Billy Bibby, from Llandudno, Wales, is one of my favorite solo artists and has me intrigued for what is next to come in the future of his career. He was the former lead guitarist for one of my favorite bands, Catfish and the Bottlemen. Now, Bibby is off pursuing his solo career; and I’m loving it.
Billy has seven songs out on Souncloud, including two acoustic versions. One of my favorite songs has to be Hidaway. The guitar intro to the song reminds me a lot of the intro to Glass In the Park by Alex Turner and if you know me well, that is my favorite EP to listen to. The other tracks by Billy are Girl, Don’t Fall, Waitin’ For You, and Believe Me. The acoustic versions are of Waitin’ For You and Don’t Fall and I honestly love them all. The guitar in each song is breathtaking; Bibby is full of good thought and he definitely knows what sounds great.
I am hoping to see Billy in the US one day.. And I have a good feeling that it will happen very soon. He is doing a good amount of gigs right now in the UK, check out his Facebook to see show dates and more news. The link to his Souncloud is here.
