Former Casterton College pupil Bili Jean releases song inspired by lockdown life

A 20-year-old student has released a song inspired by her lifestyle in lockdown.

Bili Jean, who attends the Academy of Contemporary Music in London, returned home to Stamford when lockdown was introduced.

With spare time on her hands she created music which was written, recorded and produced at home.

Bili, a former Casterton College pupil, said: “I’ve enjoyed taking time to make music I hadn’t really thought about making before.

“I’ve really developed as an artist since I’ve been back in Stamford.

“Interestingly I think it’s being close to nature, I’ve been taking lots of walks and taking my notebook and headphones.

“It’s a lot better than being in a city where my only space is a tiny bedroom.”

Bili, whose real name is Annabel Jean Withers, adopted the stage name after being nicknamed Bill by her family.

Her new Indie Pop single, ‘Runnin Round Mars’, was released yesterday (Friday, August 14) and focuses on escapism and daydreaming.

“I’m really excited about it,” she said. “I feel a lot more confident about it now as it’s my own style so I’m not as worried about what people will think about it.”

The track and her recently released EP, ‘How to Do Nothing’, are available on a range of streaming platforms.
