Beth Orton Artist Snapshot:

In the late 1990s, U.K. songstress Beth Orton broke new ground by combining electronica-derived backing with acoustic folk-rock tendencies that recalled the early-'70s glory days of Sandy Denny and Nick Drake. The fact that she was aided in these efforts by the electronics wizard William Orbit and the seminal jazz-folk singer-songwriter Terry Callier didn't hurt Orton's cause a bit. In 2006, Orton released COMFORT OF STRANGERS, which found her scaling back the techno influence and presenting a more traditional folk sensibility.

Album Description

Debut album from singer/ songwriter whose vocal talents have previously graced tracks for both Chemical Brothers and Red Snapper. Andrew Weatherall remixed many of the 12 tracks on the album, which includes the singles 'She Cries Your Name', 'Touch Me With Your Love' & 'Someone's Daughter'. This Japanese pressing also includes the bonus track, 'It's Not The Spotlight' as well as including a lyric booklet which is exclusive to this pressing.

Product Notes

Beth Orton is the rare vocalist who exists between disparate worlds; she is a singer with a folkie soul who is as comfortable accompanied by an acoustic guitar as by electronic rhythms. Indeed, most people first heard her on William Orbit's Hinterland album and on the Chemical Brothers' Exit Planet Dust. Likewise, her slightly askance vocal style seems to betray naiveté, while lyrically there is a world-weary depth that the latest spate of tough-talking Lolitas cannot muster. Each song's closely observed details create small ripples that grow to substantial emotional waves by album's end; this very promising debut should be the harbinger of great things to come from Orton, with or without the help of a Lilith Fair or anything beyond the integrity of her songs and the wise lilt of her voice. --Alan E.
