More About Billie Preston

Two events happened when I was seven years old which shaped my life, completely. My sister Lynn taught me how to play fingerstyle guitar, and I joined church choir. My life has been unending growth and branching out in these two areas. I sing. I play guitar. I sang in choir and was a cantor at the cathedral here in town. I have been a conductor. I teach voice, piano, guitar, and ukulele. All I do is music. OK. I do other things, like eat and sleep, and garden. But mostly, it's music.
My name is luck of the draw. My dad's name is William. My mother's middle name is Preston. So I got the name Billie Preston. I'm thinking Billie Preston will be my stage name now and forever.
I'm not usually a solo performer. I can sing and play by myself, and have... but I much prefer singing/playing with others, and acoustically, with my close friend Robin Roberts. We have released three CDs, and 17 singles.

Fun Stuff about the Artist

My Instrument

Long, long ago, when I was 16-ish, a friend/mentor of mine helped me pick out my first steel-string guitar. We went to a local guitar shop, and I bought an Epiphone. But while we were looking, I saw my first Guild guitar. It was beautiful. And when I played it, the sound filled the store. But it was very expensive, to me in my world.

Since that day, I've wanted a Guild guitar. And several years ago, I got one. I love it every time I pick it up. Playing it is a dream.
