Biography

Donning his trademark leather jacket and set to transform the music of the stereotypical indie wild child, a youthful, self-taught, ambitious Billy Lockett bursts into 2011 with an armoury of tracks ranging from flawless piano playing to catchy, punchy feel good tunes ; all aided by a uniquely soulful voice that leaves crowds muttering choruses into the night… and you thought Northampton only produced good shoes.

Hidden away in a quaint, terraced house, beneath years of prestigious artwork and creative awe, in a basement full to the brim of old slot machines, canvases, board games and band equipment, lurks the infectious sound of Billy Lockett; the towns best kept, home grown, musical prodigy in the making. Call it “acoustic-pop with a hint of indie”, call it “indie-piano with a tint of pop”; all we know is there’s some serious method in the music he’s making.

Billy’s lived in Northampton his whole life, yet it only clicked that he wanted to make something of himself when he turned 16. “You can’t win if you don’t play” is a quote that sticks out for him as he reminisces about the days he used to 7-ball all the drunks at the local pub. Although blessed with musical talent, Billy never realised he could truly make something of himself until he actually played the cards he’d been dealt and took his music out of his bedroom. “One day I thought to myself, get out of your room and work on your music… Show people why you’re doing it and what you’re capable of…”
