LGBTQ+ icon Billy Mick swaps Universal Studios for Manchester in addictive new single!



Give Billy Mick an arena filled with people wanted music, and he will entertain. Based in Florida, this singer-songwriter oozes with energy live and also in the studio too. Back with recently released single 'The Tourist', the track sees Billy recalling his time on holiday in the UK and especially at Pride in Manchester where he felt true acceptance and togetherness,a world away from his return home where he saw signs of increasing racial intolerance and bigotry on the news when he returned. Taken from his forthcoming sophomore album 'Levelling Up', The Tourist gives insight into an exceptional pop record ahead. Detailing the story behind the track, Billy shares, “In 2018, my husband and I attended Manchester Pride as part of our trip to the U.K. We were so amazed at the overwhelming sense of acceptance, love and community we felt when we were there! The streets were filled with drag queens, lesbians, straight people, bears, twinks…and everyone was actually

celebrating together. My prior experiences at some pride events were different - there would be a single big event or parade where people would come together and when it ended everyone would go to their separate parties or bars. It was just so cool and awe inspiring to not only see the diversity but to also be welcomed by everyone we met. We felt very much at home”.
