Billy Harvey was born in Evanston, Illinois. He has one younger sister. They were both raised by their mom (who bought him his first guitar when he was twelve). They moved around a lot when he was growing up.

In fact, in one six-year span, he thinks they moved thirteen times, living in various cities like Santa Fe, Boston and Seattle. Eventually they ended up in Chicago where their mom found a job that she liked. Both his sister and he went to high school there. At seventeen, the summer of his graduation, Harvey moved to California in a VW van that his mom sold to him for a dollar.

He headed for San Francisco even though he didn't know anyone there. He figured when he got there he'd just sleep in his van for a while till he got a band started or something. He did finally join a band, Flame, that became very popular in that area and he did finally move out of his van (although six months later). They were together for six years and put out two records. ...show less
