True talent.. feral and elemental
Chris Roberts, The Quietus
Bethia has sung in a choir at the Vatican, supported Pete Doherty, played Glastonbury and the Isle of Wight and lived in Hollywood with Courtney Love while playing piano in Hole. She’s been with her band to Albania for a festival at the foot of Mount Tomorr, not to mention a six month stint in medieval folk band Circulus, which took her on a waterfall tour of Cornwall.
In 2014 her Union Chapel show was voted 2nd Favourite Gig of the year out of 220 concerts, pipped to the post by Ray Davies – watch live highlights here. This year has seen the release of a short 16mm film of her Southern Gothic tale ‘Georgia’ with backing vocals from REM’s Mike Mills.
Bethia read Theology and Sanskrit at Cambridge and lives in Homerton, London, in a roadside bedroom with a copper bath. Albums available here on limited edition vinyl and CD.
