Billy lives in the mountains of Lyons, Colorado. He works in a studio in his home he calls “The Gulch”. He is a registered Civil Engineer in the states of California and Colorado. Although he rarely signs his name “William Shaddox, PE” these days, he does enjoy a good technical problem. Billy is a husband and father. He is a creator, a storyteller, a musician, a painter, a dreamer, and a Gemini
Billy is blessed with the ability to blend the western dualities of coastal dreamer and high mountain drifter into his deep, easy flowing songs. This is modern American folk music with pop sensibilities.
Rooted in stories of love and fortune lost, perspective and enlightenment gained, Billy captures the mystique of the West with indelible lyrical imagery and sharply original musicality: the displaced modern man weary of coping with vanishing ideals, the present-minded realist, the uncontrollable jealousy of the downtrodden miner, and the bright-eyed morning traveler setting out to make his mark on the world.
The Billy Shaddox Band features Oliver Jacobson on fiddle, Gilbran Chong on drums, and Chad Mathis on bass.
