Hey Guys !

 It's been a great time in France, but after one year of experiences, I am moving back to London early September !

I am scared and excited at the same time, but I believe I have to do it, because my biggest fear is to regret later on things I didn't do when I was "Young", and I need to give music one big shot.

I am clearly nobody to you, but I encourage you to live your passion and to give it all you got, and If it doesn't work out, it's ok, unfortunately in life sometimes even when we give the best of ourselves, we don't succeed.

But it's all happening for a reason, I believe :)

Anyway I didn't plan on expressing my feelings on all that, but here we are !!


So the plan is to perform, record and share as much music as I possibly can during my time in LND town !

Can't wait to show you what I've been up too, keep it real Folks <3

Your Billy

Bio

Billy is a Folk singer-songwriter, who writes, plays and sings from the heart adding to it a blend of imagination and psyche that culminate to betray his own feelings to find the simple truth of storytelling.
His enchanting sound is inspired by artists such as Neil Young, Bon Iver and Damien Rice.

Billy first picked up a guitar at the age of fifteen, and was singing even before that. He discovered his first urge to write songs (not coincidentally) when he met, and needed to impress his first girlfriend.
From there, his creativity gathered momentum finding its place in heavy metal (for four years) and pop-punk (for two). Both of which were infiltrated by a growing interest in bands like Pink Floyd and Radiohead.

The metal band reached its natural end in 2013 which became the catalyst for Billy’s solo ambition, taking him to London to pursue his dream of becoming a working musician. Where artists: Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Nick Drake well and truly opened his eyes to the beguiling fables of Folk music.
Inspiring him to hit the open mic circuit solo, armed with a harmonica and guitar. Leading to more and more booked gigs and, in 2014, the recording of his first EP ‘Tallulah’ produced by Nacho Silvestre.

At one such gig, in late 2015, Billy had a chance meeting with producer and sound engineer Ed Hartwell (Ed Sheeran, The Prodigy), and together they began work on his second EP. One year of hard graft and a successful kickstarter campaign later, ‘Across the Narrow Sea’ was released in March 2017, launching on the 3rd March at The Slaughtered Lamb.
In 2018, he participated at TV show "The Voice" and supported French musicians such as Amir and Vianney.
His 3rd EP named "Gossip", entirely produced by Billy, is set to be released in 2019.
