Bill Morris is a songwriter with his roots in the alpine dirt of New Zealand’s South Island. His music strikes out for a new frontier of New Zealand folk music, drawing on influences from around the world. His songs are built on raw poignancy and a literate heart. Lyrics and storytelling are key to his songs, whether folk songs of New Zealand's past or travel-influenced narratives. His musical influences range widely and include songwriters like Kev Carmody, Paul Kelly, Lucinda Williams, Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson. Bill’s self-produced debut album, “Mud” was released in 2012 and he is about to release his second album, “Hinterland.” He is currently touring with the Hinterland band, which is composed of some of Dunedin's finest musicians, including members of the Chaps, Delgirl and the Donna Dean band.

“Bill’s songs stick to you like mud; think Billy Bragg or Paul Kelly. His gritty presentation and wry observation make for compelling listening.” -New Edinburgh Folk Club, Dunedin

“packed with terse, literal detail....t
hese songs rock persuasively.” -
Nick Bollinger, The Sampler, Radio New Zealand
