I never listen to the radio so maybe I am way behind with this, so she's new to me! I rented this random British movie the other day, and it totally ended up worth making it to the end credits to discover the marvelous Beth Rowley. She's from Bristol and her first album, Little Dreamer, came out in April a year ago. The song I heard her singing in the credits isn't from her album, it was a 40's style Jazz ballad for the movie, and I just loved her voice and looked her up and, er, we'll go with acquired, all of her songs. Feel free to speculate on my methods. I did pay. (There were a couple of songs that I couldn't find and I had to buy them off of iTunes. My conscience is clear ;)
Beth does cool music videos and check out her funky cool hair! Funky. Cool. There is something so devil-may-care about funky people like Beth that I have to admire. (Not like Lady GaGa daring though- she just weirds me out. Did you see that she murders Muppets?! Not cool, GaGa, not cool at all.)
Oh My Life
You Never Called Me Last Night
I am loving all of this bluesy music coming out of the UK these days. Seriously- Beth Rowley, Duffy, Corinne Bailey Rae, Adele, Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse ... how are they producing all of these brilliant, soulful, Blues-singin' Betty's?
