I have no band. It's just me....For over 15 years I have been writing on my own and never really had anyone to play with. So I learned it on my own. I have infact "just recently" been blessed with my buddy Steve. He's been playing guitar for over 30 years. It has been nothing short of a miricle to have found him.
Why this name?
Hard to choose a last name. I don't like eithor, and I don't like being called Billie Jo. It's Billie Dawn.
Do you play live?
I do on occasion. Weddings " I wrote my own music for mine, only two funerals, my neice and my boyfriend who died back in 1996. Only orrigional music though. I also Djay and I do use alot of my material. We have alot of fun with it and It's fun to see and hear people imitate your music.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's awesome. I can come up with a new mix and send it over to anybody I want and less than 5 minutes they are listening to it. Pretty soon it won't matter where you live. You won't have to venture out to L.A just to get rejected bu some Yahoo who don't have the ear or the sense God gave a Goose.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes! Music is the weapon of the next generation. Face it these guns can get pretty heavy at times.
I wrote my first song when I was 12. It's called Jonny Come Home. It's about a soldier that went missing in action during the first gulf war. Since then I have written all types of songs about every type of situation.
My grandma was radio Disc Jockey, she has written since the beginning of time. I love all sorts of music. 80's rock, Pop, Country. What ever it may be. You can't stick me in a catagory. All of the above. What ever comes my way wheter it's pickin/screamin guitars to a chior of little kids. I can make into anything.
Montana. Going back home to Grandma's.
