Billy D’s life experience has given him the strength to write the Blues with a passion that only comes from living it. In the mid ’90s Billy moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico and began playing his original songs at local clubs and concerts. Within the year, Billy D and the Hoodoos were formed.
For fans of Rock of Ages, “Somethin’s Wrong” is very reminiscent of Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar on Me.” “She’s The One,” “Why Ya Do It,” and “50” have a true southern feel similar to Jace Everett’s “Bad Things” which can be heard as the theme for HBO’s original series True Blood. Speaking about TV, in October 2011, one of Billy’s tunes, “Bye Now,” from his acoustic CD was licensed by the CW for use in the series Hart of Dixie. “Crazy Little Dancin’ Queen” and “Miss The Love” are a bit more faster to move around to.
Somethin’s Wrong has taken off with its 12 videos from the DVD combining for over 2,000 views per day on YouTube and online sales. The album is available for download on iTunes and Amazon.
