Happy Fall!

Billy is staying in the Southeast area this month and next. If you are in TN, GA, FL, or NC, see the sidebar for show details and come on out.

Happy Accident
The new CD will be done in October! The recording has gone fabulously, editing has been wonderfully tedious, and now the tinkering continues with "mixing" (final blending of all the recorded elements). Plus, the graphic designing is coming along beautifully.

On a recent Studio Stroll in West Asheville, Billy walked into the gallery of Barbara Fisher. He was so drawn to her work that her art will appear on his upcoming CD, Happy Accident. Barbara's mixed-media paintings "incorporate her personal vocabulary of iconic forms, glyphs, and objects into mysterious landscape-like spaces. The relationships between these elements are mysterious and dynamic, and they result in a new and strangely harmonious reality." Check her out by visiting

Billy Jonas With Orchestra?!
We've had a number of offers for symphonic 'pops' concerts. Now, scores are being developed of Billy's songs with orchestral accompaniment. There's nothing like having a 128-piece back-up band! We'll keep you posted as the events are finalized.

For those of you wanting to learn to play Billy's songs (or who have previously requested sheet music), the Billy Jonas Songbook is underway! The first two songs—"God Is In" and What Kind of Cat are You?!—have been the most requested and are now available by emailing
