How Billie Eilish Creates

“I don’t want to be in the pop world. I don’t want to be in the alternative world, or the hip hop world, or the R&B world or whatever, you know? I want it to be…Billie Eilish kind of music. The other kind.”

Not only has Billie Eilish become one of the most successful musicians on the planet, she’s also one of the most unique and there’s a lot you can learn from how she approaches her art.

I recently came across a couple videos that break down her creative process including one about how she and her brother wrote the song “Bury a Friend” and one where her brother gives a tour of where they make their music.

Both videos are a reminder anything (even a dentist’s office) can inspire art and that constraints breed creativity.
