B rand new Irish band Billow Wood (formerly known as Flat Out) are a male/female four-piece who fuse their unique brand of instrumentation with multi-vocals and harmonies. Billow Wood are influenced by Irish traditional music and folk music and are now moving in a new direction often accompanied by a bass and drums. They are creating their own unique sound! A blend of irish music and folk music.

Originally, we would have sung a modern song and done a trad twist on it. Whereas now, we’re writing our own music and developing our sound an awful lot more.
