Billy Strings (William Apostol) is an American guitarist and bluegrass musician, born in Lansing, Michigan.

Bill’s stepfather introduced him to the bluegrass music of Doc Watson, Del McCoury, David Grisman, Bill Monroe, John Hartford, Ralph Stanley, Earl Scruggs, and Larry Sparks.

Apostol got his moniker, Billy Strings, from his aunt, who saw his ability on multiple traditional bluegrass instruments.

The International Bluegrass Music Association awarded him with the 2016 Momentum Award for Instrumentalist of the year.

Rolling Stone named Strings one of the Top Ten New Country Artists to Know in 2017. In February 2017, Billy was named one of the six new rising stars of bluegrass by Acoustic Guitar.
His touring band consists of Billy Failing (Banjo), Royal Masat (Bass), and Jarrod Walker (Mandolin). He was signed to Rounder Records in June 2019.

Strings released his album, “Home”, under the label on September 27, 2019. It became his most successful release yet, reaching number one on the Heatseekers Albums and Bluegrass Albums charts.
