Beth Orton

Singer/songwriter Beth Orton combined the passionate beauty of the acoustic folk tradition with the electronic beats of trip-hop to create a fresh, distinct fusion of roots and rhythm. Born in Norwich, England in December 1970, Orton debuted as one half of the duo Spill, a one-off project with William Orbit which released a cover of John Martyn's "Don't Wanna Know About Evil." She continued working with Orbit on his 1993 LP Strange Cargo 3, co-writing and singing the track "Water From a Vine Leaf" before appearing with the group Red Snapper on their first singles "Snapper" and "In Deep." In 1995 Orton teamed with the Chemical Brothers for "Alive: Alone," the ultimate track on their Exit Planet Dust LP. After assembling a backing band comprised of double bassist Ali Friend, guitarist Ted Barnes, keyboardist Lee Spencer, and drummer Wildcat Will, she finally issued her 1996 debut EP She Cries Your Name; her stunning full-length bow Trailer Park, produced in part by Andrew Weatherall, followed later in the year. In 1997, Orton released the superb Best Bit EP, a move towards a more organic, soulful sound highlighted by a pair of duets with folk-jazz legend Terry Callier; the full-length Central Reservation followed in 1999. "Stolen Car" was a moderate hit among college radio and tours across the U.S. were also successful. Three years later, Orton emerged refreshed with her third album Daybreaker. This time around, she collaborated with ex-Whiskeytown frontman Ryan Adams and the Chemical Brothers. In early 2006, Orton released her fourth album, Comfort of Strangers. The 14-song set was recorded in two weeks with producer Jim O'Rourke. After a recording break of six long years, Orton signed to Anti and released the Tucker Martine-produced Sugaring Season in the early fall of 2012. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

great music - just puts me in the mood
One of the sexiest voices in the entire biz you guys.
She's so cute. I'd like to put her in a room with Cranberrie's Delores and see what could happen.
I love your music, your story and style. Will you marry me, Beth?

its not the spotlight is so good love the words and the way her voice breaks at the right time
so blessed. so real.
Concrete Sky is sooo good. Thanks Beth!
I love he song "Starts all seem to weep" thats such a beautiful song, specially if it's one of Steve ross playlist. It's wonderful and powerfull.
Man if I had a penny for everytime I played Beth's version of Ooh Child and rocked my little girls to sleep when they were sick I would be a gazillionair e ! ! Well maybe not that rich, but I'd have a heck of alot of pennies!! I love "It's Not The Spotlight" too!

Lily Allen? Really? Maybe I'm listening to the wrong songs, but I like Lily a lot but don't see much connection to Beth Orton. Maybe I'm wrong though.
cool stuff. now i know where lilly allen & kate nash got their inspiration!
I also love the song she did with Everything But the Girl "The stars all Seem to Weep". She's got a real distinct voice
I love her! And I love the fact that she is not that popular. She is still kind of underground.
claudiaoterr y
her cover of ooh child is unbelievable . . .
"Worms" is an incredible song.
"Comfort of Strangers" is the greatest singer/songw r i t e r album ever. Everyone put down your guitars and just quit--Beth Orton has created the ultimate. It is the masterpiece that all others should be judged by, and the fact that it was recorded in two weeks with so little digital tweaking, overdubbing and the usual studio embellishmen t s is further proof that she is a true artists. Listen to her live radio performances on sites like AOL and she is as perfect as the album is itself.
As a musici
These appear to be the final days of the Empire, but I've no worries mates, I've got most of Beth's best work here on CD, all ready to cue-up at the final hour... (You're definitely in my top 5 artists girl!!)
I will echo what others have said by saying that I absolutely love her. I bought myself a ticket to one of her shows for my birthday a couple years back, and it was by far the best gift I got that year. Even marred by illness, she fought through her set and still blew me away. She's a beautiful person inside and out and can't say enough good things about her and her music.
great music- awesome live
this is awesome, I really like this!
i like her music....its chill
Love her.
