UK BUZZ ARTIST RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM
With her honeyed vocals and whimsical sensibility, the Newcastle-born
21-year old Beth Jeans Houghton and her band The Hooves of Destiny
quickly became ''Ones to Watch'' in their native UK, particularly after a
fabled stage appearance with Devendra Banhart, support slots for Bon
Iver and an EP released in 2009.
Dubbed as ''a legend in the making'' by NME and hailed as ''the new
Jean Genie'' by The Independent (UK) , Beth + the Hooves are often
described as sparkly acid/psych-folk. Beth's also become known for
eccentric stage costumes, flamboyant wigs, striking photographs and
an ever-changing appearance.
Compared to Florence, Natasha Khan, Laura Marling and Vashti Bunyan,
Beth is actually uncomparably unique and stands to make a huge
impression on the musical landscape with her debut album in 2012.
