Although he’s a showbiz lifer, Billy Vera is cut from a wholly different cloth than his peers. If an artist is measured by their devotion to their craft, BILLY VERA may be the purest treatise on the subject ever produced. In the sixties, Vera paid his bills by songwriting for other grammy winning artists which finally led to a #1 hit of his own. Nine visits to Carson and an American Bandstand appearance later, Vera tasted many other flavors of success: acting, producing records, and reissuing his own work. Today, a photographer and music historian with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a Grammy in tow, he’s finally prepared to share his journey. His new book “BILLY VERA: Harlem to Hollywood” is on stands now with RAVE reviews. To sit down with Billy Vera is to take a personalized tour through nearly fifty incredible years of entertainment history.
