Oakland dwelling musician Levi Thomas spent the first half of his twenties in his hometown of Springfield, Missouri as a singer and guitarist in the scuzz-psych outfit, Ghost Dance, releasing one album and extensively touring the Midwest and South. In 2014 he began writing what would later become his debut album, Billie. Conceived partially in Missouri with his eyes on the coast and completed upon arrival in Oakland, Billie is an ode to the timeless American tale of heading west looking for rebirth.

Recorded in 2016 by Winston Goertz-Giffen at Santo Studio in Oakland, Billie draws from a lifetime of influences ranging from his Ozarks roots music upbringing to the cosmic troubadours of the early 70s, with a nod to the down tempo neo-psychedelia of the early 90s.
