Betty Who was born in Sydney and raised as a classical cellist, until moving to the US in her adolescence to study music. She quickly became a passionate songwriter, lyricist, and pop artist who signed to RCA/Sony records after the independent release of her debut EP “The Movement”.
Next she hit #1 on the iTunes Pop Charts with her followup EP “Slow Dancing” followed by her debut album “Take Me When You Go” being released to countless praise from fans and critics alike. Both releases have accompanied sold out North American headline tours, in addition to recent tours across Australia with Katy Perry and Kylie Minogue, as well as being crowned Best Female Pop Artist at the MTV Logo NewNowNext Awards.
Her most recent single, “I Love You Always Forever” is a hit song across Australia, reaching #1 on the iTunes Pop chart and Top 10 status on the official ARIA charts. Betty currently resides in Los Angeles, and is currently working on her second album.
