Album Notes
"... An amazing touch, killer tone and a sense of taste
that can't be beat."
-Vintage Guitar Magazine

Applauded by critics and guitar enthusiasts alike for
his composition, tone, emotion and smooth "multi-part"
style, Tennessee guitarist Bill Mize is a past winner
of The National Finger- style Guitar Competition at
The Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas.
Guitar Player Magazine has labeled this event the
“U.S. Open of guitar competitions.

Bill received a Grammy Award for his collaboration
with David Holt on the recording Stellaluna, as well
as being featured on the popular
guitar compilations Windham Hill Guitar Sampler by
Windham Hill Records and Masters of the Acoustic
Guitar by Narada Records. John August Music/Mel Bay
Productions have transcribed Mize's second cd, Tender
Explorations, into a songbook.

Bill is a frequent clinician / performer at guitar
festivals including the
Healdsburg Guitar Festival in California, The Newport
Guitar Festival in RI, Swannanoa Gathering in North
Carolina, and Steve
Kaufmann's Guitar Camp in Tennessee. His original
music represents his eastern Tennessee roots, varying from delicate appalachian highland melodies to greasy Memphis grooves.

"Dale Miller of Acoustic Guitar Magazine
writes"...Mize's tone is lovely and his technique is
state-of-the-art. He combines form and substance to
create music so sublime and accessible I was almost
sighing out loud."
Stephen Ide of Dirty Linen Magazine writes "... To
call Mize a guitar maestro would be understating his ability
to transport listeners beyond what most guitarists can
only hope to accomplish."
Bill Milkowski of Jazziz Magazine writes "... Mize's
touch is magic. His ideas flow in rapid succession
throughout this acoustic guitar showcase. “
