Billy “T” Wilde

Currently hailing from our Nation’s Capital, Billy “T” Wilde is an American live performing, singer / songwriter.
With just his guitar and thundering voice, Billy performs both a stripped down yet high energy one-man-band act, as well as a duo, Blues, Pop / Rock group along with his percussionist.  He is part of a growing trend of looping artist’s that are able to use a looping pedal to layer musical harmonies to reproduce the sound, feel and energy of a full band.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Washington DC, Billy began playing piano at age 5 and soon added guitar to his musical repitoire ultimately becoming his main instrument of choice. “My family were really supportive of my love of music from very early on and took me to see live shows which influenced my love and desire to be a musician.” His early influences range from the Classic Rock icons like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Led Zeppelin to solo artists like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Sting and Prince. He first started playing and fronting his own rock bands as a teenager and continued on singing and playing guitar in multiple regional mid Atlantic groups before branching out on his own.

Heavily influenced by American blues, soul and funk by the likes of The Isley Brothers, Stevie Wonder and Lenny Kravitz, Billy began to re-tool his sound, finally embarking on his solo career in 2009. 
He quickly made a name for himself in and around the Nation’s Capital for his live shows, moving audiences with his passionate and high energy performances becoming one of the Washington area’s most popular live acts.
