Video Premiere: Bill Scorzari "I-70 East"

Americana Highways is hosting this premiere of Bill Scorzari’s song “I-70 East” from his forthcoming release The Crosswinds of KansasThe Crosswinds of Kansas was produced by Bill Scorzari and Neilson Hubbard; mixed by Dylan Alldredge, Neilson Hubbard and Bill Scorzari; recorded at First Thunder Recording Studios, [New York] and at Skinny Elephant Recording, Nashville. It was mastered by Jim DeMaine at Yes Master Studio, Nashville. Album design was created by Anna Berman with photography by Jacob Blickenstaff.
“I-70 East” is Bill Scorzari on vocals, acoustic and electric guitars; Danny Mitchell on Hammond B3 organ; Michael Rinne on electric bass; and Neilson Hubbard on drums and percussion. Music, singing, and scenes from the drive characterize the video. We only slowly learn the nature of the drive toward fearful hope of rescue and renewed safety. A mother’s love, hopefully, is our first and truest foundational love. And it can provide steady open arms when romantic love fails and betrays. It’s about this that Scorzari has written in this, his amalgamation song of the anguished parallels between an elderly mother fading and passing on, and a lover’s betrayal. He’s captured such pain. And the beauty of a Rose... CLICK HERE FOR FULL PREMIERE AND "I-70 EAST" VIDEO LINK

Bill Scorzari Independently Releases The Crosswinds of Kansas August 19, 2022

“... Scorzari, a prolific songwriter, has taken his craft to new heights and deeper depths with his 4th studio album, The Crosswinds of Kansas which will be independently released on August 19.

Much of The Crosswinds of Kansas was inspired by his three-month-long Now I’m Free Tour in 2019—which had become a journey of self discovery, with Bill ultimately arriving at a new awareness and desire to adapt and continue to create. He had made his way from the east coast, toward, and around the west coast and back, traveling under two full moons, visiting waterfalls, hiking, climbing, pondering and processing his life experiences of loss, gain and change, and at times composed haiku as a way to pass the time on the long drives between performances, until the tour came to an unexpected early end when Bill learned of the sudden decline in the health of his then 94 year old mother back home in NY.

Bill started his four-day drive home back east from California; when he got to Kansas on the second day, the winds were blowing so hard North and South across I-70 East that he had to fight the steering wheel for hours just to keep his car going straight down the highway. He stopped in Hays, KS for the night and woke up the next morning with a sore neck and arms from wrestling those tenacious crosswinds the day before. The following lines came to him while he was driving, “Then, came the crosswinds of Kansas unleashed, and it pushed me hard, north and south, all down I-70 east… As I tore home to my mother, before her health, it would fail, at 94, I felt another love leaving me lost, like a nail in a cross.” ...With Scorzari drawing inspiration from a full palette of moods and emotions, the 13 original tracks on The Crosswinds of Kansas have many stories to tell...   Grateful Web - Full Article
