Billy Simon is the most unique and diverse artist to emerge from Music City in decades. His unsurpassed talent in writing and delivering his own material as well as his skillful interpretation of classic standards defines the artist who is Billy Simon.
Billy grew up in Cleveland, Oklahoma thirty miles outside of Tulsa. He performed music at an early age singing in a church quartet. This experience gave him the desire to develop his musical skills. So with the gift of an upright piano, which belonged to his grandmother, he began to teach himself how to play and write songs. After graduating high school, Billy decided it was time to move to Nashville to pursue his true love, music. He quickly signed his first song-writing deal with publishing giant Sony/Tree Music. During his time there, he had over forty songs recorded in the Christian and country market. Near the end of his publishing deal with Sony/Tree, Billy joined the group 4 Runner, touring with Tim McGraw, Blackhawk and Kenny Rogers. In 2002, along with friends and co-writers Mark Hemby and Jimmy Lee Sloas, they formed the band Chester Whyte, which was signed to MCA Records.
Billy has recently signed with Music Mill Entertainment and just completed his first solo CD project. Check out “Billy Simon” to see why his mix of talent and influence delivers the quality and magic of what today’s music should be.
