Bill Worrell is an internationally touring guitarist, composer, singer, songwriter, and producer. His recent tour credits include lead guitarist for the Grammy Award winning band, America.
Bill's music combines rock, blues, and progressive rock.
Born in Pasadena, CA, Bill grew up in the music industry. His father, Jeff Worrell, played lead guitar for Natalie Cole throughout the 1980’s. During the 90’s, his dad switched gears into live mixing and went on to work with artists such as Edgar Winter, Fleetwood Mac, Pat Benatar, Dave Mason, Sheena Easton, Bread, and currently America. “These people were always around the house”, says Bill. “Mike Botts from Bread gave me my first drum lesson and Neil Giraldo showed me how to play my first barre chords”. Bill eventually went on tour himself with the Grammy-winning classic rock group, America.
Today, Bill records and performs extensively.
In 2016, he released his solo "Nashville Sessions" EP, produced by Fred Mollin (Michael McDonald, America, BB King). The album featured session musicians Shannon Forrest on drums, Pat Coil on keys, Kerry Marx on rhythm guitars, and Larry Paxton on bass.
In early 2017, Bill released a collection of mostly instrumentals recorded over the years, called “Time to Change”. This marked a return to instrumental guitar compositions, although tracks such as “Time to Change”, “Jaded”, and “Done” include vocals.
In 2018, he released the singles "The New World Times", “Crashing Down”, and “I Wanna Fly [Single]”.
