Unlike most of the high leveled artists who prefer lofty studios, Billie works with her brother Finneas O'Connell from a small bedroom studio in their parents' home. That's right Billie Eilish won five Grammy's working out of her bedroom. Billie's brother Finneas told NME,
We don't want to be bound to a studio to who we'd have to pay untold sums.
The 22 years old producer for his sister also stated that he prefers that space for creating work because it offers natural light.

Not just opening up where the brother-sister duo operates out of, O'Connell also gave a detailed rundown of some of the equipment in their bedroom studio in a different interview.
The set up includes:
- Yamaha HS5 Nearfield Monitors — $200
- Yamaha H8S Subwoofer — $450
- Universal Audio Apollo 8 — $1,000-$2,000 (depending on if used or new)
- Apple Logic Pro X — $199
- Audio Technica AT2020 Mic — $99
All in all, only a couple of bucks shy from $3000. That only goes on to prove if you got what it takes, the price of the instruments you used won't be a problem at all. Maybe the bedroom setup is what gives Billie's haunting voice that intimate feel, which everybody fell in love with.

This is for all the kids who make music in their bedrooms.
The 18 years old singer and her sibling's wins only prove that the barrier for entry into the world of music is much lower than in the past, and you most definitely don't require the professional studio to create hit music. They sure are an inspiration to everyone all around.
