Intention Unlocks Reinvention

For twenty years, Billy McLaughlin astounded audiences around the world with his complex and rhythmic music.

At the height of his international recording and touring career, Billy was diagnosed with Focal Dystonia, a mysterious and yet-to-be-cured neuromuscular disorder that rendered him unable to play his own music.

Despite every effort to combat his condition, soon Billy’s career was over.

But the long deafening silence was broken when Billy began a historic comeback. He was doing the unthinkable – relearning his songs one note at a time with his opposite hand…

Billy McLaughlin is astounding audiences once again with both his story and his music.
