Billy The Riff Billy The Riff Lingfield Freddie "Billy The Riff", may be young but his age belies the talent and for someone who has been writing songs, since the age of ten, it’s no surprise that he now finds himself ensconced in the higher echelons of the Songwriting World. Freddie has spent the past five years, putting together various bands and writing for them, alongside writing solo albums and constantly striving to work on his love of Songwriting and Performing. A year ago, after finding three guys who fitted his ideals, he launched the now much talked about band, Hydrocele. Having already played at venues ranging from Tileyard Studios through to the legendary KOKO, released five critically acclaimed singles and an album currently being recorded, Hydrocele are rapidly rising through the ranks. Alongside his work with Hydrocele, Freddie is constantly writing new songs, these being in all genres and styles. He has worked with some great Producers, Writers and Performers and has also become something of a fixture on a succession of different Songwriting camps, writing with top writers from across the globe. With a Universal Music songwriting camp in Poland, a DWB camp in Spain and London for the Notting Hill Music camp, Freddie is constantly working. His songs are currently being pitched to A list artists and with further sessions to come at the various songwriting camps and separate sessions lined up with the likes of E.N.V Music, KNOXA, Zävodi, Darren Alboni etc. expect to be hearing a lot of songs on stage, streaming sites, TV and radio with Freddie on the writing credits.
