For all the bittersweet twang and folksy melodies on singer/songwriter Keith Betti's latest album, Company Loves Misery, the ghost of George Harrison haunts the premises like no other. Harrison isn't named-checked on Betti's biography and nor is he mentioned on his store page. Nevertheless, the soaring melodies of 'Found a Love' and the sunny warmth of 'It's a Long Way Down' are marked with Harrison's fingerprints. Being compared to one of the Beatles is certainly high praise, but Betti deserves it.
'The Chicago-based artist has produced one of the year's most impressive records, a heartfelt collection of sharply written Americana.' Stacey Zering - No Depression
