Following a huge 2017 and newly signed to East West Records, Billy Lockett releases his brilliant new single ‘Empty House’ today! Last week saw Billy return to London for a very special sold out show at the Union Chapel complete with string quartet, and support from fellow breakout artist Áine Cahill.
Produced by MyRiot (London Grammar, Birdy), this beautiful piano driven track showcases Billy’s emotive vocals and infectious melodies. The track follows his ‘Burn It Down’ EP which reached Number 1 on the singer songwriter chart and received over 6 million streams.
With champions from BBC Radio 1, 6Music, The Telegraph, The Independent, Metro, Evening Standard and The Times, support slots with Lana Del Ray and Birdy under his belt, as well as multiple sold-out London shows, 2018 looks set to be quite a year for Billy Lockett.
