“American Youxia” (pronounced Yoo-sha) is Billie Stevens’ first solo record and it is a Rock Record…
Honest, guitar-driven rock with a great energy spanning a range of moods. Punchy riffs underscore the creative lyrics sprinkled throughout the entire album that travels from punk to rock anthem to acoustic, all in support of an underlying story that gels the entire album together.
Billie’s lyrics are clever and original, and his vocals range from punk rage, to heartfelt longing, to contemplative wonder without being screamo or whiny. His guitars are a face-melting flamethrower or an angelic melody, depending on his mood, and there is no denying his expertise in his craft.
With themes and vocal styles that are similar throughout, each song has a different nature. It’s not 9 songs of the same stuff like other albums. Each song has a distinct character and mood that contributes to the work as a whole. Listen to the album in track order to get that full story, and then play your favorites a gazillion times in a row because some of them will make you do that.

Great stuff. No 2 songs sound the same, each has its own style.

Billie Stevens recently created an awesome album. He is a great vocalist and a very accomplished musician. His lyrics relate to life, moving from a self-centered lament of a junkie when his girlfriend dies of a drug overdose (“What About Me”) to a wild and crazy love affair in “Back to the Grind.” Billie makes good use of riffs and both vocal and guitar hooks to bring the album to life. He has proven himself to be a truly versatile performer and a very creative artist. “American Youxia” in a very enjoyable album.

I have followed Billie Stevens music since at least 2000. This album American Youxia is bby far his absolute best work that I have heard. I truly believe this course of running as a solo artist is going to be what helps him break the mold this time. Do yourself a big big favor and get a copy of this album. You will not leave with buyers remorse, instead you will be hitting the repeat button over and over again.
