Billie Eilish

From the age of 14, American pop singer Billie Eilish began building a music career through promoting herself on social media and by the time she released her debut single “Ocean Eyes" in 2018 at the age of 17 she had an audience ready and waiting for her material. She was born on December 18, 2001, into a family of actors and musicians of Irish and Scottish descent, her full name being Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell. “Ocean Eyes” was written by her brother Finneas O'Connell and was originally destined to be played by his own band. After his sister gave a copy of the track to her dance teacher, it was decided that Billie herself should record it and it was released worldwide through Interscope Records. Following the commercial success of “Ocean Eyes”, in 2017 she released the follow-up singles “Bellyache” and “Bored,” which featured on the TV series show 13 Reasons Why, as well as her debut EP Don't Smile at Me. March 2019 marked the release of her debut studio album When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which featured the singles “Bury a Friend,” “Wish You Were Gay,” “You Should See Me in a Crown” and “When the Party's Over.” The album’s success catapulted Billie Eilish into stardom as she became the youngest person to win all four main categories at the 62nd Grammy Awards. In 2020, Billie Eilish scored the title track from the Bond movie No Time to Die and collaborated with Spanish singer Rosalía on the single “Lo Vas a Olvidar.” The following year, she was the subject of the film Billie Eilish: The World's a Little Blurry, which documented both her early life and her rapid ascent to fame. Her second album Happier Than Ever saw the light in July 2021 and topped the charts in the US, the UK, and in several countries throughout Europe thanks to the Top 10 singles “My Future” and “Therefore I Am.”
