Billy Chernoff is as real as the wide open spaces of the American west. His music could be described as "Ashphalt Western", and the songs he writes, are contemporary standards.
A native of Grand Forks, British Columbia, Billy draws from a rich background of experiences - grooming and exercising race horses, rough-necking in the Alberta oil fields, riding bareback horses, clowning and working barrel in Oregon and Nevada.
Billy is more than a studio musician/artist, and his music can adapt readily to a guitar-vocal around the campfire. He writes about cowboys, outlaws and banditos, yet hidden in these characters are pieces and experiences of ourselves and our imaginations. His music invokes images of the west, and it is as refreshing as a cool breeze on a hot summer day.
Sometimes the music business can take the music right out of an artist. But for Billy Chernoff, the music is an element so vital to who he is, that he continues to perform his art for the music's sake.
Billy W. Chernoff didn't bury his talent, nor did he make it dependent on money or business deals. His art is a true expression of the gift God gave him, and it only gets better as time and life weave their stories into the heart of the music.
