Billy Kay's Profile

Billy Kay is an American Country Songwriter and Musician. The most downloaded in Las Vegas | #1 in S Carolina | Now taking Nashville by Storm.

Billy Kay is a homeless Veteran, currently living in a shelter in Clifton, TN. He travels America writing, recording and performing on his now-famous "Abject Poverty Tour".

He donates a share of all royalties and merchandise sales to various charities. He gets to work with top-tier musicians who often donate their skills to the cause - or work for the price of a cheeseburger! For example, his breakout hit "Ready... Set... Gone!"... 100% of the proceeds go to The Shade Tree (a battered women's shelter) for posterity.

Billy also organized 2011's "Country for a Cause" CD, which featured some of the most talented - and award winning - indie musicians on the indie country music scene.

Billy started playing the accordion at age 5. Knowing it would be impossible to "pick up women" with an accordion, he convinced his mom to let him switch to guitar at 7. And his guitar has been his constant companion for 4 decades.

He went public with his songs three years ago, and he's since been played all over the world. He was the most downloaded person in Las Vegas. People make videos of themselves dancing to his songs from Asia to Denmark!

Billy writes from the heart. "I write what I see" says Billy. "I lack the ability to make stuff up. So if I see hurt or joy in someone, I extrapolate how they got to that point."

His latest release, "When You Hold Me Tight", was recorded in Las Vegas, Chicago, and Florida. "All my favorite performers" play on it" states Billy. It was a labor of love - and a blast to record!

As long as people keep listening, I'll keep writing. And I get to tell people about those less fortunate then themselves in the process. Of all the directions my life could have taken, I consider myself blessed to be where I am.

All My Best,
Billy Kay

I thought “Payola” Radio was Outlawed back in the 50′s!

Posted on October 15, 2012 at 7:12am 2 Comments

We released a new single last week, and were immediately bombarded with emails telling us to submit our “great song” to various Internet radio stations. Apparently, there are over 100,000 Internet radio stations dying to play our song.

The catch? They all CHARGE to listen to the song, with no guarantee of making the radio’s rotation. Anywhere from $5 to $49 to submit a song that may never be played on the air.

My math says that would cost a songwriter between a…

I recently posted a link on The NashvilleUniverse about a podcast I was asked to do about The Art of Networking. I hope some of you had a chance to listen because it's the most important part of your business!

What we do here when we talk to each other and support each other IS actually Networking. Taking it a step further is when you actually meet someone you've been networking with online.

Something happened last week that drives home the importance of Networking - and I… Continue

Monetizing Your Band Website: Online Custom T-shirts

Online Custom T-shirts

One of the perks of our industry is "swag" - the free stuff companies give you in hopes you'll use or help promote them, or have your picture taken with a product (called product placement).

We recently made a cross country trip and everything except my carry-on suitcase, was branded swag used in photo ops. Hec! Even the laptop I'm writing this post with was a freebie.

I was recently hired as a consultant to teach bands how…
