About this image

Billie Davies is a jazz drummer, composer and bandleader best known for her Avant-garde, Free Jazz and Avant-garde Jazz compositions since the mid nineties, and her improvisational drumming techniques she has performed in Europe and in the US. Billie Davies hails originally from Brugge, Belgium and mostly grew up on the Belgian Coast at the North Sea in Europe. She played and performed all over Europe, in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece until a move to the United States at 32 gave her an opportunity to play all over the west coast in Oregon and California. On November 14, 2013 while living in Hollywood, Billie Davies received the "Jazz Artist Of The Year" Award by the 23rd Annual Los Angeles Music Awards. In March of 2014 she made a permanent move to New Orleans where she has graced the stages ever since and recorded her new album "Hand In Hand In The Hand Of The Moon" which was released in New Orleans in October of 2015. All of her music is improvisational... a conversation between musicians and musical instruments, a joint emotional expression inspired by a certain common feeling, thought or perspective that is being communicated to an audience, a listener, a community.
