ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
To make it in the cutting edge and fiercely competitive music industry, you have to be versatile, innovative, and adaptable. With her finger on the pulse of “what’s hot” across the Eastern seaboard, U.K. native, Billie Myers has proven that she has what it takes to make it to the “top of the pops” by consistently creating music that is thought provoking, sexy and above all things honest.

The story of Myers’ discovery by record producer Peter Q. Harris (Will Smith) while dancing in a nightclub has become one of legend in the music industry. As Myers recalls, “I was dancing around being goofy, and Peter came up and said, “If you sing as good as you dance, we should work on some songs together.” Myers’ giggles, “It’s kind of an embarrassing story. Everybody thinks it happened at a strip joint or something, which of course it didn’t!” Billie eventually entered the studio with world-famed record producer Desmond Child (Ricky Martin, Cher, Robbie Williams). While working on some tracks, Doug Morris, then president of Universal Music, dropped by to visit his pal Child. After hearing Myers he quickly offered the flabbergasted singer a recording deal and only a short time later Myers had an infectious hit single, “Kiss The Rain,” playing on radios across the world.

Possessing both the introspective nature of Tracy Chapman and the unbridled spunk of Chrissie Hynde, Myers excels at weaving poetic narratives around intimate portraits of her life experiences that “leave you intrigued and hungry for more” (vibe).

Myers breakthrough hit single “Kiss The Rain” stayed on Billboard’s Top 100 for over six months, and reached the top ten worldwide, in addition to going gold in the US and Canada, a feat few artists accomplish. The song’s success set off a lengthy period of worldwide touring for the British singer. Included were stints on Lilith Fair, support slots on tours with Bob Dylan and Savage Garden. In addition, the hard-working Myers completed an eighteen month worldwide tour that took her everywhere from Mexico to Brazil to Japan. Along the way Myers appeared on numerous television shows including: “The Tonight Show,” “The Rosie O’Donnell Show,” “Good Morning America,” “VH-1’s Crossroads, The List, and the “How to” special. It wasn’t long after, that requests for Myers’ vocals came pouring in eventually landing her on several TV soundtracks including: “Dawson’s Creek,” “Melrose Place,” “The Real World” as well as numerous Europeans programs.

After the huge success of “Growing Pains” Über -songwriter/producer Diane Warren requested that Myers lend her vocals to her latest gem. The song, “It All Comes Down to You” was featured on the soundtrack and in the movie of the same name. Myers got a taste of Hollywood while shooting the video with the stars of the movie, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Julia Styles. Myers clearly enjoyed her time during the shoot because it wasn’t long before she was acting herself and featured on “Wasteland” and “Purpose.”

“Vertigo,” the highly anticipated follow-up to “Growing Pains” yielded critical praise. Billboard heralded the album stating, “… armed with a fab new album, “Vertigo”, and a catchy single (Am I Here Yet?) Myers is poised to once again wreak havoc on the dance floors.” Co-produced by David Tyson (Tina Arena, Amanda Marshall, and Alannah Myles), Vertigo tackled issues that were even more personal to Myers this time around such as racism, sexism and religious dogmatism. “Am I Here Yet,” reflected Myers’ uncertainty that sudden success brought to the singer. Fans reacted strongly, as did legendary producer/DJ Junior Vasquez who remixed the single into a dance floor anthem and once again Myers found herself at the top of every DJs play list in addition to the Billboard Dance Charts.

Maintaining her tradition of creative, offbeat, songwriting, Myers penned a song for highly rated Cartoon Network series Sitting Ducks and she’s created several animated projects which are being pitched to the networks and production companies.

Myers is currently in the studio collaborating on new material with legendary producer Pat Leonard.

...She returns, come-hither as ever, with seductive dance track "It's Just Sex,"
Brit Billie Myers commanded the worldwide top 20 in 1997 with ethereal "Kiss the Rain," which also triumphed on dancefloors in remix form. She returns, come-hither as ever, with seductive dance track "It's Just Sex," a rollicking uptempo romp whose delicious verses gambol across a melodic carnival imprint topped only by a chorus so intuitive that one would swear this is a remake of a song heard a thousand times before. The Wayne G/Prol Young Radio Edit is definitive, accompanied on the promo by Jake Benson's Junkie Mix, Eddie Baez and Belmares/Preve extended mixes, all of which expand the groove but unfortunately relinquish Myers' presence. Her welcome return has already garnered top 20 club stateside play. Here's hoping that such notice garners a full-on release, with potential for another definitive mainstream hit. —Chuck Taylor
