Like a ray of sunshine, Billie-Jo Porter returns with her uplifting new single 'Eyes Wide Open'. It follows on from her highly successful debut single 'Feels Like Us' which peaked at #1 on the AMRAP Regional Chart, #2 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and #15 on The Music Network CountryTown Hot 50 airplay chart.
Produced by multi award winning Shane Nicholson, 'Eyes Wide Open' is an upbeat beach-boho, live-and-let-live anthem and a bouncy reflection on the unexpected directions life can take you. "It's a story about being mindful, and allowing ourselves to live fully in the present moment. That is one of the greatest and most magnificent gifts we ever can give to ourselves" Porter says.
Ever the optimist, the overarching message in Porter's writing is one of hope and celebration for the blessings she has found throughout her life, and ones she aims to inspire in her listeners. "No matter what happens along life's journey, I learned that I need to follow my own path and make decisions based on what feels right in that moment," she explains.
Porter has seen her fair share of big audiences and high-profile stages, playing Revelstoke Street Fest in Canada, Bello Winter Music Festival and the Tamworth Country Music Festival. She has also supported Hussy Hicks and Minnie Marks on the Great Southern Nights Tour, Gretta Ziller and Riley Catherall on the Biggest Little Show in Town tour and Kevin Bennett, Jeremy Edwards and Jen Mize at the Dag Sheep Station Songwriters Showcase.
Billie-Jo Porter is taking optimism to the top of the charts with her fresh take on modern songwriting. "I like to live my life with a focus on being happy and having a laugh. My personal mission is to create a positive impact on the world around me through music." With 'Eyes Wide Open' she has achieved her mission. Take a good look, and listen, to Billie-Jo Porter!
