“Billie Gale is an entity with her own personality, and we all add to that as a band,” Beth shares.
Billie Gale explores beauty borne out of devastating loss. Beth’s songs are literate, introspective, viscerally expressive, and impressionistic, often evoking the rainy-day environs of her native Pacific Northwest. Beth favors clever use of language, intriguing rhyme schemes, and honesty in her writing. She’s influenced by a broad array of artists and writers, including Joni Mitchell, Flannery O’Connor, David Bazan (Pedro The Lion), Aesop Rock, and Death Cab for Cutie, among others.
Billie Gale songs are soaked in warm reverb, textured with layers of jeweled counter melodies, and they’re arranged with peaks and valleys dynamics to release pent-up emotions. The band features the sparkling guitarwork and dimensional textures of Adam Wayne; the durable and counter melodic basslines of Eric Shawn; and the expressively intuitive percussion and drums of Justin Wayne. Billie Gale is currently based in Oakland, CA and has performed at venues across the Bay Area and Portland, including the Doug Fir & Rickshaw Stop.
