BETSY is getting ready to showcase her glossy Pop on her upcoming tour in support of her self titled debut 'BETSY'. Described as having an 'an other-worldly aesthetic, amplified by her ethereal and at times androgynous vocal style', there is no denying that BETSY certainly stands out in the crowd as an artist that is worthy of your attention. Having already briefly featuring her 2017 performance at Focus Wales on the site we are looking forward to see her again in Manchester at the end of this month for a full performance.

“My parent’s record collection was pretty varied so I’ve been inspired by lots of different things from Classical to Jazz, Soul, Rock and Pop. I love Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Annie Lennox – big soul voices who sing like they mean it. My writing is personal and it’s important there’s a depth and a melancholic feel to it. I love those big Nineties dance tracks like Massive Attack’s 'Unfinished Sympathy' where the vocal is uplifting but the song itself is sad. Most of my songs are not particularly positive even if they sound it!”
These influences shine throughout her debut release which is already receiving great reviews from fellow publications. So when it is all said and done you need to make sure to head on down to one of her shows this November and take notice of one of the UK's best up and coming artists. The full dates are available below.
