Bloodshot Bill

Winner of the 2020 Ameripolitan Rockabilly Male Of The Year award, Bloodshot Bill is "like Roy Orbison with a head injury," says director John Waters. Sometimes solo, sometimes with a band, he's released a ton of music over the last 20 years, and was voted #8 in Vintage Rock Magazine's Top 10 Rockin' Guitarists.

BLOODSHOT BILL started in his hometown of Montreal around 1998, with just a guitar and a stomp board. Since then, he's shouted, snorted, cooed, and crooned his way through the wild shadowland of primitive rock and roll, touring the world and collaborating with heavyweights like The 5.6.7.8.'s, Jon Spencer, King Khan, beat poet Charles Plymell, Mark Sultan, Deke Dickerson, and Shannon Shaw of Shannon & The Clams.

Seventeen albums and over two-dozen singles later, this unstoppable Montrealeño has not slowed his manic touring and recording schedule one whit. He’s a seminal punk, a true wildman who blazes his own path to honky tonk hell with a bottomless repertoire of desperate rock and roll and insatiable R&B. That means he knows a lotta songs -- not that he doesn’t wear pants. But on the right night, who knows!

Bloodshot Bill's whacked-out take on rockabilly stroll and early R&B begins where Charlie Feathers' cryptic mumble meets Bobby Lee Trammell's uninhibited beat and then goes scampering down dark alleys beyond genres... plus, like, it's catchy as hell!
