Recorded over several months at Chem19 Studios and Green Door, Booth's sophomore album Lazybody will be released in November 2021. Booth's debut album An Unforgiving Light (Last Night From Glasgow/ Scottish Fiction) was released in 2017 to critical acclaim. It was lauded as Roddy Hart's Record of Note (BBC Radio Scotland), featured in Vic Galloway's Best Albums of 2017 (BBC Radio Scotland) and was praised by Jim Gellatly (Amazing Radio). 2018 saw her perform at the BBC's Quay Sessions and festivals such as XpoNorth, Celtic Connections and the Kelburn Garden Party.
Adopting a more introspective and atmospheric approach, Booth's 2019 EP Spectral (Last Night From Glasgow/ Scottish Fiction) displays her poignant lyricism and haunting vocals at their most raw. The EP was championed by BBC Radio Scotland, The Skinny and The List, with Booth appearing for a live session on the BBC's Janice Forsyth Show. Booth was subsequently nominated for a Scottish Alternative Music Award in the Best Acoustic category late 2019.
The singer-songwriter is also known for her enthusiasm for collaboration. From 2015 to 2020 she performed backing vocals and guitar with prolific dark- folk collective Mt. Doubt, touring across Scotland, England and Wales and recording on numerous records. 2020 saw the release of Clean Living (Last Night From Glasgow) under the moniker Slow Weather: a vintage-infused EP of alt-rock cowritten with producer extraordinaire Chris McCrory. The release garnered praise and spins from Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 6), BBC Radio Scotland and Amazing Radio as well as features and airplay in the US. Over the years Booth has also collaborated on tracks with artists such indietronica outfit Out of the Swim and indie pop quintet Wojtek the Bear.
