Watch & Listen
Booze, Lust, Lies & Heartache...A voice for the everyday working man, Cash O'Riley writes and sings songs about Hard Livin', Tough Lovin' and the temptations of Good and Evil. A sound that travels beyond genre, Cash's style of Roots music is a blend of Rock & Roll, Blues, Folk, Punk, Country, Bluegrass and sometimes a little Jazz and Funk. His style is all his own; depending more on the quality of music rather than writing a hit or having the stranger gimmick. Cash O'Riley is a true American Roots Music Outlaw that brings the Redemption of Real Music to every listener.

“(Billy’s) music became more personal, deeper and full of honesty. It developed a serrated edge that tore at the very essences of all that ‘real’ surrounding him, varied in every approach to his music … like a lost document from Gram Parsons, Neil Young or Willie Nelson.” - Shawn Abnoxious, CityBeat
“Dude, you fucking rock.” (Nick Oliveri, from Queens of the Stone Age and Kyuss said that while shaking my hand)
