ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The 2nd BILLY T BAND CD continues in the same vein as their debut album (A Little Mixed Up – BIGHCD0701), with a collection of songs steeped in Classic American Soul, Blues, R&B and Swamp Rock. This time the main focus is on the original songs written by BILLY T and the band, and as on the first CD, cover versions of a few obscure nuggets from Bill’s ”wasted youth”. In addition, there is Sven Zetterberg, (Sweden’s, and maybe Europe’s, most soulful blues singer), singing two killer duets with Bill and playing some of his trademark ”low down” guitar. (http://www.svenzetterberg.com)

Bill was born and raised in New York City, and played and recorded with Eddie ”Bluesman” Kirkland for 12 years, and the Tom Russell Band for 10 years. Along the way , he worked with such diverse artists as Lightning Hopkins and Nancy Griffith.

After moving to Oslo Norway in 1997, Billy T ran the house band at the ”Muddy Waters” blues club for 7 years, helping to launch the young Norwegian talents Amund Maarud and Kid Andersen (now with Rick Estrin & the Nightcats). At ”Muddy Waters” they had the opportunity to backup a respectable number of famous blues musicians, including Homesick James, Nappy Brown, Willie ”Big Eyes” Smith, Bill Sims and Tad Robinson, to name a few.

”Muddy’s” has closed, but the band plays on. As well as William (Bill) Troiani on the bass and vocals, the BILLY T BAND packs a lot of talent in Ian Fredrick Johannessen and Haakon Hoeye on guitars, and the eminent drummer Robert Alexander Pettersen, (the youngest member of the band). Years of ”gigs” has earned the band friends and fans from as far away as Moscow and New York City, with Oslo in the middle.

Bill and the boys played on Louisiana Red’s critically acclaimed release ”Back to the Black Bayou”; nominated for two Blues Awards in 2010. ( http://www.louisiana-red.com )
