Billy Strings is the groan-worthy moniker of William Apostol, who’s one of the fastest-rising stars of — what else? — virtuosic bluegrass. But the 26-year-old Michigan native brings the breakneck speed and technical obsessiveness of metal to the guitar and other stringed instruments, and a rock-star swagger to his performances. Raised on a mix of guitar music from Doc Watson, Bill Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and everyone in between, Strings is as comfortable channeling old-school murder ballads as he is writing about his psychedelic experiences (“Spinning”). With last year’s release of his official solo debut, Turmoil and Tinfoil, Strings both won over and pissed off fans of traditional bluegrass, and it sounds like he’s got a lot of troublemaking ahead of him.
