Full Biography

Billy is an award winning Anglo-Brazilian instrumental guitarist. Inspired by Rodrigo y Gabriela, Tommy Emmanuel & Mike Oldfield, his style fuses the genres of Flamenco & Classical with Rock & Pop. In 2022 he was awarded a diploma of higher education in classical guitar from The Royal College of Music in London.

Billy’s videos of popular songs played in this style have received many millions of views across online platforms & his performances of Bohemian Rhapsody have been praised and shared by both Queen and Brian May’s official channels.

In 2016, aged just 14, he reached the grand final of ‘Guitar Star’ - a guitar based talent show open to all ages for Sky Arts TV which was broadcast worldwide. Billy stunned audiences with some extraordinary performances - for judges and mentors including George Benson, Black Sabbath legend Tony Iommi, and David Bowie’s producer Tony Visconti - who described him as ‘a little genius’.

In 2022, Billy was invited by Adam Wakeman (Black Sabbath/Ozzy Osbourne) to open all of the UK dates of his ‘Jazz Sabbath’ tour, including a sold out show in Birmingham, appearing as special guest on stage with Prog-Rock royalty Rick Wakeman. Later that year he was also invited to open the show for UK rock legends ‘Magnum’ at their 50th anniversary concert at KKs Steel Mill in Wolverhampton.

A regular at UK and European festivals, including 'Guitar Summit' & ‘Musikmesse’ (Germany), ‘Latitude' & ‘Edinburgh Fringe’, he has also appeared at 'Towersey Festival' supporting Midge Ure and ‘The Henley Festival’ - on the same bill as The Pet Shop Boys and Chaka Khan.

Further TV and Radio work includes guest appearances with comedian Rory Bremner at two sold out shows in Edinburgh, and in 2019 Billy was special guest of MOBO award winning saxophonist Yolanda Brown, on her BBC TV show ‘Yolanda’s Band Jam’.

Equally at ease on both steel and nylon strings and refusing to be 'pigeon holed' into a specific style, Billy's live show offers a mesmerizing, genre defying journey, with repertoire spanning Classical, Flamenco and Pop, through to Disco and Classic Rock – all on 1 guitar.

Officially endorsed by several major brands, including Ortega Guitars, who in 2022 released a signature model in his name and regularly performing at music trade shows and exhibitions, Billy is also available for TV and Session Work, Private Bookings, Weddings, Corporate events and Festival Performances. He has full public liability insurance, and is a member of the Musician’s Union.

booked Billy Martinez for their Wedding July 2023

“Wow, wow, wow. Billy stepped in a very short notice and played during our wedding service and reception. I booked him on the morning of the event and to say he hit the mark is an understatment. He played beautifully during the service and managed to turn heads in the crowd with his fantastic playing and more than a few deep cuts caught the ears of what was a musically savvy audience. He has a great presence and a really engaging character, mixing with the guests and getting a feel for their likes. He then played through the drinks reception, hitting all the bases, wowing an appreciative audience with his skill and ability to play across such a diverse catalogue. His own compositions were exquisite and to watch him master a previously un played Indie rock track for my son, was mesmerising. A great afternoon, if you want live music and to witness raw talent, book Billy.”

booked Billy Martinez for their Wedding May 2023

“Billy Martinez is a highly talented, versatile, flexible and gifted guitarist. He is also friendly and charming. We have seen him play at both public and private events like our own wedding and enjoyed them all. With a wide repertoire, which covers famous Spanish and classical guitar works, through to imaginative reworkings of popular music anthems and hits, there is something for a wide range of tastes. We found it easy to plan with him for our wedding and he performed beautifully on the day itself, and was very popular with guests. He also composes his own pieces, which are excellent. We would highly recommend him. He made our day even more special.”

Super Guitarist!

booked Billy Martinez for their event January 2023

“I have been following Billy since seeing him on TV's Guitar Star.....and that's exactly what he is.....a real 'guitar star'! He played at my husbands Memorial in January 2023 and made a very sad event a much easier situation to deal with. All of the guests told me how perfect the music had been, allowing conversations to take place but also allowing guests to sit and enjoy listening to Billy's exceptional playing. He makes playing a guitar look so easy! I try to get to see him play as often as I can along with a few other people who also appreciate and enjoy his talent. Go and see him, you wont be disappointed!”

booked Billy Martinez for their event November 2022

“I first saw Billy support Jazz Sabbath in November 2022. He blew me away with his genius ability, skills that are naturally gifted followed by 20,000 hrs of practice, honing, and dedication to his art. Billy is a must-see artist who plays some of the best music ever written in his amazing and unique style. To add to his musical talent, he has a wonderful personality that shines through when h talks to the audience. Billy is unmissable. Make the effort to see and support this young talented maestro. ”
