Billy Jack Purnell a.k.a. Plain and Simple is a down to earth kind of guy from Central Missouri. Billy discovered his musical talent when he was recovering from an automobile accident at the age of 16. His downtime was spent in his recliner teaching himself to play and write songs. His most recent album, Bipolar 101 is a collection of songs written about country life sung with passion and accompanied by an acoustic guitar. Songs about fishing, camping, and even one about drunk chicks!
His songs have received some local airplay on Clear 99 and 94.3 KAT Country and in 2013 he was signed by Factory Music Publishing, an international publishing company. Check out Plain and Simple’s website at plainnsimple.net and you can purchase his new CD Bipolar 101 on CD Baby or Amazon.com.

Purnell currently has two self-produced albums, Acousticueticals and Bipolar 101. Releasing future works through Factory Music will open the door for Purnell to pursue greater and more broad-based opportunities in the music industry, according to the musician.
Purnell has already gained recent national attention, when he was featured as an emerging artist on the Crook and Chase radio show this fall. Independent Artist Magazine also featured him in it’s August/September 2013 issue.
Purnell will perform in a KC Cafe House Concert in Marshall, Missouri in July, 2014. More information here.
