Biography

About Billy Iuso & Restless Natives
ABOUT BILLY IUSO: Billy Iuso is an accomplished, professional musician – a soulful songwriter, a dynamic vocalist and a powerful guitarist – whose time has arrived. Though still in his 30s, the New Orleans-based performer has been a bandleader for more than 20 years, and as such, his musicianship and abilities have a certain polish and maturity that true music aficionados look for in artists. As he moves into 2007, leading the critically-acclaimed Restless Natives, it’s clear that Iuso possesses that special something to take his band to the next level – an "it" factor that cannot simply be acquired. After leading the highly-popular Brides of Jesus for more than a decade, Iuso (guitar, vocals) came to a decision to make a change shortly after releasing the third Brides album "Saints and Sinners" in the fall of 2002. With the Brides, Iuso had toured and played with some of the biggest names at the forefront of the so-called "Jam-Band" movement of the 1990's, including the Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, George Clinton and the Funky Meters. After fine-tuning their sound and chemistry in post-Katrina New Orleans, Billy Iuso & Restless Natives will begin touring the country aggressively this summer. Bringing the sounds of a career spent in music to the masses is Billy Iuso’s mission … don’t miss the opportunity to be inspired.
