Bill Scorzari is a native New York singer-songwriter.
His music combines elements of Americana, Roots and Folk, creating new sounds and compositions with perfect efficiency, neither falling short nor going too far. Each song tells an unabridged story that is confrontational and beautiful, evoking an unguarded emotional response within his listeners in a communal and cathartic space. Bill shares the understanding that every performance is “an opportunity to be genuine and real and I’ve found that it’s only very rarely that you are allowed to be so publicly honest” (Gregory Alan Isakov, SerialBox Presents).
His many influences include such foundational Blues/Roots greats as, Blind Willie Johnson, Blind Willie McTell and Son House to name a few, as well as today’s powerful singer-songwriters, Justin Townes Earle and Gregory Alan Isakov (to name just two more).
Bill's band, THE RADDLE CHAINS AND STRAW WALKERS (named after parts of a combine harvester which “separate the wheat from the chaff”), is comprised of some of the most talented musicians in the tri-state area. Recent performances include at such New York venues as, The Paramount Theater, The Patchogue Theater for the Performing Arts, The Long Island Fall Festival, The Long Island Folk Festival, The Cinema Arts Centre, as well as venues in Franklin and Nashville, Tennessee.
