Billie-Jo Porter

Billie-Jo Porter is a keen adventurer with music in her heart.  Hailing from in a small country town, south west of Tamworth in NSW, Australia.

Whilst wandering around North America, some where south of the 49th parallel, the songwriter within leapt out.  Developing her own unique style which can be described as an infusion of folk and Americana.

Creatively inspired and influenced by artists such as The Waifs, Kasey Chambers, Tom Petty, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Kevin Bennett and Gillian Welch just to name a few.

Billie-Jo Porter has performed with friends and solo around Australia and North America, in a range of venues including bars, restaurants, street parties and festivals.

Live shows are relaxed and interactive, grass roots blend of stripped back acoustic guitar and honest vocals with variety of covers and Americana style originals.
