She was born in Los Angeles, in the sunny state of California in the United States of America. Her family consist of many famous people and those who already had a breakthrough, so she could learn from the best at an early age.
She grew up in Highland Park. Her mother is the famous actress and a musician called Maggie Baird and het father is called Patrick O’Connel. Their roots go back to Ireland and Scotland, but Billie is mostly connected to her American-self and thinks of herself that way.
Billie grew up in a household that loves music so she was always listening to it because there were really no way avoiding it.

Her brother was also homeschooled as Billie so they have spent a lot of time together and created an unbreakable bond.
His name is Finneas O’Connel and he, just like Billie and her parents, also loves music and performing very much. He had a band and he was doing great, so Billie thought she could maybe become famous one day too. Little did she know that she really will!
In 2015, she recorded Ocean Eyes, which Finneas had written for his band, but once he finished it, he felt like his sister would be much better at doing that.
Her dance teacher decided to make a dance to this song. In 2016, Billie decided to put Ocean Eyes on SoundCloud and it was her debut single. She didn’t know whether it will be well accepted or not, but she decided to continue on with her work.

After that, she released the song called “Six Feet Under” which became a major hit amongst teens.

Many people are worried about Billie and parents are not sure whether listening to her music is changing their kids behaviour. The thing is, Billie seems to struggle with anxiety and some form of depresison as well and she talks about it on the internet a lot.
She never discloses the feelings truly, but she likes to say how she feels. She doesn’t analyze what is happening to her and it feels like she is trying to romanticize the melancholic feeling in her music as well.
Some people think that she is just trying to portray the Gen Z attitude and that she is trying to become more famous by being relatable to young kids, but many believe she should actually get profesisonal help.
Various times she has said “help me” on camera as a joke, but people are starting to think that she actually needs help and that she is struggling with something bad.
