Billy, one of the founder members of the acclaimed Welsh rockers, left in 2014, shortly before the band released their top-10 debut album.
A year later he started his own band, Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles, and has been steadily performing, recording and building the fanbase ever since.
While Billy is proud to have been part of Catfish and their platinum-selling debut album The Balcony, his music is taking on a different direction as he fronts a project showcasing his own songwriting.
“Leaving Catfish was just one of those things,” he says.
“I am very proud of what I achieved in Catfish, I look back on it with fond memories, but I’m just focused on the future now.
“I just want it to be as big as possible – I’m not afraid of success and everything that comes with it.”
A spokesman said: “Billy’s expressive voice surprises and delights the listener with its flawless, timeless, and effortless qualities.”
Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles play The Leopard, West Street, Doncaster, tomorrow, Friday, November 24.
Tickets are £10 on the door, or £8 in advance from www.leopard-doncaster.co.uk
