"There's no mistaking the passion, the presence of dedication, or the obvious talent for brilliant song writing.... Hard edged compositions with more than a foot in the genre of punk rock but, and this is where the wonder lies, governed and sustained by the predominant guidance of the acoustic guitar"

‘Excellent- honesty and integrity- that’s what we need!’
TV SMITH (The Adverts)
Acoustic punk poet, Billy Liar, released second EP ‘It Starts Here’ on April 3rd 2009. Produced by legendary American musician Acey Slade (Trashlight Vision/Murderdolls) the record also features Robin Guy (Faith No More/Bruce Dickinson/Rachel Stamp) on drums and Nick Mailing (The Smoking Hearts/Quireboys) on bass. Nick also undertook the position of studio engineer for these sessions.
Recorded in a studio on the outskirts of London ‘It Starts Here’ looks set to further enhance the popularity of the Glasgow based singer/songwriter. He’s already built himself a stunning legacy courtesy of his 2007 debut EP which received extensive radio airplay, with the song ‘Come Back To Edinburgh’ becoming a particular favourite with both the media and public alike. His profile within the music business, especially on the live circuit, has escalated quite remarkably. His own style of acoustic driven punk poetry depicts snapshots of sensitivity, love, desperation and frustration on the streets. It is this unpretentious and honest songwriting that has captured the imagination of an ever-increasing fan base.
The new EP offers much of the same honesty and integrity – with the added bonus of the aforementioned majesties of their professions making up the rest of the band. Billy Liar will be touring in support of the new record. For dates and locations, and any further info, visit www.myspace.com/billyliarmusic
