Billy Stobo

Born from the tradition of bringing good stories to music, Brother Billy’s first release “Don’t Fall Asleep on the Tracks” has conjured up spirits of the past with tales of jilted love, pointed historical commentary, and folks having raucous good time.

With the evocative puberty anthem “Red Ribbon” to the cynical retort of “Your Grand Design” he gets right to the sweet, the sad, and the naughty.

His Hopeless Choir is a revolving door of many talented musicians that give a little to help a lot in lifting up the spirit of his oh-so-spirited music.

From the snow-capped mountains of Oklahoma to the pale-painted deserts of Louisiana – from the coal-firing cost of California to the sweeping serenity of New York City – everyone could use the kind of smile that comes from spending a little time with Brother Billy.
