About Botany Bay...

Emotional and intensive pop songs, influenced by Pink Floyd and Coldplay up to Massive Attack… sometimes richly instrumented, then again reduced to the essential; sometimes electric and next time a little more acoustic...

Botany Bay are full of musical surprises. Impulsive, dynamic, not really tangible but at the same time present. With the accomplished use of musical instruments, sophisticated arrangements and breathtaking beautiful vocals and melodies, Botany Bay are touching the souls of their constantly growing fan base, on record as well as live on stage.


After one album and one EP, Botany Bay have become a constant part of the free music scene and are offering their music free of charge under a Creative Commons license on the internet... with more than ten thousands of downloads and podcast hits like “Voices”, “Feel” and “The Crow Song”.
