Women Music March 2021 – Day 20 – Billie Eilish


Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell (born December 18, 2001) is an American singer, songwriter, and model. Her debut studio album debuted atop the Billboard 200 and reached number one in the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.  Eilish co-wrote most of the record alongside her brother Finneas O’Connell, who handled its production. Musically, the album has been characterized as a pop, avant-pop, art pop, and electropop record, though features several other genre influences including hip hop and industrial music. Upon its release, the album was praised by music critics for its subject matter, songwriting and cohesion.

Discography: 1 album in 2019

More things to share:
Eilish is a regular advocate on social media for animal rights and veganism, and among others has criticized the dairy, wool, and mink fur industries. In 2019, she won a PETA “Best Voice for Animals” award for her activism.

Eilish has also been involved in supporting United States voting rights, starting in 2020, suggesting that her fans pick a group working to register voters to support. In August 2020, Eilish performed at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, and announced her endorsement of Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

As of 2020, Eilish lives with her parents in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. She revealed she has Tourette syndrome and depression, and experiences synesthesia. In a 2020 radio interview, her parents revealed they considered taking her to therapy over her childhood obsession with Justin Bieber.

Eilish was inspired to write “Xanny” after attending a party at which her friends “kept throwing up, kept drinking more,” consequently becoming “completely not who they were”. While recording the song, Eilish and her brother created a sound inspired by a girl blowing cigarette smoke in the former’s face alongside a drum kit and a jazz-inspired loop in order to replicate the feeling of being “in secondhand smoke”.

  2. While Billie Eilish isn’t my cup of tea based on what I’ve heard, I commend you for including a contemporary young artist in your series. I’ve been enjoying it. I think you also inspired me to do my own post celebrating female music artists as part of Women’s History Month. I’ll keep it to 10 artists. Stay tuned… 🙂

      1. March! I actually thought that was the anchor for your series. 🙂

        Regardless, female artists and all women for that matter should get the recognition they deserve, and it shouldn’t be limited to any day, week or month of the year!

      I’ve got her album and really like it but I haven’t listened to it a lot. Amazing how young she is. Her brother is quite popular also from what I read on wiki.
