Tipped by many in 2009, it has taken nearly four years for a debut album to surface from Newcastle-based Beth Jeans Houghton & The Hooves of Destiny.
Will it be worth the wait? Only time will tell. If it comes close to this wonderful rendition of ‘Sweet Tooth Bird’ for The Lightship Session Series we’ll be doing well. The song and performance are full of warmth and charm with trumpet fanfares and piano elevating Houghton’s somewhat uneasy whispering voice to new levels of greatness.
Beth Jeans Houghton & The Hooves of Destiny will release the debut album, Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose, on February 28th.
