BETTY at the City Winery, December 2014 BETTY: 'Their musical prowess is evinced in their songwriting ability and voices that fit together like a dovetail joint. In the flash of a semi-quaver they can be reminiscent of R.E.M. or Ladysmith Black Mambazo, yet they are completely their own entity' New York Post

Find out about BETTY's latest release: Filthy Lucre

'A request by the artist, Darren Waterston, that the band make acoustic fragments for his installation now showing at the Smithsonian institution in Washington DC, provoked much music. Through a couple of twists and turns, we came up with something unanticipated and unlike anything BETTY had done before.' Read Thorne's comments on the recording and production of BETTY's Filthy Lucre Soundscape.

Bright & Dark

'A shining star in an age when music has become almost disposable.' (Amazon review)

'Lots has happened to the girls since their last record and their experiences have inspired them to write songs that are deep, funny, melancholic, hopeful and you'll find it hard to take this CD off repeat.

BETTY - Bright & Dark albumWith a cinematic theme, BETTY take us on a journey from the romantic and spiritual, to the sexy and evil. From the very beginning you'll be dancing to My Baby and finish on top with King Kong and Kate Pierson (from the B52's) will blow you away with her operatic voice.'
