**DUO SHOW WITH JOHNNY PISANO**

 

Described by the New York Times as “one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years", luminaries such as Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, and Little Steven are among those to have sung the praises of Willie Nile.

 

Winner of the Independent Music Awards' “Best Rock Album of the Year” with 'American Ride' in 2013 and subsequent albums receiving accolades galore, he is enjoying something of a late-career renaissance.

 

Willie has toured across the U.S. with The Who and has sung with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. As the induction program from the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame says: “His live performances are legendary.” His latest (and 12th) studio album 'Children of Paradise' was released in 2018 to universal acclaim. The song "Seeds Of A Revolution" was named "Coolest Song In The World" by Little Steven's Underground Garage.

    The New York Times called Willie Nile “one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years.” His album Streets Of New York was hailed as “a platter for the ages” by UNCUT magazine. Rolling Stone listed The Innocent Ones as one of the “Top Ten Best Under-The-Radar Albums of 2011” and BBC Radio called it “THE rock ‘n’ roll album of the year.”

    Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, and Little Steven are among those who have sung his praises. His album, American Ride, won “Best Rock Album of the Year” at the Independent Music Awards. It appeared on over one hundred year-end Top Ten lists for 2013 and Bono called it, “One of the great guides to unravelling the mystery that is the troubled beauty of America.”

    In November 2014 he released an album of piano-based songs, If I Was A River, to universal critical acclaim. “One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past thirty years,” said The New Yorker. No Depression raved “Willie Nile’s artistic renaissance continues unabated.”

    His 2016 album World War Willie appeared on numerous year-end top ten lists as did hid his live shows. As American Songwriter said, “Nile cranks up the volume and tears into these tunes with the same hunger, passion and exuberance he displays in his legendary sweat-soaked shows.” World War Willie was voted “Album Of The Year” by Twangville Magazine and the song Forever Wild was named “Coolest Song In The World” by Little Steven’s Underground Garage. In 2017 he released the critically acclaimed album Positively Bob – Willie Nile Sings Bob Dylan.

    Willie has toured across the U.S. with The Who and has sung with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. As the induction program from the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame says: “His live performances are legendary.” His 12th studio album was just released called Children of Paradise and he is bringing his dynamic live show to 2018 audiences worldwide!
