Billy was born in the Mississippi Delta in 1955 and was exposed to a potpourri of different music. Growing up with Rock n Roll and surrounded by the Delta Blues helped forge a music base that started broad and is getting broader. He's been influenced by the Ozark and Rocky Mountain vibrant music community with a touch of Irish folk influence seeping in. It conforms perfectly to Bluegrass and folk music of today. You can see that in "Ozark Jane" and " Lonesome Road Blues". Both songs are a high energy reminder of fiddle tunes of days gone by.
The most important thing you will find is the unending fight to make the world we live in a better place for the next generation. Clean water, air and public access to America's national treasures are reflected in Rainy Day. It is a long-term fight where we will give no quarter. The strength of the characters written about on the debut album shows that storytelling will always be in the forefront.
Although late to songwriting, the cast of characters of the region have been a fertile ground for story telling. That talent has now been brought to a new singer songwriter.
