Biography

Coventry, United Kingdom (1997 – present)

Billie Myers (born 14 June 1971, Coventry, UK) is an English rock singer-songwriter. She is known principally for her 1998 transatlantic hit, “Kiss The Rain” (co-written with Eric Bazilian and Desmond Child).

Possessing both the introspective nature of Tracy Chapman and the unbridled spunk of Chrissie Hynde, Myers excels at weaving poetic narratives around starkly honest portraits of her life experiences “reassuringly long on singer-songwriting talent” (The London times).

The story of Myers’ discovery by record producer Peter Q. Harris (Will Smith) has become one of legend in the music industry. “I was dancing around being goofy, and Pete came up and said, “If you sing as good as you dance, we should work on some songs together.” Myers’ giggles, “It’s kind of an embarrassing story. Everybody thinks it happened at a strip joint or something, which of course it didn’t!”. Soon after, Myers entered the studio with world-famed record producer Desmond Child (Ricky Martin, Cher, Robbie Williams). While working on some tracks in 1997, Doug Morris, president of Universal Music, dropped by to visit his pal Child. After hearing Myers, he quickly offered the flabbergasted singer a recording deal. “I was simply lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time” says Myers.

Her debut album “Growing, pains” spawned the infectious, hit single, “Kiss The Rain.” Carving out a spectacular niche on airwaves around the globe, “Kiss The Rain” stayed on Billboard’s Top 100 for over six months, reached the top ten internationally and the dance remix became a club-land classic.

    It took me awhile, but I finally tracked down the music for the ADM commercial from a few years ago. What a treat!
