Hello! Bill Shotton has been pleasing listeners for many years with his original blend of imaginative songwriting and unpretentious performances. With mid-western roots, he has branched out to national and international audiences. His artistic integrity comes from not taking the quick and easy path of copying the trends and styles of others but from slowly honing his own musical style and lyric expression.

New Single 

I'm excited to let everyone know about my new single which is out this month through Leesta Vall Recordings. You can purchase a limited edition lathe-cut record for your turn table and with it you get free digital downloads. Side-A is Tonight, the Shit Show, a rollicking take on modern American culture and reality-show politics. Side-B is Mueller Hill, a sad song about a rodeo performer.

What are you going to say when they ask you to tell them who you are?
