New York based singer-songwriter Bill Scorzari’s voice has been likened to that of Tom Waits, and his lyricism and delivery to that of John Prine. No Depression, The Journal of Roots Music, says “Bill Scorzari is a force. His songwriting is stellar, his picking above par and his voice fits his songs perfectly."
Bill picked up his first guitar at the age of seven and has played his whole life, but it wasn’t until sometime after 2008 that he became a full-time singer-songwriter. Since then, it has been a steady climb, and he recorded and released his debut album in 2011, to immediate critical acclaim. His second album, Through These Waves, was released in 2017 and jumped straight to #1 on the Americana Music Association’s Most-Added-Radio-Stations Top-50 chart, and later landed on many Top-Albums-of-2017 lists.
"One of 2017’s best albums so far comes from New York-based Bill Scorzari ... The crisp, organic interplay of both acoustic and electric instruments perfectly frame Scorzari’s weathered, raspy voice … then there are his thoughtful, cinematically shaped songs that continue to resonate after repeated listens. Yes, this is a must hear for singer-songwriter aficionados." Elmore Magazine
