About Billy

 
 

Billy White, Jr. is a Texas born and based musician, producer and recording artist.


Growing up listening to his father’s modest collection of country albums he took in all the classics from Hank Williams and Jim Reeves to Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins and Merle Haggard. Around Junior High he discovered Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, The Allman Brothers and all the other greats from the 70’s.


Wood-shedding for hours on end in his room he tried to master all the nuances and phrasings of the players and singers he respected and admired. Going on to study music at North Texas in Denton he played guitar and sang full time while working with various bands, doing recording sessions and solo shows in a wide range of styles all the while refining his craft.


After taking time off to raise a family, Billy started playing music again in 1999 and built up his home studio to the point where he could record seriously in it. He produced three albums for other people before releasing his first in 2010. Titled “Just Another Guitar Player From Texas” the record contained twelve original songs and two covers that ranged from rock to R&B to country to blues and acoustic ballads reflecting the wide range of writing and performing that Billy has covered. Upon hearing that record Vintage Guitar Magazine described Billy as "scary good" and "one of the best guitar players you've never heard".


His second album, “Just Another Sad Ol’ Song” was released in 2012 and takes a turn down a winding country road. Loaded with steel, fiddles, mandolin and plenty of twang it features nine original songs and one classic cover. It has been garnering good reviews in Europe as well as Vintage Guitar again calling this one "spectacular"!
