Billy Eli writes tight, lean songs played with an inviting groove His songs of love, longing, the road, and getting by are, in his words, sometimes happy, sometimes sad.

His first album, “Something’s Going On,” released in 1994, garnered strong reviews in the US and a cult following in Europe. He has since released four more albums and recently began embracing the single release format. However, he currently has a full, old fashioned style album recorded and in the can waiting for release on vinyl in the coming year.

In 2011 he released his fourth album and went back to touring full time. That album, “Hell Yeah!” spent 16 weeks on the Root-Rock chart, reaching as high as number 14, and was listed at #67 on the Top 100 Roots-Country albums of 2011.
