Poor Billy

Poor Billy combines rootsrock with their very own musical
style. They build a bridge between past and present, and
between American and European musictradition. They play
modern rock with a raw, energy-filled and passionate
atmosphere.
The singer Karsten Olesen finds inspiration for the stories he
tells, in his imagination and in haphazard observations. These
stories are the foundation for Poor Billys musical universe.
