Billy Raffoul Releases Cathartic New Album, ‘For All These Years’; Currently on US Headline Tour

October 20, 2023 BY Emma Orland

Nashville/Toronto soulful singer, songwriter, and producer Billy Raffoul is excited to share his new full-length album, For All These Years. This record came to life with the help of long-time collaborators and friends, Justin Zuccato and Mike Crossey. In one breath, Billy will bust down the door with a riff-powered rock ‘n’ roll anthem. In the next, he’ll introspectively recall a formative memory as his delivery barely breaks a whisper atop acoustic guitar. One song will make you think, and another will make you swing and shake your hips as he tells stories straight from the heart.

 “I want you to hear and feel everything I do….’For All These Years’ encompasses the acoustic moments, the storyteller moments, and the really rambunctious rock moments. It was important for me to show all of those dynamics.” – Billy Raffoul

For All These Years showcases Billy’s spirit from every angle. It can be found on all digital platforms here.









Billy is currently celebrating the new collection of music with a headline North American fall tour. He’ll be making stops in Los Angeles at Peppermint ClubNashville at Exit/InNew York at Mercury Lounge, and more before wrapping up in Boston at Cafe 939. A list of full dates can be found below.

Hailing from the small town of Leamington, Billy Raffoul initially watched his dad, Jody Raffoul, captivate local audiences as an active professional singer, songwriter, and performer. Eventually, Billy grabbed a guitar and never put it down. Emerging in 2017 with his first single “Driver,” he unveiled music at a prolific pace, including the 1975 EP, The Running Wild EP, Live In June, and his 2020 full-length LP, A Few More Hours at YYZ. The single “Acoustic” gathered north of 70.2 million Spotify streams, while “Easy Tiger” tallied over 22.9 million Spotify streams. He shined on stage, performing on bills alongside Kings of Leon, Phoenix, Kaleo, X Ambassadors, and NEEDTOBREATHE, to name a few. Honored for his craft, he picked up the 2021 SOCAN Songwriting Prize for “Western Skies” and the 2023 INDIES “Song of the Year” for “We Could Get High.”
