Born in Arcachon Bay France, Beatrice settled in Norway then returned to France and Bordeaux at 20, and now resides in Brighton. An adventurer, in love with the quaint European rail network that serves as an escape from the geeky computing world she inhabits for a living. ‘Capt. Lovelace’ refers as much to pornographic actress Linda Lovelace as the world’s first computer programmer Ada Lovelace. Beattie has shared stages with Tom Brosseau, Girlpool, Mike Watt & The Missing Men and released her debut EP /* Preview Pane */ on Damnably in August 2015.

Pure M “This heartfelt folk foray by Capt.Lovelace is a truly charming undertaking. Its merry melodies rest extremely easy on the ears along with its sunny and simple instrumentation, allowing for an engrossing listen. The whole thing bears a universally accessible quality, meaning that it’s likely to appeal to an immense audience.”
