We wish Billy a VERY Happy 47th Birthday and have created a video to help celebrate!
THE ALPHA INVENTION (World Premiere)
Director: Mark Towers. Cast: Billy Boyd, William Hope.
“One might argue that their success is largely due to an actor in their midst. I would personally argue against that. Despite having Billy Boyd as front man, Beecake’s fans are chiefly fans for the music. Their sound is a smooth indie-rock, with side-long rolling synths and Beatles-esque chord changes. Their sound is full and perfectly orchestrated. Strong lead vocals are supported with floaty backing vocals and interspersed with jangling tambourine and tinkling piano – something not often found in the electronically-dominated music of today.”
A very nice Beecake review, read the rest HERE!
Often when one thinks of Glasgow, a dark, gritty city comes to mind. Billy Boyd, a Glasgow native has become “annoyed” that a city he holds dear can be viewed in such a negative light.
