Band leader, multi-instrumentalist and pianist for Mike Westbrook's Big Band, Billy blends a hint of Canterbury-scene with jazz and folk, bringing forth his new offering, Unrecorded Beam.
This mini-epic concept album, set to the poetry of American Transcendentalist, Henry David Thoreau, connotes nostalgia and whimsy, whilst pushing the experimental/free-improvisational boundaries; warranting its release with the longstanding avant-garde label, Leo Records. Produced by Lee Fletcher of Unsung Productions, Unrecorded Beam has been adorned with Fletcher's distinctive approach, creating an enchanting and ethereal soundscape - suitably complimenting Thoreau's evocative landscape.
