Billy G. Camp
Billy G. Camp grew up in South Carolina back when Gram Parsons was out in L.A. mixing Country music with Rock ní Roll. After getting hooked on Gramís sound in the mid-80ís, Billy picked up the bass guitar and dove head-first into the music. He played in several South Carolina-based rock bands including one that received regional attention in the early-90ís.
By the late 90's, Billy had become more interested in polishing up his songwriting skills. He bought a pawn-shop guitar and began searching for his wrong-eyed muse.
In 2004, Billy relocated to Boise, ID and soon began jamming with several musicians from the city's eclectic music scene. Upon finding the right group of players, he assembled the Billy G. Camp Band.
Featuring: Jason Greisa, a psychedelic-bluegrasser from the Detroit punk scene; Pat Reid, a formally trained drummer/percussionist from Humboldt County, CA; Drew Schneider, a southern rocker from South Florida; and Angie Stevens, a homegrown fiddler from Lewiston, ID; this band has proven to be a glorious experiment in diversity.
In the summer of 2005, Billy booked a series of sessions at the Audio Lab Recording Studio in Boise. The result was the debut CD entitled: "Don't Stop the Carnival".
"Don't Stop the Carnival" is as groovy and eclectic as the band itself; however, it is only a snapshot of where the band was. The Billy G. Camp Band has since grown and expanded its horizons even farther; constantly pushing creative boundaries... kinda like Gram Parsons used to do.
