Billy loves to entertain using whatever medium he has at his disposal. He's been performing on various stages since he was in the 5th grade. The past decade has been spent standing behind a microphone, strumming a guitar. That has been his main focus and pursued passion since he first played music in front of an audience. It thrilled him, uplifted him and taught him that he's capable of creating something from nothing and inspiring listeners. The world gives him enough content to fill countless books, and so he does. Billy has spent several years on the National Circuit touring with bands such as Plain White Ts, Parachute, K.T. Tunstall and various others. "Touring is not for everyone; it takes more than most people realize and on those long hauls through the night, the empty road has a knack for putting things into perspective." Perspective is something that Billy is able to connect to on an intimate level. This enables him to keep his songs relatable and relevant. Two very powerful attributes to achieving success in the music industry.
"The things that inspire me are the things that inspire everyone; I just chose to write about them. Inspiration can come from anywhere at any time. I try to acknowledge it when it arrives. A great inspiration to me is watching close friends and colleagues succeed in the pursuit of their passion. Seeing friends on the cover of magazines, in newspaper articles, featured on websites and standing on stages they've worked so hard to get to is a great inspiration and motivational factor for me. It's proof that if I work hard, I can and will achieve any goal I set for myself."
My favorite thing about RAW is the simple fact that they are connected to the artists and the art; and their main focus is on the people and not the industry. They bring together all types of expression and allow people to immerse themselves in a world seen through the artist's eyes. That's not something you find every day, and I am proud to be a part of it.
"Throughout the day I constantly think about how fortunate I am to have so many amazing people in my life. Those are the little things that make my world go round. I work diligently to keep those people as close as possible. Without them, my world would find itself in a cold, slow spin."
