Billy Michael has been a prominent and popular performer in the Connecticut area for decades. His success as a solo artist and membership in an impressive number of duos and bands has led him to possess a vast knowledge of music and an incomparable talent. Among many accomplishments, Billy is the proud founder of the performance group and program known as “Jazz for Juniors”, which allows young musicians of all skill levels and instruments a chance to develop as performers and artists. It is through this program that he met and influenced Anna Bishop.
Anna Bishop is a nineteen-year-old singer and college student. She has been performing with Billy since she was twelve and, in that time, has amassed a massive repertoire of songs in nearly every genre. In high school, Anna was a National Young Arts Merit Winner in the category of Popular Voice two years in a row. She has also been in several television commercials including, Goldfish, Longhorn Steakhouse, and Rite-aid. While Anna possesses an innate talent for singing, she attributes her success and skill as a performer to her time spent with Billy Michael.
Billy and Anna recently came together to form the duo “Hey 19!” They perform everything from jazz standards to country and classic rock to modern pop and often take requests. In the few months since the duo’s conception, they’ve played a wide variety of restaurants and events in the Connecticut area. Hey19! strives to play something for everyone and guarantees that you will leave their gigs with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.
