Civic Events is thrilled to announce the return of British singer-songwriter Beth Orton. Last on our shores for two sold out performances in 2013, this June will see Beth play three shows across the country in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.

Performing a set that promises to bring life to the classics, Beth will also showcase songs from her latest release ‘Kidsticks’. Released last year, Kidsticks sees Orton exploring and reworking the song writing process. With contributions from Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear), George Lewis Jr (Twin Shadow), Andrew Hung (Fuck Buttons) amongst others, Orton plays almost all of the synth and keyboards on the album with barely an acoustic guitar to be heard.

‘Lean compelling electronic pop…her most invigorating songs in years’ GQ

‘Bubbling percussion, twisted guitar loops and a wall of vocals….she’s never sounded quite so otherworldly’ Q

‘Because Orton’s voice is still classically folk, she sets up a beautiful tension between the old and new in Kidsticks.’ The Listener

Over her superb career, the BRIT award winner has released seven album and captivated audiences worldwide with her sublime song writing and distinctive vocals. She was at the forefront of the “folktronica” scene during the 1990s, with her collaborations with The Chemical Brothers, William Orbit and her critically acclaimed albums Trailer Park and Central Reservation.

Both albums were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and Beth won “Best Female Artist” at the 2000 BRIT Awards. 2002’s Daybreaker was her most commercially successful album, reaching the UK Top 10. Hit songs such as “Stolen Car” “She Cries Your Name”, “Someone’s Daughter” are folk pop classics. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Beth Orton performing live this June.
