GOING FOR ADDS 5/9
Dear Musical Tastemaker:
Enclosed is “Driver” the debut single from Billy Raffoul, seeking airplay now. Impact date is May 8th.
Billy’s father is a professional touring musician. He got his first guitar at age 10 and was playing clubs in his mid teens. Soon after, he was getting paid doing backing vocal work in Canada (he hails from Windsor, Ontario) and the Detroit area. At one of these Detroit sessions, the engineer asked him to play a couple of his original songs. The video of these songs was sent to Ken Levitan (Kings of Leon, Patty Griffin, John Hiatt, Emmy Lou Harris, Lyle Lovett, Jonny Lang & more) who signed Billy the next day.
His recent SXSW performance at Willie Nelson’s Arlyn Studios was very well received by the Triple A and Alternative programmers in attendance (live snippet enclosed).
