Armed with a single microphone, Pro Tools, and a vocal booth fashioned from sleeping bags and an upturned couch, London born, Oxford based alt-folk artist Bethany Weimers spent nine months as a bit of a hermit, performing, recording and producing her atmospheric debut album Harpsichord Row which she released to widespread praise in 2012. Since the album’s release and with a reputation as a stunning live performer preceding her, Bethany has been steadily gathering loyal fans from across the globe through successful tours both home and abroad, and airplay that includes 6 Music & BBC Introducing.
With her hauntingly powerful voice accompanied by only her acoustic guitar or piano, Bethany currently performs a mesmerising solo set when live. Influences include The Civil Wars and PJ Harvey, and fans have likened Bethany to artists such as Amanda Palmer, Marissa Nadler and the iconic Joan Baez. Her show at Hot Numbers Coffee will excitingly be her first in Cambridge.
