New Music: Betsy - Lost & Found (Video)


You may well have already heard Lost and Found by big voiced Welsh pop singer Betsy – it was featured top on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist last week (which let's face it probably does a better job than any blog could do of delivering you all the latest new pop tunes in a day - especially if you don't want any commentary like this). 

Since that time I’ve seen lots of people (ok an exaggeration – to be honest its 3) saying that the song sounds a lot like Cher or makes them think of Cher. For me it makes me think of Heather Small from M People or Shara Nelson when she was singing with Massive Attack. However, even if it pops images of Joss Stone, Nik Kershaw, Elvis Presley or your granny into your brain, hopefully it will also make you think of words like superb or exquisite as well. If your brain is thinking sausages and chips, then your mind's not really on it and it's time to go and get your lunch / dinner.

In a relatively weak year for brand new artists Betsy is sitting somewhere near the top of the ladder right now. It’s why I’m featuring her for the third time this year on Breaking More Waves.

Footnote: When I first heard this song on Friday I searched on Google for Betsy and Lost & Found. At that point all I really learnt was that there were quite a few pets called Betsy and a fair few of them had been lost. Hopefully that's all changed now - both that the pets have been found and that the singer's song will be getting plenty of posts.

I absolutely love this song and Spotify is excellent cos I can play it over and over. Dead chuffed she is Welsh - homegrown. Loved your article, tho I was positive this was Annie Lennox when I heard it's first radio airing. Defo agree with it also resonant of Cher and Heather Small. All amazing voices. Fingers crossed Betsy is recognised up there with them in years to come.
