Beatrice Betley’s new album Upside Down ventures into the realms of the fantastical and the different. It is an album that shows off Betley’s skills as a performer and a songwriter.
Songs such as opener “Flow,” and “Mr Maran,” demonstrate Betley’s potential and show that she is not to be trifled with when it comes to the subtle grooves and variations that make Jazz such a great genre.
Songs like “Lullaby,” and “Sunshine,” let the listener delve into a softer side of Betley, whilst also allowing them to truly appreciate her skill and passion.
The finale that sees “Egotripper,” slide effortlessly into “Gone,” is simply fantastic.
This is an album that all jazz and music lovers should get when it is released.
