Beth Orton Background
Born in East Dereham, England, Beth Orton grew up appreciating her natural, rural surroundings, even though she relocated to London when she was 14, after her parents separated. Orton was also passionate about reading and loved writing and the theater as well.
Both of Orton's parents had passed away by the time she had turned 19. She traveled to Thailand for a bit to reside in a Buddhist community. It was a time for self-discovery for Orton, in which she learned about the concepts of solitude and independence, which helped her later on in life.
Back in Europe,Orton's first contribution to music commenced when she met William Orbit at a London nightclub. He tried to borrow a cigarette from her, and they developed a relationship shortly after. Orbit invited Orton to do some spoken word for his Strange Cargo project, but she drunkenly decided to sing also. What is perhaps the best-known work from her at the time, Water from a Vine Leaf, was co-written by Orton and released as a limited-edition single.
Orton and Orbit also released a cover version of John Martyn's Don't Wanna Know 'Bout Evil – this was the first song they recorded together. It was originally released in Japan and re-issued in the U.K. in 1997.
Orton's solo album, Superpinkymandy, arrived in 1993 exclusively in Japan, which didn't help Orton rein in international attention.
Trailer Park was Orton's next album, which came out in 1996. The album was well-received, drawing the attention of the British music industry. She claimed both Mercy Prize and Brit Award nominations as a result of this album that showcased her vocals and self-taught guitar work.
Her third album, Central Reservation (1999), contained production work from Ben Watt of Everything But the Girl fame. This album earned her a Brit Award in 2000 as well as another nod for the Mercury Prize.
With the release of the albums Central Reservation and the 2002 U.K. Top 10 album Daybreaker, Orton cultivated a loyal fan base. The Other Side of Daybreak (2003) featured remixes along with remakes and tracks that were never before released.
On her 2006 release, Comfort of Strangers, Orton moved toward a more folk-based sound and away from the electronic sound of past albums.
The following year, singer Annie Lennox collaborated with Beth Orton as well as 22 other female artists to boost awareness of HIV transmissions from mother to child in Africa. Issued on World AIDS Day in 2007, the single, Sing, was the result of the awareness effort.
