Billy Nomates

Tor Maries, who performs as Billy Nomates, is a solo British songwriter & musician who now lives in Bristol, England.

Maries grew up in Leicester and was a member of a number of bands that failed to be noticed. Following a period of depression, a Sleaford Mods gig inspired Maries to return to making music and she moved to Bournemouth to write and compose.

Her stage name, Billy Nomates, was taken from an insult directed at her when she turned up at the gig on her own.
