About the Artist
Having grown up in Lubbock, Texas, Beth is classically trained in piano, violin, harp and voice. After spending two years studying voice at Brevard College in North Carolina, Beth moved on to The University of Texas, where she picked up a degree in Literature and her first guitar. Teaching herself guitar, she joined a band and became part of the Austin music scene. After a few years of playing around Austin in her band, and then in a duo, Beth returned to the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina, and there became a stand-out in the Asheville songwriters community. Now an established singer/songwriter, she occasionally resides in Arlington, Texas, while continuously touring to support her four independent releases, WOODWORK (1996), NEW BLOOD (1998), LATE NIGHT RADIO (1999), and the newly released GHOSTWRITER (2001).
Beth is the complete package: a thoughtful creative songwriter, a talented multi-instrument musician, a gifted and well-trained voice, a work ethic learned early in life, and an unassuming charm and humility that defines charisma. Beth has been embraced by both pop and folk critics and fans. Her writing has a diverse range of influences, but her lyrical and melodic hooks give her songs a real pop element.
She has performed at numerous festivals: Music Midtown, Bele Chere Festival, SXSW, Kerrville Folk Festival, Nectarfest, Mandarin Folk Festival, Cottonwood Arts Festival, Dogwood Festival, Grapefest and Riverbend Festival.
While touring throughout the country, Beth has played with such artists as Steve Winwood, David Crosby, John Gorka, Shawn Colvin, Sara Hickman, Pierce Pettis, Jennifer Kimball Jonatha Brooke, Amy Ray, Ellis Paul, Freedy Johnston, Chris Whitley, David LaMotte, Chris Rosser and many other great artists.
