Nettwerk Music Group is excited to announce the signing of Canadian singer, songwriter, and producer Billy Raffoul. Based in Toronto and Nashville, Raffoul’s voice echoes with a graceful grit that comes right from the gut as he tells stories straight from the heart. His latest single, “Better,” is a moving introduction to the new chapter of music he has created while writing and recording with longtime creative cohorts Justin Zuccato and Mike Crossey during the pandemic. “Better” is simply a lush love song featuring Raffoul’s delicately plucked acoustic guitar paired with his soft intimate vocals. It’s available at all digital retailers tomorrow, September 2nd, here: https://billyraffoul.ffm.to/better.

Billy shares, “For me, ‘Better’ is about treating someone with kindness regardless of everything else. It’s a simple, familiar, and feel-good song.”
