Welsh singer/songwriter Betsy is equal parts fashionista, soaring vocalist, and down-to-earth personality.
Born on a goose farm in Pembrokeshire, South Wales, Betsy grew up wanting a career in music; however, her mother persuaded her that she would need a backup plan. In response, Betsy moved to London to study fashion, although she continued performing at open-mike nights around the city. As her studies progressed, she gained an internship with Balenciaga, a luxury fashion house in Paris. She flew back to London every weekend to perform, and eventually caught the attention of Joe Goddard
, who worked with her to release a single, "Endless Love." Spurred by the success of the single, Betsy left her Paris fashion career, instead moving back to a caravan in Wales to write music. After unsuccessfully sending demos to record labels, she was approached by an acquaintance who worked in music, who asked her to feature on someone else's track. During the recording process she met two managers who were working for Warner Bros.
Impressed with everything they had heard, they gave her an advance, which she used to go back to the caravan and write songs for her eponymous debut album, released in 2017. ~ Liam Martin, Rovi
