Billy Davis and The Good Lords

Australia

BILLY DAVIS AND THE GOOD LORDS are a musical juggernaut in the making. Headed by band leader and chief-songwriter William Rimington, they debuted in 2016 with ‘No Longer Lovers’, a neo-soul jam that made it clear that these guys are poised for the big leagues. The track was picked up by BBC Radio, KCRW, and skyrocketed them to the upper echelons of the Spotify Viral Charts (#3 in Australia, #4 in the US and #7 globally). Their 2017 album A Family Portrait is a 14-track collection of smooth, feel-good hip-hop, marking Billy Davis a breath of fresh air in the Australian music scene. Some say he is the antipodean answer to Kaytranada, but with an 11-piece band in tow, we think he’s something else completely.
