Who are these people?
Billingsley is a Rock and Roll power trio from Asheville, North Carolina. The band is made up of brothers Wilson, Grant, and Bennett and features elements of Funk, R&B, Jazz, and Rock. The band's music emphasizes a fundamental balance between catchy hooks, seamless vocal harmonies, and seasoned musicianship…….
When three brothers come together to form a rock trio, magical things can happen. Babies stop crying, dogs stop barking, and even the AC unit quits making that weird sound; all stopping to enjoy the sound of basses being slapped, guitars being shredded, and drums being...seduced? Billingsley originally hails from Hendersonville, NC where we grew up learning to play music from our dad Nathan. For several years as kids, we played in churches and coffee shops all over western NC, learning about what it takes to make a live performance work. By 2016, we decided to “make this band thing official,” and in the Fall of 2017 we released our debut album, “Beginner’s Luck.”
Our signature sound has been likened to what it would sound like if you took the music of The Eagles, Coldplay, Sublime, and Foo Fighters and threw them all in a blender at full-blast. There’s a lot of broken machinery, some screaming, and a little blood.
