Billy Davis is a musical juggernaut which features up to 11 members when playing live, pieced together by the multi-talented band leader and chief-songwriter William Rimington. Their style mirrors luminaries like Kaytranada, Anderson Paak and the Internet, with their upbeat jams appearing as a breath of fresh air on the Australian music scene.
A sought-after session musician in his own right, Rimington has spent the last couple of years immersing himself into the fruitful local neo-soul & hip-hop scene, before joining forces with influential collective The Operatives. Quickly assembling the Billy Davis project, the group's first album Bad Ending was released independently earlier this year to a burst of fanfare. Now, the band are readying themselves to step into the spotlight with exciting new material quickly appearing on the horizon.
Billy Davis' 'No Longer Lovers' is now out on all platforms through Good Manners Records.
