Debut Album Penelope - out NOW

Billy released his debut album Penelope on the 26 January 2024, so far raising over £4,500 for World Child Cancer. 

In memory of his mother Penny, who died of cancer in August 2023, all proceeds of the album are going to World Child Cancer, a charity helping children in developing countries to beat cancer.

‘Penelope’ features Billy’s new chamber jazz group, Grande Família, both as a 12-piece ensemble and in smaller combinations, interspersed with intimate solo guitar vignettes.

The album launch gig was at Pizza Express Jazz Club Soho on 13th May 2024, selling out over two months in advance.

"All proceeds go to World Child Cancer, which is an excellent reason for purchase, but the music is reward enough"
