Billy Lawler - Press Kit

General Information

Contact: Katie Kerins (manager) - or (978) 866-4412

Genre: Soulful pop / singer-songwriter


In a culture that has historically worn a reputation that de-emphasizes emotion in men, L.A.-based singer-songwriter Billy Lawler is creating original, heartfelt music that coincides with a new perspective on vulnerability. Billy’s upcoming releases, “Sorry” and “Steep,” explore the challenges encountered during the process of learning how to love, from owning up to the ending of a former relationship to getting back up and standing tall again after a loss.

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)
