WAM Nov 24-25 Liner Notes Billy Hickey

Billy Hickey has been involved in music since his teenage high school days when he played in bands with a bunch of his buddies. With the release of enough origional material to fill 3 CD’s, Billy and local rock band,”Timbre”, toured the country living the music dream as seen from the inside of a van.

Today Billy splits his time between a career in the fast moving communications world and shuttling his two children from ballet to music lessons and everything in between.

But Billy has still managed to steal away some time to put his musical thoughts on paper for a very special project…..a solo CD that takes him “From There to Here”.

WAM Nov 17-18 Liner Notes Great Big Sea

Time now for Liner Notes….

Twenty years ago they started out with a vision to build a career by playing the music of their ancestors for anyone who would listen.

Since then they have toured the world, collected wallfuls of gold and platinum records and rubbed shoulders with a who’s who on the international music scene.

Now with the release of their 20th anniversary box set,”XX” which has gone gold, Great Big Sea can safely say,”mission accomplished”.

But GBS are not ready to rest on their royalties just yet. Collectively they are booked on a cross country tour due to start in the new year while pursuing individual projects.

One could say that they were,” Born To Believe”.
