"...once in awhile... just once in awhile...you find one and, man, it's a rush. Case in point, a compact disc by Bill Scorzari titled Through These Waves...Bill Scorzari is a force. His songwriting is stellar, his picking above par and his voice fits his songs perfectly. The album itself is a knockout. ..performances are topnotch all-around...I give this a solid A, top to bottom. I give 'Hound Dog Diggin'' an A+ for the groove alone."
John Platt / WFUV
"One of 2017’s best albums so far ... The crisp, organic interplay of both acoustic and electric instruments perfectly frame Scorzari’s weathered, raspy voice that many have described as “singular” or ’idiosyncratic.” Just to give you some clues, head in the direction of Tom Waits or Malcolm Holcombe. Scorzari’s voice is in that neighborhood but still stands apart. And, 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

No Depression calls Bill Scorzari "a force. His songwriting is stellar, his picking above par and his voice fits his songs perfectly." Bill Scorzari is a New York-based singer-songwriter, often likened to Sam Baker, Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen and John Prine. March 10, 2017 marked the release of Through These Waves, his second full-length record, produced by Jonah Tolchin (Yep Roc) and engineered, mixed, and mastered at the Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN. John Platt (WFUV) says of the artist and the album, "Bill Scorzari has a lived-in voice that says, 'Listen to these songs.' They spring from the earth and the ocean with an open heart and the wisdom of experience." The album features a cast of musicians including Joachim Cooder, Laur Joamets, Will Kimbrough, Chris Scruggs, Eamon McLoughlin, Jon Estes, Brent Burke, Kim Richey, Kyle Tuttle and Danny Roaman. In a recent interview, Tolchin calls Bill Scorzari, “one of the greatest songwriters I’ve ever heard.”
