Beth Orton Signs with BMG Chrysalis
Beth Orton has signed a worldwide, exclusive co-publishing deal with BMG Chrysalis US which now represents her entire 20 year catalog of songs. The Brit Award-winning singer-songwriter is known for her introspective lyrics and unique pairing of folk and electronica.
The British artist first emerged on the music scene in the mid-'90s after a series of collaborations with William Orbit and the Chemical Brothers. Orton won a devoted following with the albums Trailer Park, which featured the single 'She Cries Your Name,' in 1996, and 1999's Central Reservation, which led to a Brit Award for Best Female Artist. The well-received 2012 release Sugaring Season was her first album in six years. Orton's work has continued to reach new audiences with high-profile syncs on shows such as Grey's Anatomy.
Michele Fleischli, Orton's manager, commented: "It's exciting to work with a team that is dedicated to the art of collaborating and making music, which Beth finds inspiring."
BMG Chrysalis svp creative Kate Hyman added: "Beth has a gift for blending distinct sounds and writing lyrics that are emotionally raw. It is an honor for BMG to be able to work with her catalog and help propel her career forward."
