Hi Billy, I've followed you on social media for a couple of years. I've loved your arrangements of some of the classics. Wish my guitar playing was as good. Best of luck.

Fiona Shearne 8th August 2019

Totally stoked that you've got this opportunity. We saw you at your East Croydon gig supporting Opal Ocean and were blown away by your talent. Loved your covers and originals equally. You have a bright, bright future and we are so happy to be able to help that happen by adding to the fund. We will most definitely try and get to any more gigs you do. Such a fabulous set. Fiona & Martin Shearne

Billy, I've been amazed at your musical journey thus far. It is truely astonishing & inspiring. I've supported you from the start, and will continue to do so. It is great to be on this journey with you, to have chatted with you at gigs and to really get to know the guy behind the guitar. I wish you every success. P.s liking the sound of a dedicated 'Queen' covers album!
