Bill and Hyram geologists small“Bill’s songs stick to you like mud; think Billy Bragg or Paul Kelly. His gritty presentation and wry observation make for

compelling listening.”
-Richard Dingwall, New Edinburgh Folk Club, Dunedin NZ



“packed with terse, literal detail….
these songs rock persuasively.”

- Nick Bollinger, The Sampler, Radio New Zealand


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, twisted humour and a literate heart. Bill’s self-produced debut album, “Mud” was released in 2012 and he is currently recording his second album with producer John Egenes at the helm.

“….channels pastoral rock, gentle folk and electric guitar-edged alt-pop
into an  energetic, eclectic brew-up that offers both focus and freedom.”  ****
