ABOUT

Hello everyone, I'm Billy. I'm looking for a group of dedicated/experienced musicians and vocalist to start an acoustic/folk/indie band, in the Miami area.

My primary instrument is the guitar, but also play banjo and bass as well. I'm fluent in music theory, as well as the recording arts. I've been in a few bands in my late teens and early twenty's, and have perform countless shows in my hometown, in Virginia.

I graduated Full Sail University in 2015, at the top of my class, and received my B.S. in Recording Arts. Thanks to the decision of all my fellow class mates, I was also the recipient of the Advanced Achievement Award and Course Director's Award.

Currently, I'm a recording engineer/assistant engineer at Criteria Recording Studios (The Hit Factory), in North Miami, working with most of the top A-list artists in the world.

I'm excited to finally be stable enough with my career and personal life, to work on my own projects and would like for this band to be my first objective. Please let me know if your interested, I'm excited to hearing back from you.

P.S.: I'm looking for people with dedication, experience, a good work ethic, and the confidence to perform (energy is important).
