For those of you that have never heard of Beth Orton is a folk singer and was born in Norwich on 14th December 1970.

She hasn't released that many albums and when she was leaving school she didn't even have any idea what she wanted to do so someone suggested that she should sing.

Her third album was Daybreaker and on this album she worked with Ryan Adams and The Chemical Brothers!

her first band was Spill and she was one of a duo - William Orbit being the second. This song that was released was a cover of John Martyn's "Don't Wanna Know About Evil." Orbit and Orton continued to work together in 1993 co-writing and singing the track "Water from a Vine Leaf". She then appeared with Red Snapper on their first singles "Snapper" and "In Deep."

My favourite part of her career was when she worked with folk-jazz legend Terry Callier. Which came just before her album Central Reservation in 1999.

She began as a very shy performer but has bloomed and has such a distinguishing voice - quivering and breaking but pleading for something.
