As the daughter of Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy, fiddler/singer Eliza Carthy was raised in the bosom of British folk, and followed its path until 2000's ANGELS & CIGARETTES, a one-album dalliance with the world of major labels and mainstream pop/rock. While Carthy's voice and melodic sensibility remain rooted in folk here, the arrangements venture into everything from trip-hop beats to bouncy electronic pop. It didn't last long, as she returned quickly to a more traditional folk style for her next few albums.
