The Fortunate Incident

Ever since she was a young girl, Eilish had shown interest in the performing arts. She joined the local choir at the age of 8, and later went on to take part in a dance class. Were Eilish’s parents surprised? Not necessarily, given that Eilish’s older brother Finneas was also extremely creative and led a band of his own, which just meant that the family had unexplored talent.

When Eilish was just 13 years old, her dance teacher asked her to work on a song for a dance that needed to be choreographed. Along with her older brother, Billie Eilish was able to write, compose, and record a song called “Ocean Eyes.” She uploaded the song on SoundCloud for her teacher but woke up the next morning to find out that the song had gone viral, gaining her immense popularity worldwide.

From SoundCloud to Grammy Winning Music-Icon

After the release of “Ocean Eyes”, Billie Eilish became the talk of the town, and her fame only increased. She became a household name for teenagers across the globe, and her singles made their way to many music rating sites.

In 2019, Billie rose to fame with her album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? The album and its unbeatable success only brought more record deals and various world tours for her.  Her success can be quantified with the seven Grammys that she has won during her short career.
