Beth Orton

2 Feb 2016

Beth Orton returns to the UK for two shows at Brighton Festival premiering highly anticipated new material exploring her electronic roots. Orton has been one of the country’s most unique and beguiling voices in contemporary music for the past two decades. On her debut LP Trailer Park, Orton pioneered the synthesis of electronic beats and acoustic songwriting. 

She followed with Central Reservation, which brought international acclaim and a BRIT Award. Further albums deepened the breadth of her songwriting, such as the Jim Rourke produced Comfort of Strangers and 2012’s Sugaring Season. Beth recently relocated to California, where she began working on a series of beautiful, career-redefining songs: these one-off shows will be the first time she has performed this new material live.
