Betsy’s much-anticipated, self-titled debut album is now available. This surrounds her latest single You Won’t Love Me, which has picked up support across Radio 2, 6 Music, and Virgin Radio and has recently seen Betsy make her TV debut.

With her powerhouse vocal range, direct ear for hooks, no-nonsense attitude and unerring ability to locate the sharpest grid references of heartache in music, Betsy is a once-seen, never-forgotten pop proposition. Crossing elements of soul, euphoric dance and soaring, gospel-soaked power ballads, her self-titled debut album is shot through with unflinching lyrical honesty, and draws from an unlikely musical background.

Betsy was born on a goose farm in rural Wales, finding her voice from campfire sing-alongs and the local eisteddfod (where she boldly covered Rage Against The Machine) to the powerhouse vocalists within her parents’ vintage record collection. Keen to pursue a career in music, but knowing nobody in the industry, she was encouraged by her hard-working family to find a fall-back, and moved to London to study fashion design at Central St Martins. One distraction led to another when Betsy was invited to design catwalk for the esteemed Balenciaga in Paris; an intense, exhilarating experience filled with fascinating characters, but one that ultimately ate into her song writing. And so Betsy returned to Wales, swapping what many of her peers deemed the job of a lifetime for making music in a grotty caravan in her brother’s garden.
