ABOUT BILLY KAY

Billy Kay is an American Country songwriter and performer. The most downloaded in Las Vegas | #1 in S Carolina | Now taking Nashville by Storm! Billy is a homeless Veteran, currently living in a shelter in Tennessee. He travels America writing, recording and performing on his now-famous "Abject Poverty Tour".

He donates a share of all royalties and merchandise sales to various charities. He gets to work with top-tier musicians who often donate their skills to the cause - or work for the price of a cheeseburger! For example, his breakout hit "Ready... Set... Gone!"... 100% of the proceeds go to The Shade Tree (a battered women's shelter) for posterity.

Billy also organized 2011's "Country for a Cause" CD, which featured some of the most talented - and award winning - indie musicians in the indie country music scene.

Billy started the accordion at age 5. Knowing it would be impossible to "pick up women" with an accordion, he convinced his mom to let him switch to guitar at 7. And his guitar has been his constant companion for 4 decades.

He went public with his songs 3 years ago, and he's been played all over the world. He was the most downloaded person in Las Vegas. People make videos of themselves dancing to his songs from Asia to Denmark!

Billy writes from the heart. "I write what I see" says Billy. "I lack the ability to make stuff up. So if I see hurt or joy in someone, I extrapolate how they got to that point."

His latest release, "When You Hold Me Tight", was recorded in Las Vegas, Chicago, and Florida. "All my favorite performers" play on it" states Billy. It was a labor of love - and a blast - to record!

Next up is "Southern Girl" being finished in Columbia.

As long as people keep listening, I'll keep writing. And I get to tell people about those less fortunate then themselves in the process. Of all the directions my life could have taken, I consider myself blessed.

Billy Kay grew up on Long Island, New York. He started with the accordion at age 5. He switched to guitar at age 7.

He studied music at Five Towns College and CW Post University. He plays guitar, piano, french horn, bass, harmonica, banjo, harmonica and drums.

He traveled to Los Angeles in the 70's to appear on The Gong Show and settled in the LA area. He won a talent competition in Sacramento and recorded his first original song "Memories of Debbie" in 1974.

He returned to New York, where he recorded with several famous musicians.

In 1999, he was heading back to LA and stopped in Vegas. A week's stay turned in to a summer stay, which turned into a year, which turned into permanent.

MY FAVORITE UNDISCOVERED ARTISTS

Kellie%20LynneQuantcast KELLIE LYNNE

Kellie has a big voice, big talent... and is country to the core! She has a lasting quality that will guarantee she'll be performing as long as Loretta, Reba and Dolly. While you can click the ReverbNation image and see her songs and videos, the one that did it for me is Kellie's Meet and Greet. Kellie's and the fans sincerity are a reminder of what Country music is all about. It's a Norman Rockwell painting... er video :)

Stacey%20ZegersQuantcast STACEY ZEGERS

Stacey is a one-of-a-kind talent. We all have facades. We have our professional facade, our family facade, etc. Stacey has just one: Music! She lives and breathes her music. And her enthusiasm is contagious. When you watch her play, you don't want her to stop. You can click the ReverbNation link to hear her, but the one that sets her apart is Sunflower. Watch it... and it's guaranteed you'll be won over!

Bobby%20Ray%20Bittle BOBBY RAY BITTLE

Bobby was born the son of a preacher man in Black Mountain, NC. He learned early on to appreciate music. It was a part of his recovery and total healing from Cancer at nine months old. Being raised up in gospel gave him roots, but sneaking to listen to country and rock helped round out his sound. Life became a succession of bad choices which led to drugs, alcohol and self-destructive behavior. Coming out on the other side wasn't easy. His vocals are amazing - and his songs are packed with emotion. i'm gonna. One listen and he'll move you!
