Some Gentle Career Advice For Billie Eilish

by Shelton Bumgarner

Let me be absolutely clear — no one listens to me and this is just me talking to myself in the darkness of the Internet.

But having said that, I might gently suggest to Billie Eilish that she take a page out of Amy Winehouse’s career and do an album of throwback music. I might suggest she cover some of the jazz and blues greats of the past such as, well, Billie Holiday.

Eilish is already half way there with her current singing style. It would take very little effort on her part to simply sing the songs that obviously are influencing her now.
