On The Verge: 20 Artists To Watch In 2016
We list 20 Idolator-approved newcomers to keep an eye on in 2016.

Twenty-four-year-old Betsy has a voice that immediately jumps out at you — an important trait to have in this thing called pop! Sounding somewhat like Texas frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri and Lisa Stansfield (look them up, kiddos), Betsy, who hails from Wales (and grew up on a goose farm, it’s been pointed out to us), has made quite an impression with her absolutely devastating synth-and-strings-filled ballad “Fair.”

“I know it ain’t right, I know it ain’t fair to hold on to love, a love that’s no longer there,” she sings with those golden, emotion-stirring pipes.

“Fair” sounds like a stunning, cinematic track from a bygone era, which is probably why one way we keep thinking of describing it is “‘Nothing Compares 2 U’-esque.” The song is available stateside on iTunes via Columbia.

Listen above, and let’s all hope we hear even more from this talented singer soon.
