More About BilliePreston

Two events happened when I was young which shaped my life, completely.... My sister Lynn taught me how to play fingerstyle guitar, and I joined church choir. My life has been unending growth and branching out in these two areas. I sing. I play guitar. I sing in choir, still. I'm a cantor at the cathedral here in town.(although I'm not catholic) I conduct. I teach voice, piano, guitar, and ukulele. All I do is music. OK. I do other things, like eat and sleep, and garden. But mostly, it's music.
My name is luck of the draw. My dad's name is William. My mother's middle name is Preston. So I got the name Billie Preston. I'm thinking Billie Preston will be my stage name now and forever.
I'm not usually a solo performer. I can sing and play by myself, and have... but I much prefer singing/playing with others, and acoustically, with my close friend Robin Roberts. We have released two CDs, and we're on here as /robinbillie
Fun Stuff about the Artist

My Instrument

Long, long ago, when I was 16-ish, a friend/mentor of mine helped me pick out my first steel-string guitar. We went to a local guitar shop, and I bought an Epiphone. But while we were looking, I saw my first Guild guitar. It was beautiful. And when I played it, the sound filled the store. But it was very expensive, to me in my world.

Since that day, I've wanted a Guild guitar. And a few years ago, I got one. I love it every time I pick it up. Playing it is a dream.
