Release - Smoke & The Earthtones

Smoke & The Earthtones (2021)

Bill Rotella

"Smoke & The Earthtones" is Bill Rotella's 14th studio album. Written and recorded during quarantine 2020, this album contains 11 new songs and a bonus track written by Bill's father and recorded by Slim Whitman in 1960. Grounded from cancelled tours, The Earthtones recorded in the round and really captured the feel and sound of the '70's. Also available on vinyl.

Bill Rotella - The Other Side (Lyric Video)

"Bill Rotella's "The Other Side" single is blistering....... Rotella delivers his message with bluesy riffing, an ominous harmonica, and a country-rock locomotive backbeat. This is socio-political fisticuffs with the soulful power of Jackson Browne and Bruce Cockburn." - Harry Watters, Wavelength LA.
