Fourth album
THE CROSSWINDS OF KANSAS
Released August 19, 2022 

"...Scorzari’s message is powerful and profound. The raspy, emotive voice and the chanting ruminations throughout are a joy... this listener cannot get enough of “All Behind Me Now”, “Try, Try Again” and the eleven-minute glorious, meditative opus “Tryin’, Tryin’, Tryin’, Tryin'”. Oh, and “Patience and Time” might well be the most tender and loving song I’ve heard this year. 
...The Crosswinds of Kansas is an indisputable triumph and presented in a lavish, detailed CD package, which was an utter joy to review."

"BILL SCORZARI IS A MASTER STORYTELLER. HE PUTS IT TO MUSIC AND CREATES PURE MAGIC!!"
THE COLFAX CHRONICLE JAY VEE MUSIC REVIEW by Jeff Vallet / July 22, 2022

"...His voice is the essential heart of his music and of this album as it delivers his thoughtful, crafted lyrics in a way very few others could... It is the kind of music that envelopes you. ...something that tends to bring you closer to its heart with frequent listening."

"The Crosswinds of Kansas? Another level. …Each song envelopes the listener, sharing its secrets and truths. …Man, to have been gifted such concise wisdom…
…there is always something new to capture your attention, something previously missed that reveals itself as it must. …I’ve not discovered many albums the quality of The Crosswinds of Kansas this year. I think that speaks more about Bill Scorzari than it does to what I’ve been listening to. A masterful creation…”
-Fervor Coulee by Donald Teplyske / August 4, 2022

"Singer, songwriter, Americana hypnotist Bill Scorzari effortlessly captivates with his forthcoming 'The Crosswinds of Kansas'... If you're familiar with his work at all, this will come as no surprise." " ...Scorzari’s vocals immediately grab hold of your attention with this or any of his previous work, bleeding with honesty and conviction while gravelly capturing your imagination... The mixed textures of Crosswinds spellbind ...will have you diving into the lyrics, the assemblies, and contributions of each of the thirteen tracks. ...in a testament to the collective artistry and vision of Scorzari and supporting fifteen musicians. ...Bill Scorzari is more than Americana or some offshoot of country. ...He is a songwriter, years from now the next mainstream rock success will reference as a turning point discovery in their life. To review Bill Scorzari seems counter-intuitive. Scorzari’s music reflects against your own experiences... It makes sense to the roads you’ve travelled and the emotions you’ve felt. It is precisely that connection that makes Bill Scorzari more than a singer-songwriter, he is a modern gem and deserves to [be] recognized as such. The Crosswinds of Kansas is no exception, it is yet another exhibit to reinforce the sentiment. ..." -NANOBOT ROCK / August 12, 2022

"The Crosswinds of Kansas… from New York–based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Bill Scorzari… may be his best yet. That’s saying plenty given the excellence of such earlier efforts as 2017’s Through These Waves and 2019’s Now I’m Free. Scorzari’s raspy vocals... add weight to his wise, poetic lyrics and contrast beautifully with the album’s frequently sweet-sounding music… Songs like “All Behind Me Now” and “Inside My Heart” will have you hanging on every word and wondering why Scorzari isn’t famous yet." -AMERICANA HIGHWAYS by Jeff Burger / August 12, 2022

“Bill Scorzari has done it again. This writer finds it remarkable that the New York-based singer-songwriter and former trial lawyer could produce works as strong as his 2017 Through These Waves and 2019 Now I’m Free but his Crosswinds of Kansas is every bit their equal and maybe just a tad better. We throw around terms like a “songwriter’s songwriter” and Scorzari fits that to a tee. ...a blend of prose and poetry put to music, a Walt Whitman of sorts for our times. …” -Glide Magazine BY JIM HYNES / August 18, 2022

SELECTED PRESS FROM PREVIOUS RELEASES:
 
Billboard’s Gary Graff says, Bill Scorzari’s third release, “Now I’m Free,” is “delicately nuanced” with “detailed arrangements.” "...Scorzari had good reason to enjoy the recording process this time around."
 
"Bill Scorzari is a force. His songwriting is stellar, his picking above par and his voice fits his songs perfectly."
NO DEPRESSION [Reviewing "Through These Waves" 2017]
 
"With his third album, Now I’m Free, New York-based singer-songwriter Bill Scorzari transcends titles like songwriter or poet. He catapults past categories into a dark, ruminative, and ultimately life-affirming realm where family folklore, memories, pain, prayer, and incantation meet."
- From the March/April 2020 issue of Acoustic Guitar, By Pat Moran
 
"I love this album. I’m going on record and naming Now I’m Free as the best album of 2019 and I’ll stand on anyone’s coffee table and say it. ...There are poets, there are songwriters, there are painters of fine art, and there’s Bill Scorzari. The new album, Now I’m Free is a bold and delicate balance of each. To say it is a thing of beauty is an understatement. ...Perhaps Dylan or Townes could go toe to toe, but my money’s on Scorzari."
- Making A Scene, By Viola Krouse 
 
"Bill Scorzari scores one of 2019's finest... There may be a handful of songwriters as good as Scorzari but no one else could deliver these stunning songs. It’s even deeper and every bit as good as his last one. Bigger names will get more recognition but Scorzari’s getting there. He did play the Newport Folk Festival this year. He has my vote for Americana Album of the Year."
