BILLIONAIRE (AKA John Sterry) from London is the former frontman of Gaoler's Daughter and then Andy Gill's newly formed Gang of Four.

Prolific songwriter John Sterry demonstrated his talent previously through other projects and bands. Delivering the stellar 'Fine Minds' EP in 2015 he showcased a more personal undertaking with a low-fi and DIY approach. He then released the follow-up the 'Cheap Credit' EP on Blue Mary Records in early 2017. Fresh from touring the US fronting seminal post-punk group Gang of Four he hit the road again, but this time with his own band and a bit closer to home. He will be playing a string of dates across the UK in 2017/18.

Politically and culturally aware, the artist feeds this information into his song-writing a noir-driven and deeply atmospheric piece of pop music. - Clash Music

Billionaire's sound is minimal, moody and mysterious. Whilst his lyrics conjure thoughts of contradictions, irony and blunt honesty (along with his music name of choice)
Wonderland
