BILL SCORZARI —THROUGH THESE WAVES (Self-Released)

www.billscorzari.com

 

Americana singer-songwriter Bill Scorzari’s writes pin-sharp lyrics that take the listener on many a memorable journey. Through landscapes not only of the world, but those awash in conflicting emotions. His songs are of the kind to give you shelter in a world heavily biased towards monetary success, and or others of shallow dug foundations. Steeped in carefully constructed melodies, and precision perfect that on occasions are halting to give effect Scorzari is one unique and considerable talent. Owner of one of the most unique, raspy toned singing voices currently working he draws in the listener.  

 

His journeys are warmed in shuffling, beautifully textured melodies. Enriched in the sensitive playing of Joachim Cooder, Jon Estes, Brent Burke, Eamon McLaughlin, Matt Murphy, Jonah Tolchin (and producer), Kyle Tuttle, Will Kimbrough, Danny Roaman, Chris Scruggs, Laur Joamets and his own (acoustic guitar) it is enough on some tracks to leave one star-struck. Adding to the above are background vocals from Cindy Walker and Marie Lewey, plus second vocalists Kim Richey on “A Brand New Deal” and Annie Johnson on “More Of Your Love” ensure perfection itself is not only obtained but hung onto. 

 

What a mighty fine ensemble you have, and with everything laid out carefully (not least the lyrics) and nothing in excess, but at the same time primed with energy the album never falters. As you have dancing fiddle, melodious Dobro and banjo (“A Brand New Deal”) and a tight rhythm section plus guitar supply everything Scorzari’s lyrics require. 

 

Recorded over thirteen days at the famed Bomb Shelter in East Nashville under the guidance of Tolchin New York native Scorzari has struck gold on what is only his second album, Through These Waves. Rich in deceptive beauty the image strewn creations drip with gracefulness, that are of the kind that edge, erroneously into one’s subconscious. Far from being one-paced Scorzari is forever throwing in exciting variances. “Hound Dog Diggin’ is one such case as he is propelled in an energy driven moment. When it comes to songs of special note his music hits a regal high on “More Of Your Love”, beautifully engaging it is steeped in a melody and harmony vocals of the kind that plead to be played again and again.

 

it is followed in the running order by the superb “Holy Man” and sombre “She Don’t Care About Auld Lang Syne”, and with the likes of his superb piece of philosophy “I Can Carry This” he continues with some excellent music. Although some tracks on face value might sound and feel rather solemn the songs are at the same time uplifting. He style of music occasionally reminds me of Sam Baker, the wistfulness and precise nature of the songs and wondrous beauty, and arguably his greatest attribute honesty the record is one of the finest I have stumbled across in a long time. On the flip side to the slow, pondering tunes Scorzari near enough puts on his dancing shoes for the infectious fiddle (and dobro) warmed “For When I Didn’t See”, and with it sounding slightly cajun-ish the music is enough to brighten the darkest of days. If nothing else it provides a contrast to the sombre “Loser At Heart”, and on realizing he needs to make decisions “It’s Time”. “Riptide” which he closes with contains the grace and underlying beauty the listener has now become accustomed to. Producer Tolchin on this evidence looks set to become a man artists looking for something special will gravitate to.
