The Prism Coffeehouse is delighted to announce the return of Grammy-winning guitarist Bill Mize, a son of Tennessee, and a fitting representative of his state’s rich musical heritage. His critically lauded fingerstyle compositions are fluid and intricate, and their delivery masterful. One suspects an influential teacher, and one would be right. “I received most of my musical education from a cheap Zenith radio,” says Mize, who as a child drifted off to sleep to the decidedly non-sleepy lullabyes emanating from Nashville’s WLAC and WSM and Knoxville’s WNOX . Maybe that’s why critics speak of his ability to “transport” the listener; the music itself has been transported.

Bill is a past winner of the National Fingerstyle Guitar Competition at The Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas, and has been featured on the popular guitar compilations “Windham Hill Guitar Sampler” by Windham Hill Records and “Masters of the Acoustic Guitar” by Narada Records. In 2009. Bill’s music appeared in the Ken Burns documentary “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.”

Bill has six critically acclaimed cds including the recent, “The Back of Beyond” …”music for those who aren’t in a hurry but seek to imbibe at the well of good taste and style.”.. .Minor 7th Guitar Reviews

“ Guitars pine for the fingers of Bill Mize who makes them weep, sing and roll around like a cat at his feet. Thumpin’ good acoustic majesty!”-WDVX, Knoxville
