Billie Eilish is primed to make a splash in pop music, and she can thank her musical family for helping reveal her passion at a young age.
Eilish began performing when she joined the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus at 8 years old, and her trajectory got even more impressive in the following formative years: She began writings songs at 11, and by 14 was signed with Interscope records.
Now 16, the singer-songwriter has been compared to Lorde for her dark style, deep lyrics, and prodigious talent, but she also stands out on her own: Since releasing her debut single “Ocean Eyes” in 2015, she’s been featured on the 13 Reasons Why soundtrack, collaborated with Vince Staples, and garnered nearly 10 million views for her music video “Bellyache.”
Fans will be able to see Eilish in concert during her nine-date, sold-out European tour in February. In the spring, Eilish will embark on a nearly-sold out North American tour. Visit her website for ticketing information.

Camilizers in the UK, great news!
Camila Cabello has announced her first ever headline solo tour – and she will be visiting the UK following a range of dates in the US and Canada, before wrapping up in Amsterdam.
The ‘Havana’ singer and former Fifth Harmony member is coming over as part of the Never Be the Same Tour in June later this year.
She has been booked to play Glasgow‘s O2 Academy on Tuesday, June 5 and Birmingham‘s O2 Academy on Wednesday, June 6.
Then, she will perform at London‘s O2 Academy Brixton on Tuesday, June 12.
Tickets go on sale this Friday (February 16) at 9am.
Camila’s debut solo album has already broken an iTunes record, and she recently described being close to tears when she saw her old bandmates take an apparent dig at her during their MTV Video Music Awards performance.
Back in August 2017, Fifth Harmony took to the stage to perform ‘Down’ and ‘Angel’ with a fifth band member (seemingly representing Camila), who they quickly disposed of at the start of the performance.
“It definitely hurt my feelings,” Camila said, recalling that moment.

“I wasn’t expecting it. I wasn’t prepared for it, especially because at that point I’d moved on from it. I was just like, ‘What? Why?’
“I have to make space for the good stuff to happen in my life. I don’t like holding onto the past, especially when it’s stuff that, in my opinion, is just petty.”
Camila will also make an appearance on this weekend’s Dancing on Ice.
