MuzicNotez Crew: First off, it’s an honor to be doing this interview with you, thanks for taking the time to sit down with us.
What motivated you to start creating music? What age did you begin?
Walter Billingsley: I’ve always had a great love for music and understood how music has the ability impact people on such a profound level. I started working professionally at 9 years old and have always loved to perform live. I’m driven by my own passion to create and perform and also to use music as a tool to positively impact the planet.
MuzicNotez Crew: Who were your musical influences, idols, or bands growing up that have helped mold you into the musician you are today? Or helped mold the music that you create?
Walter: I grew up listening to music from the 50’s 60′ 70’s and love old hits and the freedom of the 70’s but I would have to say my most inspirational artists were those of the early 80’s. Mainly Michael Jackson and Madonna. Two incredible artists who know how to put on a show and how to send a message. Another more recent inspiration would be GAGA, as I find it refreshing and inspirational to see an artist perform their music their way with out molding themselves to fit the usual and expected stereotypes.
MuzicNotez Crew: What’s the ultimate goal you want your music to achieve, or for you to achieve in your career as a musician? Any particular message you wish to send?
Walter: I ultimately wish to continue to travel the world to perform and express myself through music. I also want to win at least 1 grammy, hopefully more! My main goal with my music and live shows is to always influence on a positive level and inspire as many as I can to live a full exciting life and to always go for your dreams. I support equal human rights and encourage all to do the same.
MuzicNotez Crew: What’s the greatest concert you’ve ever been to or performed?
Walter: I’ve been impressed by so many artists. From Gaga, Beyonce, Xtina, Pink but I have to say Kylie Minogue puts on the best concerts from start to finish. But nothing has been as exhilarating as Motley Crue live – yes I went to their concert and it was awesome. For me, well performing live at the 2000 Olympic Games still goes down as one of my most memorable performances with over 120,000 live in the audience and 60 million watching on the telly – that was pretty cool.
