    Singer/songwriter Billy Grima on Music as Medicine for Life

    in Performing Arts

    How is writing a hook or humming a melody medicine? Join us as Canadian singer/songwriter Billy Grima talks about writing songs, how music touches people in need, and his critically acclaimed albums.


    Billy Grima is a singer/ songwriter living in the Caledon Hills of Ontario, Canada. Born in Blacktown, NSW Australia, Billy started writing at a very young age and was singing in a church choir by the age of 8 years old. At 15, Billy moved to Canada and settled in Toronto. Like classic singer/songwriters, Billy Joel, Jim Croce, James Taylor and Bob Dylan, life's daily realities and everyday events are a source of Billy's inspiration. His smooth and soulful sound has earned him comparisons to contemporaries Jason Mraz, Ed Sheeran, Jack Johnson and even Bruno Mars. 


    Billy has 3 albums to his credit: I'm Just Standing , A Little Piece Of Heaven and his latest, titled Sugar & Cream, produced and engineered by Pete Swann (Glass Tiger’s Alan Connely, Adrian and Justin Lifeson, sons of Rush’s Alex Lifeson.) Sugar & Cream features a tasty blend of pop, rock, soul and Americana, including the first single, “Pleasure To Have Met You.”  The album is going for worldwide radio adds this spring. 


    In 2015, he performed at the TexasSounds Country Music Awards and won a prestigious Akademia Award for Best Rock/Pop song with "Pleasure To Have Met You."
