BETSY is a singer/songwriter who grew up on a goose farm in Wales. She’s been obsessed with music for as long as she can remember. One of her earliest memories is being sat in a field mesmerised by her uncle and father playing their guitars and singing Blowin’ in the Wind. She knew she wanted to be a musician but didn’t know anyone in the industry, so she moved to London to study fashion design at Central St Martins and ended up at Balenciaga in Paris. Not pursuing her dream ate away at her, so she quit and headed to an old caravan in her brother’s garden, determined to give music a stab and write her way out by making demos on Garageband. Her chance came when Joe Goddard, reworked an early demo of hers to create “Endless Love”. After this she was offered two record deals, signing to Columbia in the US and Warner Brothers in the UK and beginning work on her debut album.
Waiting is her latest single from her full length debut album expected to be launched sometime this year via Warner Music Group. The video is directed by Ben Charles Edwards and the direction of photography is by John Bretherton.
