Bill Rootes


Born: 1991


Bill Rootes is an Auckland based composer and songwriter, originally from London UK, who was initially known for his work in local progressive rock outfit Blackleaf Gardens as composer/guitar player and more recently known for his extensive solo artist work.

His music has been described as a constantly shifting experience and mashup of musical genres and styles including art rock, contemporary classical, blues, reggae, funk and jazz, just to name a few, and he continues to push the limits of music experimentation just to find out what he can achieve next purely in the name of artistic curiosity.

Rootes has completed his composition studies towards his music degree and is hoping to continue his honors in 2022 as well as recording music for multiple new projects including a 3rd solo record and an EP with his new collaborative project 'Kiwi Chameleon'.
