Billy Strings

Born William Apostol in 1992 in Lansing, Michigan, Billy Strings, as the name suggests, is a master of the guitar, banjo, and mandolin. Raised in a family well rooted in music, he was surrounded by acoustic melodies from the get go.

At just four years old, he received his first guitar and began honing his skills. He was inspired by his step-father Terry Barber and uncle, both of whom are accomplished musicians. At six years old, he joined his dad for bluegrass picking parties, and along the line earned the moniker Billy Strings.

However, as a teenager, he briefly veered into heavy metal music, which led him into a circle of substance abuse. But, thankfully, recognizing the dangerous path he was on, he returned to his bluegrass roots and sought a better, healthier and safer path to mental freedom.

After high school, Billy moved to Traverse CityMichigan, where he buried himself in the vibrant music scene. His talent quickly caught the attention of local musicians, and he found a mentor in mandolinist Don Julin. Together, they released the duo album Rock of Ages. His solo career took off with the release of his independent album Fiddle Tune X in 2014.

In 2016, Billy moved to NashvilleTennessee, where his talent flourished even further. His debut solo album, Turmoil & Tinfoil, released in 2017, marketed his unique sound and got him critical acclaim. This was followed by his Grammy-winning album Home in 2019.

Billy Strings’ Discographic Achievements

Billy Strings' debut solo album, Turmoil & Tinfoil (2017), introduced his eclectic mix of bluegrass, rock, and psychedelia. The follow-up, Home, not only topped the Billboard Bluegrass albums chart but also earned him a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album.

His next release, Renewal (2021), reflected his songwriting growth. With it, he went into darker and more personal themes while expanding the instrumental palette of his band. The album got him another Grammy nomination, reaffirming his status as a topping figure in contemporary bluegrass music.

In 2022, William started a special project with his stepfather, Terry Barber. This resulted in the collaborative album Me/And/Dad, which was recorded at Nashville's Sound Emporium. The album celebrated their shared musical heritage and featured esteemed musicians such as Jerry DouglasRon McCoury, and Rob McCoury.

Throughout his career, Strings has pushed the boundaries of traditional bluegrass music, infusing it with elements of rock, jazz, and psychedelia. His virtuosic instrumentalism, poignant songwriting, and binding stage presence have earned him a dedicated following within the music industry.
