Vocals- Billy Nicholls

Andrew Loog Oldham signed Billy Nicholls to his Immediate label straight from school having been recommended to him by George Harrison. His first single Would You Believe was co-produced by Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane of the Small Faces and Marriott's backing vocals, in particular, are quite to the fore. A follow-up album with the same title was recorded and was due for release in 1968. However, it was never officially released at the time although some copies were available and can now fetch very high sums. However, it was released on CD in 1999.

Nicholls was involved in working with other Immediate artists and Would You Believe was also covered by PP Arnold. During the 1970s, Nicholls worked as a songwriter and backing singer, often accompanying the Who.

In 2001, Billy Nicholls was one of the artists at the Steve Marriott Memorial Concert at London's Astoria Theatre.
