1883 Magazine


We first met Northampton born singer / songwriter Billy Lockett when we shot him back in April to celebrate his first single of 2017, the ethereal ‘More’.

Fast forward to nearly the end of the year and it’s been a whirlwind for Billy, playing his third sold out London show at the beautiful Bush Hall and releasing two more singles in the shape of ‘Hands Tied’ and ‘Who I Am’, both tracks nodding towards his fragile yet acutely powerful and personal style of songwriting.

To wrap this year off in style the Northampton born artist has announced a special edition live EP ’Live at The Blind Club’ and an early 2018 regional tour, ahead of his eagerly anticipated debut album which will come next year. This special edition 3 track live EP will include a hand picked cover from Billy alongside a selection of some of his most exquisite tracks; ’Thinking Bout You’ (Frank Ocean cover), ’Hands Tied’ and ’Who I Am’ performed in a stripped back and intimate setting. 

The project is out now across all platforms and to celebrate Billy has given 1883 an exclusive live session of one of his most personal tracks ‘Who I Am’ as well as his thoughts on what has made his top tracks so far of 2017.

So sit back and watch this beautiful session from Billy here;

And read on to find out what has been on his speakers for 2017;


London Grammar - Non Believer 

One of my favourite acts.  Love how powerful the intro is on this track, starting with the beat and building throughout 


Lewis Capaldi - Fade

Love the rawness of his vocal especially on the chorus it’s incredible.


Adam French - Weightless

Been a fan of this guys music for a long time and have been eagerly waiting his new material - this did not disappoint and I especially love the falsetto.


Dan Owen - Hideaway 

After supporting him on a few UK dates this song really stuck out for me 


Strong Asian Mothers - Hard To Find

I saw this band recently without knowing anything about them and when they played this tune it went off! Haven’t stopped listening ever since, the production in particular is stand out.
