When BILL DUTCHER picks up an acoustic guitar, the music that fills the room cannot be branded with a simple sentence. When you see him play live you're experiencing an event that shatters the pre-conceived notion of what a solo acoustic artist is capable of. You're witnessing the fusion of six strings, ten fingers, unorthodox instruments and various electronics blend a unique cocktail of rock, blues, classical, middle-eastern and Celtic flavors into an acoustic symphony. When he walks on stage, all rules are thrown out the window and an improvisational circus explodes before your eyes. Every part of the guitar is fair game as he makes it growl, whine and sing to the pounding percussive pops, slaps and pings that emanate from the guitar.

His vocal ability reaches deep down towards the baritone styling's of Johnny Cash and soars up to the ethereal echoes of Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin. His original lyrics speak of personal experiences that make his songs read like stories from the heart. When performing live, Bill's intensity shines through as he visually assaults the strings and sonically leaves listeners perplexed. Exotic tunings, two-handed tapping and percussive techniques, along with his ability to keep listeners captivated, has won over audiences nationwide. Bill's commitment to music along with his stage experience offers a unique entertainment presentation.
Regular listener's constantly remark about how no two shows are the same. "I love to push the envelope every night, trying to draw in all that is around me and channel that energy through my heart and hands to the audiences' ears," Dutcher comments. He has a sixth sense for the art of reading audiences and playing to the dynamic of a venue. Every show sends listeners away saying, "How can one guy and one guitar do this?"

Press:

"Over the 14 years of touring the world with the CGT, we've shared the stage with many great guitarists. Bill Dutcher is without a doubt one of the finest solo acoustic guitarists I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. Energetic, innovative, excellent compositions, great tone, great player!"
– Paul Richards, California Guitar Trio

2008 Phoenix Music Awards – Best Adult Contemporary Artist of the Year

"Bill Dutcher is able to play all techniques with ease, including a sublime touch of his own as well, in gentle, solid, traditional, and uplifting compositions which are of an exceptionally high level."
– Henk te Veldhuis, Bridge Guitar Reviews
