"Davies is mostly an autodidact whose natural talent, relentless, explorative spirit and multifaceted experiences have led to an innovative approach to jazz." (Hryar Attarian) "With a background in Classical and Jazz and a lifetime of musical experiences in jams, performances, recordings and music production, the listener is treated to jazz inclinations within her ensembles that bristle with cutting-edge freshness." (C.J. Bond) Billie has played Jazz, Avant-garde jazz, and Avant-Jazz with Leroy Vinnegar, John Handy, Joe Fuentes, Saul Kaye (on Cobra Basemento, Dreams), Michael Godwin (on Cobra Basemento, Dreams), Lee Elfenbein (on Dreams), Drew Waters, Pierre Swärd, Tom Bone Ralls (on all about Love.), Manny Silvera, Oliver Steinberg (on all about Love.), Daniel Coffeng (on 12 VOLT), Adam Levy (on 12 VOLT), Will Mack, et al. and had guest appearances all over the Northern West Coast. It is these experiences that have shaped Billie into the intuitive and inventive drummer she is today. Her playing style reminds us a lot of Billy Hart. (from Wikipedia.)
