About Billy Crockett

Billy Crockett is an award-winning guitarist and songwriter from Texas. Having been a Nashville session man, a full-time touring artist for 25 years, and a studio producer, Crockett continues to make it new. Love for the guitar and a refreshing honesty has been his trademark across four decades of celebrated albums and concerts. Crockett’s main gig for the last 10 years has been producer, mentor, and creative director of Blue Rock Artist Ranch and Studio, a top-level recording facility, artist retreat, and performance space on 27 acres in the Texas Hill Country. He has produced albums for some of music’s vital artists, edits a journal on creative process, and hosts a popular concert series.

Crockett studied jazz at North Texas State University and earned a degree in music engineering at the University of Miami before touring Mexico and Venezuela with Latin pop star José Luis (“El Puma”) Rodriguez. In Nashville, in the mid ’80s, Crockett was a session guitarist, staff songwriter for a major publishing house, and recorded his first of several artist albums. He has been featured on the BMI songwriter panel at Austin’s SXSW Music Festival, Artist-in-Residence at the Academy of Gospel Music Arts, and has been a guitar clinician for Yamaha International. He also holds a master’s of Liberal Arts degree from Southern Methodist University.

Crockett’s aptly titled Passages (Blue Rock Artists, 2006), is an album of original classical guitar pieces. His follow-up album, Wishing Sky, features folk-pop story-songs and appearances by Jon Dee Graham, Ray Bonneville, Pierce Pettis, and Lloyd Maines. A new Crockett album and tour is in the works for 2016.
