All Music Guide:
Singer/songwriter Billy Harvey was born in Evanston, IL, though he moved several times during his early years, finally ending up in Chicago where he attended high school. After graduating, he moved to San Francisco hoping to start a band. While living out of a VW van he joined a band called Flame, which was together for six years and released two records. Having never been the vocalist and having written songs along the way, Harvey started playing solo around the Bay Area. The location didn't seem right to him, so he relocated to Austin, TX, where he has since worked with such artists as Trish Murphy, Kacy Crowley, and Steve Poltz. Harvey's releases include the More Happy Than Sad EP and two full-length albums, Toast and Pie.
