Multi-award-winning country singer-songwriter and guitarist, Brisbane-based Billie Rose has been creating her own niche country sound with songs that reveal a sincerity and depth well beyond her age, as evident in her latest country pop single, Label Me A Killer.

The inspiration behind Label Me A Killer was drawn from a previous long-term relationship of Billie's. Overcome with emotions and anger, she did as any singer-songwriter would do and wrote about it. In just two hours, with the help of her mum and family friend Peta Richards (musician), the song had been written.

The track was recorded, produced and mixed at Garret Kato's studio at Ocean Shores, just outside of Byron Bay, and was later mastered by Ben Feggans.

Billie says, "I went through so many different emotions during the breakup, I really embraced the anger I had felt when writing this one. I imagine it being one of those songs you hear girls singing along to at the top of their lungs, expressing their own feelings – a song that can easily be related to."

The accompanying music video, which today exclusively premieres on Countrytown, was directed by Tristan Solar-Young and stars actors Caitlin Prichett and Jack Duryea.

Inspired by shows like Hannah Montana, Billie entered her first talent quest at primary school, before taking up singing and guitar lessons. Born and raised Charters Towers, Billie has spent the last 10 years performing at Country Music Festivals all over Queensland as well as the Tamworth Country Music festival. She also attended the Academy of Country Music in 2017. 

In 2021, Billie was nominated for two Queensland Music Awards including in the ‘Blues/Roots Category’ alongside Karl S Williams, LT and Mardi Wilson.

Her debut EP, Company With Regret, flaunts an ever-growing list of awards and accolades including being added to ABC local, ABC Country, a single premiere on Double J's Tower Of Song, a #2 spot on the Airit charts and a video on CMC rotation.
