ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Let’s let Billy’s fans do the talking;

Billy’s classic yet timeless songs are a reflection of a man who has fully lived, loved and lost. It isn’t hard to hear the sincerity in his voice.
- Dale Murray, Producer/Songwriter

“Lonely” is a song worthy of the Wilburys.  Great to hear his stuff coming through the speaker!
- Al Tuck, Singer/Songwriter

We have Billy Donnelly to thank for songs with genuine feel and thought like “Thank You” and “In Love”.  While we’re at it, let’s thank Dale Murray for his masterful solos that permeate this album and mirror Billy's sentiments.  This album is pure and simple inspiration.  THANK YOU Billy!
- Christina Martin, Singer/Songwriter

I love Billy’s voice.  It’s real.  He knows what he’s singing about.
- Daniel Matto, Singer/Songwriter

It's as if Patsy Cline and The Beach Boys got together for a campfire.  Most magical campfire ever.
- Kendra Fulford, Coffee Girl Extraordinaire

“Over The Plain” conveys the comforting feeling of hope triumphing over sadness, but in a gentle way.  Such a perfect execution.  "Lonely" bewitched me.  The lyrics and music are downright enchanting!
- Fina Moir, Lady of Taste

"You" could be a lost George Harrison song.  There are some nice Beatlesque arrangements here.  Great sound - very satisfying.  It's always good to hear a record where the influences are many and varied without being obtrusive. Well played, sir.
- Dave Cullen, Man of Words

“The Room” brought a tear to my eyes.
- George Bauer, Man of Tears

Billy is a real one-off in today’s world; his song writing is a throwback to another era, when songs were all about structure and melody, and I swear he knows more guitar chords than Joni Mitchell.
- Dave Careless, Man of Silliness

The Story of The Billy Project;

When Christina Martin & Dale Murray first heard Billy’s music, Christina said "These songs are amazing, Billy!  We're gonna do an album.  Your album.  We're gonna call it The Billy Project.  Let's put a goat on the cover".  And so they did.  Billy’s smart and thoughtful songs are the perfect match for Dale’s masterful solos and production.  Billy’s work has been compared favourably to Nick Lowe, The Beach Boys, Tom Petty, George Harrison and Harry Nilsson.  He’s the first 'outside' artist to be signed to Martin’s Come Undone Records Label. 
So what's a Billy Project?  To find the answer, we must first ask "Who is Billy?"  He writes songs and sings them, that's who.  He used to keep his songs in a wooden box under his bed and he always told his friends that when he thought he had enough good ones, he’d put out a record.  He must have written enough, because here it is. He may be an old goat, but he’s nobody’s fool. Sometimes winsome, sometimes blue, his jangle-pop busts out on songs like "Lonely" and "Thank You". Billy tells us he has a lot of fans, one blowing in every window.
