2019 has been a busy year for Beth Malcolm; performing at the Orkney Folk Festival; winning Edinburgh folk club’s 44th songwriting competition; and launching ‘Choose My Company’ EP on her first solo tour. The 21-year-old singer/songwriter has recently moved to Edinburgh after graduating from University in Glasgow – the city which became her lyrical muse.
Beth met Fat-Suit guitarist Dorian Cloudsley while they were both performing at the Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections in 2017, and they have been writing and performing captivating sets together ever since.
Beth’s folk-influenced music is stripped back and acoustic. Think of a young Joni Mitchell meeting Norah Jones on the streets of a Scottish city.
“She provides proof that there is still life in the concept of a musician writing words and music designed to go from ears to heart in one smooth move.” Bluesbunny
“Beth Malcolm’s songs are not only beautiful, they also remind the listener to take more care of their surroundings, that the source of inspiration is not only caught in the lure of someone’s face, but in the immediacy of the place it happened in.” Liverpool Sound and Vision
