1975 continues to receive critical praise:

“Falling somewhere in-between Hozier and James Bay is Billy Raffoul. The 22-year- old knows how to balance poetry with an anthemic, hard rock edge. We’ll definitely be seeing more of this Nashville by Canada troubadour.” –Observer

“Never hiding behind overly-clever production techniques or superfluous furnishings, lyrically or sonically, 1975 paints a brutally honest portrait of Raffoul as a genuine artist.” –Ones To Watch

“His raspy and melodic voice will carry you away and…have you wanting more of his music.” –goodmusicallday.com

“Singer-songwriter Billy Raffoul has been turning heads and garnering attention with his music that combines soulful and passionate vocals with a raw sense of storytelling.” –Anchr Magazine


Raffoul grew up in a creative family in the small farming town of Leamington, Ontario. His mother is an artist, writer and teacher and his father Jody Raffoul is a solo artist and hometown hero who has opened for everyone from Joe Cocker to Bon Jovi. Raffoul’s earliest musical influences come from his dad. “The Beatles were like Jesus in our house,” he recalls, adding that he also listened to soul singers like Otis Redding and Sam Cooke. On his tenth birthday, Billy received a British Invasion-inspired guitar with a Union Jack on its front from Jody and started teaching himself to play. By 16, he had bought his first real guitar, a 1968 Gibson Les Paul Black Beauty.
