As a regularly scheduled blues act playing throughout the United States and Europe, his CD, Mr. Politician, earned Grammy nominations for Best Contemporary Blues Album and Wills himself for the category of Best New Blues Artist by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, Inc. Everyone associated with the Texas music scene knows Bert Wills as truly a Texas Blues-Rock legend. Known for his wide variety of music styles, Bert is an all 'round' musician, writing and singing great blues as you will find on his first two recordings Mr. Politician and Special Session and once again on his fourth release Tell Me Why. His third release Pavones Sunset steps away from traditional blues and enters the surf music genre. This CD release is licensed to legendary surfer/filmmaker, Herbie Fletcher for use in Fletcher's surfing film, Stylemasters. Bert's music earned Grammy nominations in 1995 and 1996.
