Modern Folk Artist Beth Whitney
Beth Whitney crafts her original wild folk with husband/collaborator Aaron Fishburn. Aaron's steady rhythms and swelling bows create an unmatchable tone on the upright bass, and paired with Beth's beautifully haunting vocals, lands an unparalleled combination.
After touring the nation for 7 years as a solo artist and more recently as co-founder of the award-winning group, The Banner Days, Beth Whitney has emerged from a year in and out of the studio with a seasoned collection of her best work yet.
Released in the fall of 2017, THE WILD UNREST is made of seven movements that merge as a single masterpiece, where wilderness and the human heart collide. The new release, produced by long-time collaborator, Brandon Bee, features such northwest favorites as Aaron Fishburn on upright bass, Natalie Mai Hall on cello, Jonathan Berry on violin, as well as harmonies by Ellen Whitney, Carina Lewis, Sarah Gerritsen, and Kate Lynne Logan.
"This record is simply beautiful on every level. The songs are emotional and gripping. The arrangements keep the listener involved, the performances are inspired. To top it all off Beth's vocals are gorgeous. I really can't wait for everyone to hear this record!" -Ed Brooks, Resonant Mastering
Although the roots of her latest offering grew from a dark landscape, listeners can sense a theme of a quiet simmering and growing strength from the opening track, "Raven,"through to the last note of "Fireflies," a song she wrote using an original poem by acclaimed American poet, Linda Pastan, and featured by the Seattle Arts & Lecture Series. "What a lovely rendition of my poem. It really captures in music what I was trying to say in words. -Linda Pastan
