Billy Liar grew up in the underground punk rock scene, finding his feet and forging his sound through a self-imposed relentless touring schedule, a love of playing live and an understanding that good things do not come to those who wait. Great things come to those who get out on the road and make a hell of a lot of their own mistakes.
Billy has been touring the UK, mainland Europe and America extensively for over ten years, released 7 EPs on independent record labels, had songs played on BBC Radio 1 and XFM and toured Australia and New Zealand. He has toured the East Coast of America extensively four times including performing at the Fest in Gainesville, Florida four times, solo and with a band, played CMJ in New York City, visited Woodford Folk Festival in Australia for a week of performances, played Rebellion Punk Festival in England eight years in a row and even co-wrote, co-directed and starred in a play at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland for a month of shows.
In 2019, Billy will release his long-awaited full-band, full-length record, produced by Joe McMahon (Smoke Or Fire) and featuring Robin Guy (Sham 69/Lars Frederiksen) and Stina Tweeddale (Honeyblood).
