JULY 2015

"Bloodshot Bill, legendary Canadian one-man band and heir apparent to the Hasil Adkins crown, is on the make and on the move with a new album and a rash of dates worldwide. Catch him while you can!"  - NORTON RECORDS

Just back from the HULTSFREED HAYRIDE in Sweden - a killer blast with many friends, old & new, and saw many great bands... This month starts a trek that will see me doing shows in Europe, UK, USA & Canada - playing solo and sometimes doubling on upright bass for HEAVY TRASH - Check dates here .... Got some West Coast dates brewin' for mid August, and some new releases planned, including a new full-length on Norton!

 

 

APRIL  2015

Just back from VIVA LAS VEGAS - and with my brain still fried from that, I head out this week on a big tour of the U.S. !  Opening many shows for the JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION!  Check dates here and hope to see ya!

 

MARCH  2014

Just back from a super fun trip around France and Switzerland, playing upright (bass, that is - not piano!) for HEAVY TRASH, as well as doing my own opening set on most nights. Really havin' a ball playin that bass with them, and it looks like we'll get to do it again in July around Belgium, UK and France. Gonna be heading to Texas for SXSW later this month, looking forward to it - haven't been to TX in about 10 years! Also, stoked to be heading to VIVA LAS VEGAS to play at the launch of Shannon Brookes' new book of pin up photography - GIRLS! After that, gonna hit the road opening some shows for the JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION - even hitting a few U.S. towns I've never been to, so naturally, pretty stoked about that. Tons more fun comin' in 2015 - CAN NOT WAIT!!

"He’s made scads of solid senders all over the globe, but here’s the one man racket squad’s first full length Norton platter and we think it’s his best offering to date! THUNDER AND LIGHTNING features brand new Bloodshot Bill-penned rockers like Crazy ‘Bout The Girl and The Hunt plus killer remakes of Tooter Boatman’s title thumper and Eddie Cochran’s brooding Dark Lonely Street – GET THIS ALBUM!"
Available at Norton Records, cool record shops and at shows!
