Country boy-turned beach rat teenager-turned city boy-turned young dad. That would be the fastest way to describe life so far for 21 year old Bill Roberts.
Bill first picked up a guitar when he was 5 years old, and learnt various styles over the years, but truly started to find the sound he now calls his own when he moved from rural NSW to coastal Port Macquarie. At 16 he started busking on the streets and playing local open mic nights, which quickly progressed to paid gigs in local venues like The Beach House, The Pier and Blue-water amongst others.
This is where Bill first started to write his own songs, a few of which he compiled into his debut EP, “Rooms For The Future” in 2013. From there after finishing high school, he expanded his search for supporting venues and has toured the Mid-North Coast ever since, which allowed him to explore his sound as a solo acoustic artist, commonly compared to the likes of artists like John Mayer, Ben Howard and Jack Johnson.
After a stint in Melbourne in 2015, Bill has taken the time to write a hoard of new songs and is now touring and expanding more and more.
