Beth Jeans Houghton

Monday, 9 November 2009

While flipping through one of the UK's random free music 'zines, a photo of this girl caught my eye. Her look had the rock'n'roll excess of Nancy Spungen, the vintage glamour of Twiggy and the modern-day aloofness of Peaches Geldof - all at the same time. Such a interesting combination of images, I couldn't help but rush to my laptop to check out her music. It was nothing like I expected.....with vocals reminiscent of Bat for Lashes, and music that ranged from old American folk to church organs like you'd hear during a Sunday service. Beth Jeans Houghton is a rare artist, drawing in ideas from all over the place (she lists her influences from Bob Dylan to Frank Zappa to Ani DiFranco to M.I.A.). She's a unique breed that I hope stays around for a long time.....

Check out her video for "I Will Return":
