Billy Vera – Part 2 – A Blue-Eyed Soul Journey – From Capitol to the Walk of Fame, The Grammys, Michael Buble, and Much More

In Part 2 of this NOL Music Series, Billy Vera talks about his journey into acting (hint – Jon Voight!), how a well-known hit television show starring Michael J. Fox called ‘Family Ties’ boosted his career, his days with Capitol Records, getting discovered as a voiceover talent via his pro bono work at KCRW, winning a Grammy, snagging a star on the Walk of Fame, and much more, including his Big Band, his book Vintage Neon, his upcoming autobiography, and his still-in-production documentary starring heavyweights such as Dolly Parton and Dionne Warwick.
