Little Rock, AR [April 23, 2021] Third generation Arkansan and singer/songwriter Billy Jeters’ newest album Shine Eye Landing rises to another level, further enhancing his already successful musical career. The ten-song full-length album expands on his past work merits but does not move away from what has made him successful so far. Maintaining such balance while developing his art is one of Shine Eye Landing’s finest off-the-radar achievements.
Several other strengths are distinguishing his new release from the run-of-the-mill efforts of others; Jeter may utilize time-tested musical vehicles, but the playing is top shelf and stamped with stylishness all his own.
Jeter has deep roots in the Arkansas Delta with other family dwellings in the Ozark Mountains. The combination of ancestry adds to the creative mix of genres displayed on this stellar new album.
There’s some tasty banjo playing throughout That’s Just the Way We Roll, particularly during its second half, and the upbeat jauntiness contrasts nicely with the comparatively placid presentations of the album’s opening duo. With some bluegrass, folk, and blues, all combined in Jeter’s very own sui generis Americana style, the album is a plethora of delightful Arkansas Delta-style music.
“Shine Eye Landing has a restrained musical character; it has the same reflective, internalized spirit audible during the album’s first cut. The female backing vocals supporting Jeter offer an excellent counterpoint to Jeter’s voice.”

After almost a year off, Billy and his band have started rehearsing for the upcoming Summer and Fall shows. The new album “Shineye Landing” is earmarked to drop on April 23.
