Billy "Bushwalla" Galewood is an American singer, songwriter and rapper from Cleveland, Ohio.

At the age of nine, Bushwalla entered a youth theater group called "Kids on Broadway". Also while growing up, he ran a magic shop in the Cleveland area.

Billy eventually migrated to New York City, where he studied musical theater at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. There he met Jason Mraz at a party and they subsequently became roommates. After years of honing their own musicianship, the two then moved from New York to Mraz's native Virginia , then California where they performed together as often as they could. Among their collaborations is "Curbside Prophet", a track from Mraz's album Waiting for My Rocket to Come.

In April 2008, Bushwalla was part of the Music, Magic, Make Peace Tour with headliner Jason Mraz, The Makepeace Brothers and magician Justin Willman.

Bushwalla was a special guest on Ryan Swigert's DVD "A Tribute to the Card Tricks of Stewart Judah".
