She’s not coming to Cleveland. C’mon, Pittsburgh is only a two-hour drive! Yes, gas is expensive (as are tickets!), but, c’mon, is there really a price tag one can put on the experience of seeing the world’s hottest artist, Billie Eilish performing live in concert? I didn’t think so.
Eilish is best known for her smash hits including “Bad Guy,” “Therefore I am,” “Ocean Eyes,” “No Time Today,” (James Bond theme song), and “Everything I wanted,” among a handful of others (many more than an artist her age should have!)
Eilish is current on the road in support of her sophomore LP, ‘Happier Than Ever.’ Billie co-wrote wrote the album with her frequent collaborator (and brother) Finneas O’Connell, who produced the album himself. Eilish cited self-reflection during the COVID-19 pandemic as the biggest inspiration for the record.
Primarily a downtempo pop record, ‘Happier Than Ever’ is characterized by sparse, jazz-influenced, electropop arrangements set to meditative tempos, departing from the upbeat, trap-led sound of Eilish’s debut studio album, ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ (2019). Consisting of torch songs about the downsides of stardom, ‘Happier Than Ever‘ draws heavily from Eilish’s rise to fame and the drawbacks that come with it. Upon release, the album collected acclaim from music critics, who praised its stylistic, restrained production, and insightful lyrics
Eilish has received several accolades, including seven Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, and one Guinness World Record. She was named in Time magazine’s inaugural Time 100 Next list in 2019, and made it into the main Time 100 list in 2021. According to the RIAA and Billboard, Eilish is the 26th-highest-certified digital singles artists and one of the most successful artists of the 2010s.
In addition, Eilish received an impressive 7 GRAMMY® nominations for the 64th GRAMMY Awards® set to take place January 31st, 2022, and is now the youngest artist to be nominated twice in major categories; Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance in GRAMMY Award® history.
Eilish also received the Best Music Video nomination as the director for her music video for ‘Happier Than Ever,’ as well as Best Music Film for ‘Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter To Los Angeles.’
At only 20 years old, WILLOW has spent half her life in the music industry. With lately I feel EVERYTHING, a decade of growth both in the industry and as a young woman come to a head. Her album is a love letter to that constant evolution. She began working on the record in 2020, during the pandemic. With all the extra time on her hands at home, she began recording demos that she would later re-record when she felt like she could safely enter a studio. It was a new process for her, born out of caution, but it helped her capture the rawness of her new sound. On the forthcoming record, WILLOW channels the pop-punk and emo heroes she adored as a teenager, like Avril Lavigne, My Chemical Romance and Paramore. “I thought this was a really dope outlet for a new energy I wanted to bring to my music,” she says.
All songs on lately I feel EVERYTHING, were written by WILLOW with production and co-writing on select tracks from her longtime collaborator Tyler Cole. The album was recorded in Los Angeles at Conway Studios with additional drums by Matt Chamberlain. WILLOW plays guitar throughout.
