“Billy Lockett is one of the hottest tips for stardom in 2014” – Sunday Mail

Billy Lockett is fast establishing himself as one of music’s best-kept secrets. A singer-songwriter of prodigious talent hailing from Northampton, his brand new single ‘Old Man’ is released in September, ahead of his third headline tour of the UK, and demonstrates why Radio 1 have been such keen supporters to date.

‘Old Man’ is a yearning, heartfelt number inspired by Billy’s father, a massive influence on the young singer who sadly passed away this year. Billy was raised solely by his father from the age of eight, a colourful character who was a bohemian artist exposing Billy to incredible experiences. ‘Old Man’ serves as a poignant reminiscence of the man who formed Billy into the artist he is today.

Displaying real meaning and depth, Billy’s songwriting sees him convey his stories with a sincere, soulful voice, paralleled with his remarkable skill on both guitar and piano. These attributes have gained him a substantial, loyal fan base and airplay from the likes of Fearne Cotton, Greg James, Dev, Scott Mills, Huw Stephens and Gemma Cairney at Radio 1 who have championed his previous releases, play listing singles ‘Balance’ and ‘Pathways’.

The talented multi-instrumentalist’s release is produced by Andy Green (Keane, Paolo Nutini and The Feeling) and set to create serious excitement throughout his rapidly expanding fanbase and the wider music industry.

Since hitting the road as a travelling troubadour playing support slots wherever he could, Billy has now completed two sold-out UK headline tours, ramming venues such as The Borderline in London. On top of that he has found himself as support for artists such as KT Tunstall, Nina Nesbitt and Lana Del Rey. Most recently Billy was asked to join Birdy as main support on her UK and European tour – all of which has grown Billy’s fan base considerably.

A string of festival appearances at T in the Park, Isle Of Wight, The Great Escape, Splendour and Redfest have given Billy the chance to extend his enchanting live performance to a wider audience. They also saw him make the transition from solo artist to full band, unveiling new members and further expanding his already acclaimed live performance.
