Beth Orton - Brings her 'Folkronica' sound to Toronto


Beth Orton - The acclaimed British songwriter known for her 'Folkronica' sound, a refreshing twist with folk & electronica elements. Orton’s first solo album, Trailer Park, was released in 1996 and earned her two Brit nominations for best British newcomer and best British female.

Working with artists such as Chemical Brothers, Williams Orbit, Terry Callier, Red Snapper and Ben Harper. Orton's un-mistakable sound, a husky undertone with a silky quality has to be heard live to appreciate.

It's been over six years since Orton released a album. In that time she became a mother of two, left her record label, turned 40, contemplated writing a novel, got married and doubted she would ever record another album. But in the end, the lure of the guitar brings her back with her latest album, Sugaring Season. 

Orton, while fighting off a cold didn't hold back last night with his mostly acoustic set at the intimate crowd that filled the Mod Club in Toronto.
