Win Beth Orton Tickets

Published on February 8th 2006.

Beth Orton visits Manchester this month as part of her first UK tour since 2004, and we have a pair of tickets to give away to one Manchester Confidential reader.

Beth’s tour coincides with the release of her fourth album, ‘Comfort in Strangers’, which comes ten years after she first made her name as a prolific singer and songwriter in 1996. Since then, Beth has built for herself a worldwide reputation and enjoyed international success with her first three albums, and now ‘Comfort in Strangers’ reflects a real sense of reinvention, while allowing her emotional complexity and talent as a songwriter to flourish.

Norfolk born Beth moved to London at the age of 14 with her mother, where she spent her late teens absorbed in a plethora of music, from Joni Mitchell to the Beastie Boys. Despite her passion for music however, Beth’s career aspirations began to take her towards an actor’s life – before a chance meeting with William Orbit turned her focus firmly back towards music.

Following a few collaborations in which Beth lent her rich vocals to works from the likes of William Orbit and the Chemical Brothers, 1996 saw her release her first solo album, ‘Trailer Park’, released in 1996. The rest, as they say, is history. Beth soared to international acclaim and has attracted a huge following on both sides of the Atlantic with her beautiful and poignant lyrics and powerful live performances.
