Born in Darlington, Co. Durham, Billy Bottle was raised on Moorland walks, summer carnivals and industrial grit.
Formal training in piano and oboe led to busking guitar on the streets and learning the craft of songwriting with indie band, Ethan.
Embarking on musical study in The Big Smoke, he met the effervescent Martine. They bonded over Mini Rolls and formed the neo-prog band, Qadesh with Martin Hoj.
Billy felt his first call from the West Country; touring with Giffords Circus to wake up the sleepy villages of Gloucestershire.
He ran away to collaborate with Dave Sinclair from cult band, Caravan and finish his own solo album, A Message From...
During this time Martine and Billy re-met and followed a call deeper West to Devon.
Here they stumbled on a farm, became Entwined and released the Thoreau-inspired album, Unrecorded Beam.
Somewhere along the way this journey became The Multiple.
