Billy Lemos picks 10Trax for Notion as he shares his debut album 'Wonder'.
Born in Iowa but now based in Chicago, producer/artist Billy Lemos refuses to be boxed in with his music.
Featuring notable collabs from Still Woozy, Danny Dwyer, MTMBO, Jonah Mutono, Lava La Rue, Monsune, and more, Billy’s debut album ‘Wonder’ is a 10-track journey of eclectic miniatures.
On the project, Billy explained: “’Wonder’ is the result of over two years of constant curation and production towards one cohesive project. I wanted to create something that had zero filler; a collection of songs that densely packed ideas spanning multiple genres and styles. Working on the album has been a far more rewarding process than just pushing out single after single. Despite the constant pressure against traditional albums from the industry and move toward playlist-ready releases, making this album was exactly what I needed. This album would be nothing without the contributions of every artist involved”.
