Betty Who
Betty Who
Betty Who blends indie and pop music into an irresistible mix of bold soundscapes, Top 40 hooks, and knowing lyrics. Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, she played cello by age four and began writing her first pop songs in her early teens. Her voice is striking and memorable, and, according to Billboard, "shimmers with a self-assuredness extremely uncommon in an unsigned artist."

Her recent debut EP "The Movement" was welcomed with rave reviews, including being crowned "Best EP of 2013" by both Billboard Magazine and Popjustice, being called "This Year's Major One To Watch" by MTV Buzzworthy, and being called "The Artist Who Will Save Pop Music" by Idolator, with The Guardian, Digital Spy, Arjan Writes, Kick Kick Snare, All Things Go, Pop On And On, Jon Ali, and countless others chiming in with equal praise, as the EP soared to 250K+ streams and 70K song downloads.

She is currently working with producer Peter Thomas of Pulse Recordings on new material, and describes her artistic goal quite directly: "I'd just like to make people dance."

For the rest of her story, just press "play".

HOLYCHILD is made up of Liz Nistico and Louie Diller. In 2010 the two found themselves in a modern dance class together, while Liz danced and Louie accompanied on drums and piano. They began collaborating immediately after meeting and now make pop music to make us think.


The LA-based duo found early success in 2013 through their song, “Happy with Me,” which received over 100,000 plays in one week and got to #1 on Hype Machine’s Popular Charts. The band continues to receive local and national support, with Nylon Magazine describing the track as “mind-glowingly addictive,” Billboard grouping them in their annual “14 Artists to Watch in 2014” and LA weekly naming HOLYCHILD as “one of the ten
LA bands who are going to blow up in 2014.”


The accolades have been sweet and the pair landed a record deal with the reputable Glassnote Records early in the year. Their debut EP, MINDSPEAK, was released in March 2014 and questions society’s view of the woman from often times a sarcastic/absurdist perspective. HOLYCHILD is committed to
making their own form of music they affectionately call ‘brat pop,’ and sharing their art with the world.
