Shaver is truly one of the most respected living figures in American music. Bob Dylan, who rarely covers other writers, has often played Billy Joe‘s “Old Five And Dimers Like Me” in concert. Johnny Cash called him “my favorite songwriter.” The Washington Post noted, “when the country outlaws were collecting their holy writings, Billy Joe Shaver was carving out Exodus.”
This Donegal man has drawn great inspiration from the culture and passion of New Orleans, which he connected with soon after first arriving there, rapidly establishing a loyal fan base. He has recorded and performed with legendary New Orleans musicians George Porter, Jr. (The Meters) and Mean Willie Green (Neville Brothers Band, Bob Dylan). In addition, worked with Grammy-nominated record producer Warren Huart on his debut album, Off The Grid, cultivating his passion, and showcasing Burns’ narrative songwriting, unique vocals and soulful delivery.
