Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles is the superb new musical endeavor of Billy Bibby, former and founding lead guitarist of Catfish and the Bottlemen who parted ways with the band shortly after recording their Platinum certified debut album The Balcony.
Made in Lancashire and raised in the Welsh seaside resort of Llandudno. Billy Bibby's voice has all the traditions of a Lancashire hotpot churned together with the excitement of a trip to the beach. Possessing powerful melodic pipes and a set of songs to match. Bibby prides himself on making those records that everyday people will understand and resonate with. Influences from such greats as Elvis Presley, Noel Gallagher and Mark Knopfler most prominent but not defining on his singing and song writing style. Previous work consists of being one of the founding members of hugely popular Catfish and the Bottlemen. Having toured extensively with them (Catfish) as lead guitarist over the past 7 years Billy is no stranger to the stage and is now looking to furrow his own way back to where he belongs.
