Episode 163 - Billy Sullivan - Singer, Songwriter & Musician talks Paper Dreams Solo Debut, The Spitfires supporting Paul Weller, a love of The Jam and more.


My special guest on this episode of Desperately Seeking Paul - The Paul Weller Fan Podcast is the hugely talented singer, songwriter and musician - Billy Sullivan.

His story takes us from a love of music as a child through to the formation of The Spitfires in 2012 and building a cult fan base on their own terms through hundreds of highly energetic and powerful live performances and 5 brilliant studio albums.

It’s no surprise that the band came to the attention of Paul Weller and The Specials who both personally invited the band along for support slots.


The four-piece from Watford carved out a niche for themselves, blending elements of punk, ska, and rock to create their unique sound.

A Young Mod with a Passion for Music

Billy Sullivan's journey in music began at a really young age. Growing up in a music-loving household, he was introduced to the sounds of The Beatles, The Who, Small Faces, and, of course, Paul Weller and The Jam. The band, and particularly the songwriting of Paul Weller, left an indelible mark on Billy's musical sensibilities.

It was the band's music that first sparked Billy's interest in playing the guitar.

Paul’s sharp lyrics and distinctive guitar work resonated with him deeply, and he set out to learn how to play those iconic riffs.

Supporting on Live Dates: The Spitfires and Paul Weller

One of the most remarkable chapters in Billy Sullivan's music career came when The Spitfires were invited to support Paul Weller on tour. The invitation to share the stage with a musical hero was a testament to The Spitfires' rising profile and their authentic sound, image and outlook.

Billy has spoken fondly of Paul Weller's influence on his songwriting, citing his ability to craft insightful, socially conscious lyrics as a driving force behind his own work.

Billy called time on The Spitfires in December 2021, going on to release an outstanding solo debut album Paper Dreams in March 2023. Recorded over just three days in Coastal Sound recording studios in Liverpool, the album was produced by one-time Weller collaborator Simon Dine.
