Billy Price


Born November 10, 1949 in Passaic, NJ, t
he "East Coast King of blues-eyed soul" & Pittsburgh PA's dynamo Billy Price initially gained notoriety as vocalist on two records by legendary guitarist Roy Buchanan ("That's What I'm Here For" , "Livestock") before creating his own Billy Price and the Keystone Rhythm Band in 1977, which  recorded four critically acclaimed albums over the next 13 years ("Is It Over", "They Found Me Guilty", "Live" & "Free at Last").

In 1990 Price formed the Billy Price Band and released the 50s homage "Danger Zone" for Corona Records. "The Soul Collection" followed before Price enlisted the legendary Swamp Dogg to produce the excellent "Can I Change My Mind", which in addition to a unique take on the title cut included several new songs from Dogg (Jerry Williams).

Currently with Bonedog Records, Price & band have dropped "East End Avenue".
