Genre: Soulful pop / singer-songwriter


Recognized for writing profound songs at the piano that combine a throwback soul vibe with crooning vocals, L.A.-based singer-songwriter Billy Lawler released his debut EP, Nostalgic, in 2016. His live, acoustic sets from esteemed stages including Hotel Café, The Viper Room, and NAMM, have drawn comparisons to acts such as Kevin Garrett, James Blake, and Sam Smith. With an appearance on Good Day Sacramento and a Hollywood Music in Media Award nomination under his belt, he is currently hard at work on his follow-up project, writing new music and sharing stages with other up-and-coming artists.

What Everyone else is saying

Lawler has strong musical characteristics that are reminiscent of Donny Hathaway, Ryan Tedder, John Legend and Sam Smith...He tastefully fuses R&B/soul with contemporary pop and a hint of indie alternative, a task so rarely achieved with ease.
— Heather Allen (Music Connection)
I really connect to Billy’s music. I feel his strength and sensitivity through his great voice, lyrics, and melodies.
— Lisa Loeb (GRAMMY nominated singer-songwriter)
If Sam Smith’s success is any indication, Lawler definitely has a shot—with his soulful croon and piano-pop ballads, Lawler would make any Smith fan swoon... R&B influence, sparse instrumentation, emotional falsetto and just plain prettiness.
— Janelle Bitker (Sacramento News & Review)
