Her story is the stuff that film scripts are made of. PJ Harvey meets Scott Walker.

Fiona Sturges, UNCUT

The journey from the dark into the slightly more illuminated can be convoluted and tricky to explain at the best of times, which neatly sums up the winding path that has been Bethia Beadman’s life story.

From the West Country to the East End of London via California, (as both a Sanskrit scholar and a member of grunge outfit ‘Hole’), and a prolonged period of isolation in a lonely English seaside cottage where she composed new music and wrote her first book. Beadman is now ready to be reborn. She has a stack of newly recorded music tracked in Detroit and a near finished manuscript and is fully ready to rumble.

Expect music to drop imminently.

Shines home like a lantern

Rolling Stone

True talent… feral and elemental. A rarity, an original, influenced chiefly by her own psyche.

Chris Roberts, The Quietus

Her music eclipses her backstory. One of the best unsung artists around.

John Kennedy, DAZED

Raw power… Oozes a powerful, spiritual modern blues.

John Robb, Louder than War
