Best New Sound 2020 Nomination – Day 5: Billy Roberts And The Rough Riders

 Best New Sound 2020 Nomination – Day 5: Billy Roberts And The Rough Riders

Our annual quest for the best returns!

Posted in randomized order, the nominations for the SBS Best New Sound of 2020 get revealed from Dec. 6th – 15th!

Join us in congratulating our official nomination of day 05 – Billy Roberts And The Rough Riders!

In having reviewed the music of Billy Roberts And The Rough Riders here at our homepage eight ways from Sunday since back in 2014 – we’ve had both the honor and privilege of being able to listen to the evolution of their music and get to know it far more than most that tends to come our way.  While there’s always been a grizzled charm to Wild Bill’s vocals and genuine strengths in the material revealed throughout the years – 2020 brought their past into the present in an absolutely stunning way, via the revitalized lineup of songs from their catalog throughout the stellar set-list on The Southern Sessions.  In a passion project that saw the band take their old tunes and shine them up even brighter – The Southern Sessions has been on my short-list since January of this year and handily withstood the leagues of submissions to follow throughout the year.  It’s a record to be extremely proud of, start to finish, and that’s exactly why they’re here.
