Atmospheric dream-pop quartet Billie Gale is a musical monument to songwriter Beth Garber’s late mother. Billie Gale—the woman—was a classic feminist, a combination of soft and strong, and the band that bears her name shares this intense duality. The band’s enveloping shoegaze textures blanket singer, and primary songwriter, Beth’s boldly vulnerable lyrical outcries.
“Billie Gale is an entity with her own personality, and we all add to that as a band,” Beth shares.
Billie Gale explores beauty borne out of devastating loss. Beth’s songs are literate, introspective, viscerally expressive, and impressionistic, often evoking the rainy-day environs of her native Pacific Northwest. Beth favors clever use of language, intriguing rhyme schemes, and honesty in her writing. She’s influenced by a broad array of artists and writers, including Joni Mitchell, Flannery O’Connor, David Bazan (Pedro The Lion), Aesop Rock, and Death Cab for Cutie, among others.
