++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ New York native, Bill Scorzari, independently releases his third full-length album of all original music, ‘Now I’m Free,’ on September 20. His sound is gritty, raw and at times, downright sad. His songs transition through a multitude of emotions, with themes centered on the experiences of the human condition. Of his music, some say it’s spoken word, and others, an amalgam of the voice of Tom Waits, the delivery of Sam Baker, and the soul of Kris Kristofferson. In his lyrics, there is a poetic grace, a calming and resigned wisdom of acceptance that shines through the wistful melancholy of hope, and breaks free.
“Bill Scorzari is a force. His songwriting is stellar, his picking above par and his voice fits his songs perfectly." --No Depression
“...his thoughtful, cinematically shaped songs that continue to resonate after repeated listens. Yes, this is a ‘must hear’ for singer-songwriter aficionados.” --Elmore
Bill’s authenticity as a songwriter moves you through his music breath by breath. Profound and poetic, Scorzari’s emotionally charged and introspective compositions are sung with a knowing tenderness of heart.
The new album was performed live in the studio by Scorzari and a long list of critically acclaimed and otherwise notable musicians including Will Kimbrough, Erin Rae (Americana Music Association nominee for Best Emerging Artist of 2019), Eamon McGloughlin (AMA nominee for Best Instrumentalist of 2019), Michael Rinne (AMA nominee for Best Instrumentalist of 2019), and more.
Produced by Neilson Hubbard (Orphan Brigade), ‘Now I’m Free’ was recorded and mixed by engineer Dylan Alldredge at Skinny Elephant Recording in Inglewood, TN and mastered by Jim DeMain at Yes Master Studios.
Born of the past three years’ introspection and contemplation of the human condition, Scorzari writes some of his most compelling compositions to date. ‘Now I’m Free’ is a followup to, ‘Just the Same’ (2014) and ‘Through These Waves’ (2017). ‘Now I’m Free’ offers a deeper and unguarded look into Scorzari’s soul, weathered and bared, and rooted in the present moment while moving freely into the unspoken promises of the future.
Although he picked up his first guitar at just 8 years old, it wasn’t until 2011 that he was able to give his artistry the attention it deserves. The passing of Bill’s father and role-model, whose footsteps he had followed into the practice of law, marked a time of profound change and opened a new chapter – one that required a giant leap towards pursuing a passion that had long been tucked away in Bill's heart. The three albums (and their titles) that he created thereafter, represent the narrative and catharsis of his journey: past, present and future.
