MEET BILLY FALCON – THE PATRIOT BEHIND “NEVER SURRENDER”!
We have all been listening to the great song by Billy Falcon titled, “Never Surrender” and many have said this should be played at every patriotic event! We love the words, the sound, the music, and how it gives our very soul much hope and it inspires the heart! So, I felt it would be good for people to also meet the man behind the song.
Billy isn’t a newcomer on the music scene, he has been around a long time and is a talented, and very humble American icon. He is a musician, composer and music producer. He released rock albums throughout the late 1970s and 1980s, as well as appearing on The Way International‘s “High Country Caravan”. He is currently active in the Nashville, Tennessee area with the band The Sowing Circle.
He signed his first record contract with a major label at age 18. Falcon, a prolific writer, considers himself a “reporter” of his life experiences in lyrics and melodies.
Pretty Blue World, released in 1991, produced Falcon’s highest-charting single, “Power Windows“, which broke into the Top 40. The same album contains “Heaven’s Highest Hill”, which articulates the pain of having to tell his three-year-old daughter that her mother had died, echoing the true-life event of the loss of his wife Myla to breast cancer.
He signed a deal with Mercury Records after Jon Bon Jovi contacted him about working together in the early 1990s. Falcon has co-written over thirty songs on several Bon Jovi albums. “Give in to Me”, co-written with Falcon’s daughter Rose and Elisha Hoffman, is featured in the Sony Pictures film Country Strong and performed by Faith Hill on the film’s soundtrack. Other songs he has written have been covered by Stevie Nicks, Cher, Manfred Mann, Sherrie Austin, Meat Loaf and Trace Adkins. Over his career, Falcon has released a dozen albums.
Falcon has lived in Nashville for the past 19 years. Over the past four years, he has performed with the band The Sowing Circle and continues to write, perform, record and produce albums for artists, including his daughter Rose Falcon.
