Callahan did some experimental songs did during the inception of his career. They apparently lacked melody and gave the feel of incoherent guitar tunes put together. However, people who listened to his experimental side the still managed to make a lot of sense out of them. The distinct unmixable sounds he produced and recorded in tapes, came out as a debutant titled ‘Sewn to the Sky'. The characteristic dissonant music played by Bill was inspired by Jandek who remained his most profound influence to date.
The artist musical potential was immense and it manifested well in his instrumentals. He earned a deal with Drag City studios once his debut album reached them. Working with the label brought a more professional edge to his music. The use of variable instruments and superior recording techniques that artist’s music quality skyrocketed.

During this time period, he recorded two albums with famous producers Jim O' Rourke and John McEntire in collaboration with Neil Hagerty. In 2000s, he released an album 'Dongs of Sevotion', after which he switched to the rather plain sounding instrumentation/recording approach. This along with his consistent songwriting style allowed Callahan to transform his music altogether.
