I sat down with the very talented Beth for a Q&A whilst she was preparing for her UK tour..
Scott – Your single “Snow Angels” has been a big hit, Which charity did you donate the single to?
Beth – I wanted to work with a charity for Snow Angels..I decided to work with ‘Make A Wish Foundation’ This fantastic charity grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life threatening conditions. These children are going through a lot, I would like to grant a child a wish. If I can help in any way I am more than happy to do so.
Make a Wish work so hard to grant magical wishes for children and young adults, Make a Wish help create many magical memories for families.
Scott – You have a big following on YouTube channel, Is this how you started off?
Beth – It’s been a gradual journey really, I knew I wanted to peruse a career in music from the age of 6. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve always worked really hard studying music, I participated in local/national competitions from a young age, I performed in musicals such as Don Quixote starring alongside George Costigan and Matthew Kelly.
I attended music/choir/gospel choirs/writing workshops, singing lessons as well as performing at many world class venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, Barclaycard Arena, Manchester Arena. It’s been an amazing journey so far and supporting The Saturdays was a fantastic experience as well as performing at Wembley Arena. That was a dream come true for me!
Scott – Is a new album in the pipeline?
Beth – Yes I have been working on my EP and I about to release my second single which I’m really exited about. My sound has definitely matured I have grown as an artist. I like to be really descriptive when writing, I have pushed myself and this is because I have been experimenting more in the studio. I have been more involved in the productive side of my music and I have loved it. I wanted to raise the bar, I’ve added more flavour into my music filled with cool catchy hooks.
It’s been more of a natural process this time around, I have taken my time in the studio. I’ve listened to difference/quirky/natural elements of sound reflecting this in my material.
Scott – Congratulations on the tour kicking off in Glasgow on 30th March! Can you confirm your dates & city’s you be going to?
Beth – Yes I can’t wait to get back on the road again! I’m so excited for my fans to hear my new material! I am performing at the Audio in Glasgow on March 30th, I am performing at the Hare and Hounds in Birmingham on April 10th..I will be announcing more tour dates soon on my website so stay tuned!
Scott – Have you ever thought on auditioning for “The Voice” or “X Factor” in the past?
Beth – The X Factor and The Voice has enabled many artists to break into the music industry but at the moment, I am enjoying working on my own album and writing my own songs 🙂
Scott – Can you remember the first record you ever bought?
Beth – Yes. ‘Wannabe’ by The Spice Girls! Girl Power all the way! I use to dress up as scary spice all the time at school discos and parties! I absolutely loved them!
Scott – If you could pick anyone to do a collaboration with who would it be? 🙂
Beth – I love Beyoncé, she is the ultimate diva!!! The energy she creates on stage is incredible. And Jay Z is amazing! I was lucky enough to see them perform together at the 02 and for me seeing them perform together was the highlight of The Mrs Carter Show.
I also love Ed Sheeran, I think he is a fantastic songwriter and he seems such a genuine guy.
Scott – Who is your music icon?
Beth – There are many artists over the years that have influenced me musically, when I was younger my parents use to listen to Dusty Springfield, Carol King, Michael Jackson and Alicia Keys, the latter of which was my initial inspiration to write songs.
