Beth's clear vision is to share her beautiful music and stories to encourage, inspire and uplift folks towards God.
Imagine being a busy wife, mother to two teenage boys, a worship leader at church, and singing at the occasional wedding -- thinking your dream of a music career has long since passed you by. Then you feel called to enter a national talent search audition, and five weeks later you're in Nashville recording your debut album!!
In 2014, this happened to Beth. The same day nationally-recognized talent recruiter Bernard Porter heard Beth sing at a “Nashville Road Show” talent search held in Waynesboro, VA, he invited her to Nashville to record. Within one week, Beth had negotiated a contract with Bernard to record her first album. Beth realized it was the riskiest thing she'd ever done, but she knew it was providential for a lot of reasons. God led her to Bible verses confirming her decision -- "…for such a time as this" (Esther 4:14) and “For nothing will be impossible with God” (Luke 1:37). Just four weeks later on April 1, she landed in Nashville working with Dove- and Grammy-nominated producer Roger Ryan, laying down vocal tracks for her debut album. On October 11, 2014, Beth released her debut album, Clear Vision.
Beth has been sharing her talent and original music since she was a teenager growing up in Martinsville, VA. After graduating from James Madison University, she spent time working in the insurance industry, in addition to serving as a worship leader in her church, and being a wife and mom. She resides with her family in Harrisonburg, VA. Beth has always been passionate about using her musical gifts and stories to point others to Jesus, to inspire others to become all they are created to be, and to encourage others in their struggles.
Beth's songs have received radio airplay worldwide in the Bahamas; on Women of Substance Radio out of California, as well as local radio airplay, too. On October 11, 2016, exactly two years after her debut album release, Beth performed at the 47th Annual Dove Awards in Nashville, singing “One True God” in a choir with Steven Curtis Chapman. God opened this amazing door for Beth.
Beth performs a Signature Concert and Signature Program, with an uplifting message, including her songs and stories. Beth loves sharing inspiring stories of her music journey, along with original music and some covers. Her concert continues to flourish, as her music career is influenced by God in all His faithfulness.
