Billy Megofna Jr. is a professional guitarist and singer living in New York City.  Billy's fearless and adaptive approach to music has allowed him to be a successful private guitar instructor as well as a credible live and studio session musician.  Billy has experience in slide, acoustic, electric guitar and lead/background vocals. Aside from understanding the traditional aspects of guitar and vocals, Billy is continually exploring music through the use of a wide variety of effects pedals.  Tone is always paramount but equally important is the need to explore the possibilities of creative and textural sounds. Billy can be both a role playing rhythm guitarist/singer or a stand alone lead guitarist.
