Press Quotes

"All props to James Brown, but Bill Kurzenberger may be the hardest working living man in show business.  The Columbus keyboardist/guitarist/singer/songwriter plays with five bands, records with a couple others and maintains a burgeoning solo career.  No cape, no entourage, but Kurzenberger will work you into a cold sweat nonetheless."

Brian Baker, CityBeat Magazine, Cincinnati, Ohio (September 2008)
MidPoint Music Festival Showcase

"Bill Kurzenberger is an incredibly talented artist... a stalwart and a fixture on the Columbus music scene, in particular in the jam-band sect.  He's done so, so much for that area of music in Columbus and beyond."

Myke Rock, M-Agency International, Columbus, Ohio (Sept. 2006)
Myke Rock Radio

"If I wanted to spend a happy hour somewhere, imbibing cocktails and talking about my shrinking financials, ol’ Bill could supply the sounds and Jerry Garcia tie anytime.

This is a compliment." 

John Petric, The Other Paper, Columbus, Ohio (December 2010)
Major Minor - Albums You May Have Missed

"Bill can play any keyboard, any style."

"Bill Kurzenberger's keyboard solo in (Can't Stop) Thee Hands of Tyme is brilliant, if I say so myself!"

Tim Gassen, Purple Cactus Media Productions, Tucson, Arizona (2008, 2014)

"One of Ohio's hottest singer songwriters... the more I listen to (Bill's) stuff, the more I like it."

Ramblin' Rob, Greatest Story Ever Told Radio Show, WAIF 88.3FM, Cincinnati, Ohio (April 2014)


"Bill Kurzenberger hails from Columbus Ohio, and is one of Ohio's hottest singer/songwriters in the Midwest! This new project features nine songs all written & composed by Bill. Bill reached out to some of the musicians (fourteen in all) that he has or is currently performing with. RESONATE takes you on a musical journey that features all the sides of this talented musician/singer/songwriter. I am a huge fan of Dr. John & Bruce Hornsby and Bill fills that soulful sound as he casts his spell that leaves you wanting more!

RESONATE is a well produced CD and with the layering of great musicianship that you can tell comes loyal support of members of the Bug Hounds, KrisB's Midnight Railroad (two of the bands that Bill currently performs in), Ian Carroll, Travis Gates, Scott Maruskin, Lou Schocken and Eric Ransom, all friends of this talented performer. They set the stage to let Bill shine with his soulful keys and vocals."

John Moyer, "Uncle John's Radar", Fourth Coast Entertainment Magazine, Canton, New York (June 2015)

"Bill Kurzenberger was next on deck and as a one-man-band filled the whole venue with his bluesy soul-rock and expressed himself by romancing the keys on his keyboard. His clearly seasoned musical talent paired with his amazing vocals created a new sultry vibe to the event, one that did not go unnoticed. Bill Kurzenberger has been nominated as Best Singer/Songwriter for the 2012 Columbus Music Awards."

Nikki Hunter, Columbus Music Awards LLC, Columbus, Ohio (Nov. 2011)

Millennium Music Conference, Day Two Recap 2/18/2012

"A regular attendee of Millennium over the past few years, Columbus, Ohio-based keyboardist and singer Bill Kurzenberger dazzled with his bright melodies and ivory work."

Backyard Beats - Millennium Music Conference, Day Two

Millennium Music Conference, Day Two 2/20/2010

"Like the first day of Millennium Music Conference business sessions, this one also featured a schedule of panels and seminars, and more acoustic entertainment on the Pennsylvania Musician-sponsored acoustic stage.

Some 28 different performers and bands graced the acoustic stage throughout the day. Among the most impressive performances were those by... Columbus, Ohio-based singer/pianist Bill Kurzenberger.

The daytime portion of the Millennium Music Conference concluded with this year’s edition of what has become the conference’s most popular panel, the Smash Or Trash panel. Throughout the weekend, musicians were invited to submit their recordings to a drop box. Then, during the Smash Or Trash panel, a panel of music industry representatives would play some of the submitted recordings and offer their thoughts and critiques of the music; disclosing whether the song had the potential to be a hit, or if it was trash and/or needed major reworking... There were several big "winners," songs that passed the panel with flying colors and were deemed potential hits; those songs were submitted by Shaun Ruyman, The Chuck Schaeffer Picture Show, Bill Kurzenberger, The Trapps, and Shayna Zaid."
