Beyond a Song host Rich Reardin interviews New York singer/songwriter Bill Scorzari. Bill Scorzari is a New York-based singer-songwriter, often likened to Tom Waits, Steve Earle, Bruce Springsteen, and John Prine, and whose music equally hints at many other of today's and yesterday's troubadours, such as Neil Young, Justin Townes Earle, Leonard Cohen, Gregory Alan Isakov, Blind Willie Johnson, Blind Willie McTell and more. A pivotal moment in Bill’s life was his discovery of a Live at Paste recording of Justin Townes Earle performing "Mama's Eyes," as it marked the transition from Bill's career focus on matters of the mind to matters of the heart. It’s the song that changed his life. Since then, Bill has written over 100 original compositions (and counting). He has opened for acts such as Frank Fairfield, Jonah Tolchin, Zac Sokolow (The Americans), Tom Marion, Whiskey Myers, Big Country, The Meadows Brothers, Twisted Pine and Laney Jones & The Spirits. In 2014, Bill released his acclaimed debut album, Just the Same, and in March of 2017, his sophomore album, Through These Waves, will also be released. Through These Waves was produced by Jonah Tolchin (Yep Roc) and engineered, mixed, and mastered by Billy Bennett at the famed Bomb Shelter studio in East Nashville, TN. The album was recorded over twelve days with a cast of musicians including Joachim Cooder, Laur Joamets, Will Kimbrough, Chris Scruggs, Eamon McLoughlin, Jon Estes, Brent Burke, Kim Richey,  Danny Roaman, Kyle Tuttle and more. In a recent interview with No Depression, Tolchin calls Bill Scorzari, “one of the greatest songwriters I’ve ever heard.” With sincere and robust lyrics, Scorzari’s raspy vocals usher the listener breezily into his world.
