Billy was introduced to playing drums early on in life… growing up in Carolina Beach, N.C. He would walk along the boardwalk, stopping & peering in the local clubs, hoping to get a glimpse of the band and particularly the drummer. His next door neighbor “Buddy “ a drummer & friend of the family, would often have parties where live music was played & that’s when he knew that playing drums was what he wanted to do!
The first time he actually got the chance to play drums with a live band was in a church in Winston Salem, N.C. From then on, he knew he was destined to be a drummer!
Billy has played different styles of music, ranging from classic Rock to harder Rock, Blues & R&B to Country. He has also played drums in a Theatre setting, working for the Spencer Theatre Company, in Spencer Mass.
Billy has recorded with Country Artist “Nathan Dean & NQH” on his 2008 debut “Addicted to a Good Time”; you can hear samples at www.nathandean.net .
