Darling of the music press whose quiet, slow dreamy songs blend trip-hop breaks with folky guitar and haunting vocals. First noticed by dance music supremo William Orbit when a suitably inebriated Orton sang on his 'Strange Cargo' albums. There is a definite 70s folk influence, (Neil Young, Rickie Lee Jones and Joni Mitchell), which has effortlessly moved to the noughties.
