Billie Eilish is primed to make a splash in pop music, and she can thank her musical family for helping reveal her passion at a young age.

Eilish began performing when she joined the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus at 8 years old, and her trajectory got even more impressive in the following formative years: She began writings songs at 11, and by 14 was signed with Interscope records.

Now 16, the singer-songwriter has been compared to Lorde for her dark style, deep lyrics, and prodigious talent, but she also stands out on her own: Since releasing her debut single “Ocean Eyes” in 2015, she’s been featured on the 13 Reasons Why soundtrack, collaborated with Vince Staples, and garnered nearly 10 million views for her music video “Bellyache.”

Fans will be able to see Eilish in concert during her nine-date, sold-out European tour in February. In the spring, Eilish will embark on a nearly-sold out North American tour. Visit her website for ticketing information.

Learn more about Eilish in the new installment of The Upbeat, a new video series presented by Citi, above.
