Twilight’s Billy Burke debuts music video

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: The Twilight Saga actor brood might well be the most musically talented bunch of any cast of a non-musical production. Recently, yet another Twilight star has stepped up his musical game—this time it’s Billy Burke.

Via his newly-launched web site (http://www.billyburke.net/), Billy Burke released the video for his single “Removed”. Fans subscribing to his site awoke to find links to the music video in their inbox, as well as an announcement for a giveaway to the premiere of Eclipse. Yet, all fans may access the video—and the contest—by heading to the web site itself.

In contrast with the character he plays in the Twilight Saga (Bella’s middle-aged loner of a father, Charlie Swan) Billy Burke exudes a much younger, much cooler persona in real life. In his video, web site gallery, and red carpet shots, Burke appears sans moustache, flannel shirts, and $10 hair cut. Real life is more likely to find him in distressed jeans or styled pants, revealing shirts, a soul patch and two-day stubble. This grittier image gels with the sound of his music, and the design of his music video.

Joining Burke in the arena of musical talent are Twilight co-stars Robert Pattinson and Jackson Rathbone. Pattinson plays the piano, the guitar, and has recorded as a vocalist (including two tracks on the Twilight soundtrack). Rathbone plays guitar and sings (among other things) with his up-and-coming band 100 Monkeys.
