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, Billy met the effervescent Martine. They bonded over Mini Rolls and formed the neo-prog band, Qadesh with Martin Hoj.
Feeling a first pull from the West Country; Billy toured with Giffords Circus to wake up the sleepy villages of Gloucestershire.
Billy ran away to collaborate with Dave Sinclair from cult band, Caravan and finish the 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.
