Recorded in Portland, Oregon, with producer Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists), 'Sugaring Season' bears the fruits of a period of introspection & renewal: deeply lyrical songwriting, a newfound expressivity of voice, and more than ever before, a daring synthesis of her broad musical influences into a powerfully individual artistic vision.
"I stretched myself as a singer on this record and used voices I never have before as a writer," she explains. "A lot of the writing on this record happened in the dead of night, when spiders mend their webs, with an infant asleep in the next room... as a result, my writing became a secret again: illicit and my own."
Beth Orton is a BRIT Award-winner and two-time Mercury Prize nominee who has collaborated with Bert Jansch, Emmylou Harris, Beck, Jim O'Rourke, Terry Callier and Ryan Adams among others.
