A whimsical singer-songwriter from Norfolk who came to the British public's attention in 2000 after winning the BRIT Award for Best British Female and being shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize. Orton is also popular across the pond - her music has been featured on shows such as Grey's Anatomy, Charmed and Dawson's Creek. Recently moving away from the folktronica sound she helped make popular in her early career, these days Orton is more comfortable with straight folk - something she demonstrated on her last album, 2006's Comfort of Strangers.
