His album “American Ride”, won the Independent Music Awards’ Best Rock Album of the Year, and appeared on over one hundred year-end Top Ten lists for 2013. Bono called it, “One of the great guides to unraveling the mystery that is the troubled beauty of America.” His album of piano based songs, “If I Was a River” (2014), was released to universal critical acclaim.
“One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past thirty years,” said The New Yorker. No Depression raved “Willie Nile’s artistic renaissance continues unabated.”
