In the Summer of 2011, William Dodge Moody, aka Billy Dodge, escaped to a family cottage located in Southern Massachusetts to write what would soon be called the “Elephant” EP: a small but powerful compilation of songs which could be best described as just over twenty minutes of resurrected nostalgia. Since then, Billy Dodge has entered into the Boston music scene, hitting Boston/Cambridge/Somerville venues, saving up to complete his first full length album. Billy's sound could be classified as a unique blend of folk, rock, Americana, and reggae. In 2012, Billy joined forces with local Boston singer, Eleanor Kaufman, who now provides her soulful voice, which has a striking resemblance to the tone of Florence Welch, as well as her backing band.
Billy resides in South Boston, MA and continues to pick away at well-known local venues including TT the Bears and the Middle East and is still in the middle of recording his full length record in Somerville, MA.
