The singer has gained a regional following in Tucson
Tucson, Arizona resident and lover of all things nerd-like, Billy Shaw Jr., has a knack for music making. He is a singer, songwriter, and can play the hell out of a fiddle. He is the go to guy for Tucson’s country music entertainment and is well known (and loved!) around town.
Shaw grew up listening to artists such as Willie Nelson and Kenny Rogers. However, his unique version of “Pour Some Sugar On Me” resonates a rocker side to his soulful country sound.
Known as the Clark Kent of Country Music, his geek tendencies totally disappear while on stage. Shaw knows how to charm a room, with his thick black framed glasses and fiddle in hand, he nails each and every track aimlessly. Shaw is also a seasoned musician playing harmonica, bass, drums and mandolin. His band members include Laki Skouras on lead vocals and guitar, AJ Gonzales on harmony and guitar and Carlos Solozano on drums. Shaw is recently the Nash Next Tucson Finalist and will move on to the next round.
