Busselton raised Fremantle alternative singer/songwriter & poet Billie Reid has a pedigree that is pure mongrel. Up there with the Go Betweens, The Triffids, the Buzzcocks and the Flamin’ Groovies … with Elvis Costello sneer. Drawing from religious themes, science, eco politics etc, the polemics are wide. Alt rock, sub-alt rock with an Americana feel. Punk ethos with a side serve of Parisian swing and some Alan Ginsberg beat poetry. ‘Ticket Out Of Dizneyland’ transgresses many musical genres. No bloated self indulgence, no posturing and preening … it’s all here in Billie’s music.
This website is dedicated to the poetry and music of Billie Reid. It’s a super clear snapshot that captures an artist right on top of his game and features performances from artists Wayne Halifax and Fremantle chanteuse Lily.
