Billy Shaw Band Bio

Tucson native Billy Shaw Jr’s signature black-framed glasses scream mild-mannered Clark Kent, but when he puts bow to fiddle, he transforms into a Country Music Superman. By day, Billy Shaw Jr is a patient yet outgoing geek. At night, the virtuoso transforms an unassuming stage with his unique Soulful Southwestern Rock Country sound. As a shy fourth grader, the musician-in-training focused on classical violin style. In college, Billy expanded his musical repertoire to include guitar, bass, drums, mandolin, harmonica, and a mean tambourine. Through Church Shaw realized he enjoyed singing and found his true calling when he took the stage at a karaoke contest. A few contest wins later, he joined a band. 8 years later, his strings and vocals have been heard across his hometown with a number of groups. In 2016 after winning Cumulus Radio’s Nash Next Country Star locally, he went on to place Top 8 in the Nation, and then started his namesake band. The Billy Shaw Jr Band has quickly become one of the most highly sought after acts in town and continued the winning tradition as Arizona’s 2017 Nash Next Winner. Friends call Billy a “High Tech Redneck (Mayberry meets Star Trek},” after the George Jones song. His smooth emotion-filled raspy vocals are as unique as his nickname. Add the pure joy he brings every show, fans can continue to look forward to fun concerts for many years to come. Billy Shaw Jr is joined by an all-star cast of bandmates: Laki Skouras - Guitar/Vocals, Justin Volpe - Bass/Vocals and Robyn Faber - Drums/Vocals.
