn, President, Sierra Club

“Bill Oliver knows the full array of songs on crucial environmental topics–from pollution to saving habitat. Mr. Habitat, as he is known, has composed many of these himself. He can put together a song fest that is loads of fun while being educational and occasionally full of trenchant satire. Whether he is entertaining a rally in the Grand Canyon to restore the Colorado River, playing several songs at a monthly meeting of the D.C. Environmental Network in Washington, singing to a class of school kids, or providing a fun evening of song for a group of donors, Bill Oliver hits the spot with his versatility. “
— Brent Blackwelder, President, Friends of the Earth
