BILL BARBER, at just 21, is one of the most exciting young artists in the thriving Victorian Blues scene.

In 2012, Bill won the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society (MBAS) “Youth In Blues” competition, resulting in him performing at festivals across Victoria. These included the Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival, and the End of the Line Festival. He has since gone on to perform at many more blues events and has acted a booker for youth stages at various festivals.

In March 2016, Bill released his first album, “Thanks For Your Consideration” accompanied by his first Victorian tour. Bill was the 2017 MBAS Solo/Duo Blues Performer of the Year, representing the MBAS at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis (USA) in January 2018.

Bill has also received an endorsement from Cole Clark Guitars, one of Australia’s leading guitar manufacturers.
