Billie Black – Going Under

Billie Black is a 20 year old jazz singer and songwriter from London. She began singing at an early age after hearing reggae, soul and disco records at her Mum’s family parties – a Mum who, it should be noted, was Sierra Leone’s national disco dancing champion. At 13 Billie joined the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and starting a love affair with jazz that led all the way to a place on the Guildhall jazz degree (where she is now). At 14 Billie went to the Brit School, where she was exposed to a wide variety of music and it was towards the end of her time there she started listening to James Blake, Jessie Ware, Sampha and Kwabs; acts who combine classic vocals with electronic production.

From that point on Billie started writing her own music, putting together a band and working with producers Imposters & John Calvert on a sound that combined her roots in jazz with the bass and dance sounds of the moment. Anyone coming to her first show on 15th July will hear songs that range from minimalist electronic ballads to RnB to all-out floor-fillers. Billie will be releasing a first EP this summer.

Billie Black – Going Under Lyrics:
When the blows come around
And the lows come around
And time stops
I hold on, on
When there’s no hope in sight
And there’s nowhere to run to
And my mind trips
I hold on, on

Just when I feel I’m going under
Just when I feel I’m going under
Just when I feel I’m going under
Just when I feel I’m going under

(x2)
Just when I feel I’m going under
I can close my eyes and think of you
Just when I feel I’m going under
There’s a way and it will see me through

When the blows come around
And that throws me around
And time drops
I hold on

(x2)
Just when I feel I’m going under
I can close my eyes and think of you
Just when I feel I’m going under
There’s a way and it will see me through
