Over his short career, Billy Davis has introduced himself to new fans with his exciting blend of hip-hop/RnB and gained support from around the world. Billy Davis and his band the Good Lords featuring up to 11 members is a “hidden gem, the kind of funk, jazz, electronic and hip-hop is really unlike any combination of genres we’ve heard” (Hilly Dilly). They’ve shared the stage with Anderson Paak, NoName and Blackalicious and appeared at Australia’s most prominent festivals. A sought-after session musician in his own right (Lending to Goldlink’s live version), Billy Davis has spent the last couple of years immersing himself into the fruitful local neo-soul & hip-hop scene. His first release, the Bad Ending Mixtape, was released last year to a burst of local fanfare. His Debut album A Family Portrait is ‘a funkadelic hybrid of soul and hip-hop that is of the here and now’ (High Snobiety) and has been a breath of fresh air on the Australian music scene.
