Sunday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:

Special Guest Billy Otto

Billy Otto is a Byron Bay based singer-songwriter, record producer, mental health advocate, surfer and environmental activist. With his confessional lyrics, sun-drenched vocals and earnest desire to inspire his audiences, it doesn’t take long to feel enamored with the exquisite, ethereal sound he’s crafted over the past seven years. His sound lands somewhere between Radiohead and Tame Impala, and has played support shows for the likes of Yumi Zouma and Kyle Lionhart.

Having journeyed the globe writing, performing and speaking across over 50 countries, Billy feels that creating music and community is his pen-ultimate mode of joy and nourishment. Having played to thousands of fans across Brazil, Japan, Sweden, North America and Australia, his eclectic infusion of dream pop, psychedelic and folk have been known to bring his audiences into a trance and to facilitate an even deeper sense of unity and connectedness.

Otto is no stranger to indie music blogs and streaming platforms having racked up a plethora of playlists over his short career. His last release “Let Me Loose” saw him sell out shows in Sydney, Newcastle and Byron Bay right at the end of 2020.

Billy has been privileged to collaborate with members from iconic Australian bands such as The Temper Trap, Gang of Youths, Sticky Fingers and The Beautiful Girls. His song “Dreams” landed 55 on the iTunes indie charts has clocked up half a million streams on Spotify. His heart for the environment is strong, and his music and activist voice has been used for environmental campaigns in collaboration with the Surfrider Foundation. Recently his song“Can’t Take The Ocean Out Of Me” was harnessed for a monumental nationwide paddle-out campaign to protect theSouth Australian coastline from irresponsible oil drilling. The song was picked up by Patagonia for their latest activist documentary and played live to over 10,000 people in 2019 alone.
