"BILLY FALCON IS EVERYTHING YOU'D WANT TO BE; A SONGWRITER WHOSE STORYTELLING IS FUELED BY EMOTION AND PERFORMER WHO WILL NOT OFFER HIS SEATBELT AS HE TAKES YOU ON A RIDE YOUR NOT LIKELY TO FORGET....EVER." JON BON JOVI.
Someone once said that, after silence, music comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible.
Singer/songwriter Billy Falcon’s music has a way of doing just that.
As an artist uses color, Falcon uses words and music to convey life’s beauty and fragility,the joy, and the heartache, the disappointment, and always, the hope.
Billy grew up in Rosedale Queens. He signed his first record contract with a major label at age 18. A prolific writer, Billy is a self-described reporter, chronicling his life experiences with poetic lyrics and stirring melodies.
Heaven’s Highest Hill from the critically acclaimed “Pretty Blue World” album articulates the pain of having to tell his three-year old daughter that her mother had died. The rawness of the experience is captured in both the lyrics and Falcon’s performance, yet the overwhelming theme of the song is the endlessness of love and the beginnings of hope.
The song, which relays Falcon’s tragedy of losing his 29 year old wife to breast cancer, is extraordinarily personal and yet resonates with anyone who has experienced loss.
Power Windows, the single from the same album, and an anthem for those who have figured out what is really important and meaningful in life, was a Top 40 hit and propelled album sales to
Billy has released eleven albums, each remaining true to his hallmark of beautifully crafted songs with lyrics that move the listener to laugh, cry, think, remember, and always, to hope.
Stevie Nicks, Cher, Manfred Mann, Sherrie Austin, and Trace Adkins have covered Falcon’s songs, amongst others. He has also co-written over a dozen cuts on the last six Bon Jovi albums, including Just Older, Last Man Standing, Everybody's Broken, and When We Were Beautiful on the new record, The Circle.
His latest record, Made Man, a dozen songs with his new band, is something he's truly excited about. We hope you will be also! Cashbox Magazine named Brick Off A Bridge an ALL INDIE PICK.
The new record has also been featured on NY Radio:
Q104.3 Jonathan Clark’s Out Of The Box
102.3 WBAB Fingers’ Homegrown

Will stop by and listen to you and Rose. Ahh Rose, my mom's name. I also remember Billy Falcon and the Burning Rose. One of high school bandmates and old co-writer may have played for you way back when. His name is Ken Eichler. I also had Hugh MacDonald play on a couple of my older tunes. My wife is a huge Bon Jovi fan and I'm the type that reads the CD inserts. I saw and listened to your tunes and absolutely loved them! jon was lucky to have you on those cd's. Best of luck and I'll be adding your's and Rose's tunes in the next day or two. Gotta help the wife set the Easter table!!

Have You Heard?
Billy, as you may know, has been making great music for over thirty years now.
Perhaps you remember Power Windows, Pretty Blue World or Wonder Years;
Or you’ve heard the songs he’s written for others: Trace Adkins, Manfred Mann
Or Stevie Nicks; or perhaps the songs he’s penned with Jon Bon Jovi like
Just Older, Last Man Standing or Bounce?
Well, he’s back with a dozen new songs that capture the Joy, the Sorrow,
the Struggle, the Hope;
