Betty Who - ending 2013 in style!



Bursting onto the scene with her infectious debut single 'Somebody Loves You', Betty Who quickly became one of the most talked about new faces in music. 

Her debut EP, titled 'The Movement' premiered on Billboard in April before it's release later that month. Idolator described the EP as "A spine-tinglingly euphoric 80's pop nugget," indie pop blog All Things Go claimed she was "charting new musical territory," while Popjustice called it "the best proper EP so far of 2013".  

The Movement has attracted over 470,000 streams and 95,000 downloads, while the videos for 'Somebody Loves You' and 'You're In Love' have accumulated almost 700,000 views between them.

Last month 'Somebody Loves You' hit the headlines worldwide when it was featured in a flashmob proposal video which went viral online. Spencer Stout's proposal to his boyfriend Dustin has melted hearts around the world, clocking up over 10 million YouTube views! 

Taking a break from a series of sold-out shows around the US, Betty Who recently made her US TV debut performing 'Somebody Loves You' on VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live.

21 year old Jessica Anne Newham, known as Betty Who trails from Sydney, Australia where she lived until her mid-teens. She moved to the United States in 2007 to attend Interlochen Center for the Arts. Newham began playing cello at the age of four and is self-taught on piano and guitar. She wrote her first songs at age 14, and began performing as a singer-songwriter at age 16. After high school, Newham attended Berklee College of Music in Boston During her first semester, she met producer Peter Thomas who was also attending Berklee. Thomas suggested pairing Newham’s songwriting with a more dreamy, anthemic production style. The two began writing new material together and developed Newham's sound over the next two years.

Now signed to RCA (USA) / Columbia (UK), Betty Who is gearing up for an exciting 2014!
