Billy Sunday, born in Kanyakumari, a district of Tamil Nadu, currently resides in Bangalore. Right from his childhood, he had a keen interest towards music. At an early age of 11, he started playing the keyboard in a Church. His passion for music made him explore various musical instruments. At this juncture he strongly felt that his hands were tuned to play the Lead Guitar; there was no turning back ever since. It was a journey of vigorous practice, sleepless nights (would rather rephrase it as musical nights)! He has a wide range of musical influence from Blues to Metal, not limiting himself to any specific genre. Besides playing the guitar and keyboard, he also plays drums and bass guitar. He has performed in various concerts and has also played in studio recording as a session guitarist.
