Busselton raised Fremantle alternative singer/songwriter and 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 the enigmatic Billie Reid and Fremantle Chanteuse Lily. It’s a super clear snapshot that captures these artists right on top of their game …. featuring performances from Perth crooner Wayne Halifax.
