Billy Crockett is enjoying critical acclaim for his late 2016 release of RABBIT HOLE on Blue Rock Artists. He’s also back to performing after a 10-year hiatus. In May, 2017, reviewer Geoff Wilbur in Boston wrote of Billy’s concert presence — “Rich, storytelling songs are driven by Billy’s powerful, emotionally expressive vocals.”
Crockett is also a music producer and the creative director of Blue Rock Studio in the Texas hill country. He has recorded twelve solo albums and toured internationally. Billy is a multi-instrumentalist and has produced albums for Cliff Eberhardt, Grace Pettis, Beth Wood, RJ Cowdery, Darryl Purpose, and others. He has been featured on the BMI songwriter panel at SXSW, in the television series Troubadour, TX, and as guitar clinician for Yamaha. Rolling Stone named him one of “10 Artists to Know in 2017” and calls his warm sound “coffeehouse folk without pretension.”
American Songwriter writes, “He achieves that delicate fusion of refinement and soul…, delivering the essence of the thing with crystalline purity.”
Most recently, Billy was the opening MainStage artist for the 2017 Kerrville Folk Festival.
