The power of music, melodically and poetically, has guided me. It has pulled me through life’s obstacles. At times, its been a lonely road, but a beautiful road of dreams and possibilities. Music saved my life. I hope you enjoy this 40-year journey on

My Runway of Hope.

William BillyKent Baldenweg

“BillyKent… a songwriter with the unique ability to expose the rawest nerve and essence of life’s ups and downs and turn it into a great musical landscape. When I need a lyric, I call on BillyKent.”

– Greg Adams – East Bay Soul – Formerly of Tower of Power


First Single

Simply Love

“Billy’s music reflects his love for Los Angeles, the city he was born and raised. His solid lyrics and warm melodies create the perfect backdrop for a drive up the coast to Big Sur or a soothing bubble bath.”

The Book

“Somebody once said, “Music is what feelings sound like.” It follows, then, that BillyKent must have feelings like Picasso had paint, for he has created some of the most memorable music of our generation. His melodies in songs like “Beautiful One,” “Shallow End of Your Soul,” “Genevieve,” “In a Drop of You,” and so many more, touch your soul and likely find a permanent home there. ..”

-Billy Riback, TV Writer/Producer
