Bill Leeb

Bill Leeb {born Wilhelm Anton Leeb, 21 September 1957, Vienna, Austria) is a electronic musician.

He moved to Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada with his family when he was 13. He was a high school student at Mount Elizabeth Secondary School starting in 1969.

Leeb began his musical career with industrial band Skinny Puppy under the pseudonym of Wilhelm Schroeder in 1985, contributing bass synth and occasional backing vocals to a few of their recordings and concerts from his period. He left in mid 1986 and formed his own industrial project Front Line Assembly with Michael Balch, and later Rhys Fulber and Chris Peterson. Though Front Line Assembly has had consistent underground success, Leeb's most widely known efforts are through his side project, Delerium, which had a major hit in the late 1990s with "Silence", featuring Sarah McLachlan.

Musical projects in which Bill Leeb has participated in include:
*Front Line Assembly
*Delerium
*Synæsthesia
*Cyberaktif (with cEvin Key and Dwayne Goettel)
*Noise Unit
*Intermix
*Equinox
*Skinny Puppy

Leeb lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. His ex-wife, Carylann Loeppky, created much of the artwork for his records over the years. He has no children. He has sold equipment used on early Front Line Assembly albums through eBay.
