Billie Eilish

Singer, Songwriter – “Ocean Eyes,” “bellyache,” dont smile at me
15-year-old Los Angeles songstress Billie Eilish resembles something of a fairy tale heroine—albeit with a wicked sense of humor, and inimitable fashion sense filtered through a kaleidoscope of hip-hop, grunge, and glam tendencies ready to practically levitate above any runway. It’s this kind of je nais sais quoi that fueled the meteoric rise of her debut single “Ocean Eyes.” Produced by big brother Finneas O’Connell, the siblings uploaded the track to SoundCloud and it became a veritable phenomenon, with the song hitting #1 on the Spotify U.S. Viral chart and #3 on the Global Viral chart. In between signing to Darkroom/Interscope in 2016, Vogue decried her as “Pop’s Next It Girl,” and she has since received praise from the likes of Charli XCX and Tove Lo, plus support from Teen Vogue, ELLE, Rolling Stone, Billboard, V, W, Zane Lowe of Beats1, BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and many more.
From within the family’s East Los Angeles quaint creative oasis, her parents homeschooled Billie where she went on to develop a keen appetite for music discovery, learning to play and write music plus combing the internet at large for underground artists.
Since the release of “Ocean Eyes,” Billie’s brand of “gloom pop,” as she appropriately dubs it has gone on to accumulate 140+ million combined streams. She has since performed the song on CBS’ The Late Late Show With James Corden, has SOLD OUT headlining tours in America, Australia, U.K and Europe and was recently named as Apple Music’s latest UpNext artist. The future is bright for newcomer Billie Eilish whose debut EP dont smile at me is out now and features fan favorites “bellyache,” “COPYCAT,” “idontwanttobeyouanymore,” “watch,” “my boy,” “party favor” and “hostage.”
