That is the clear focus in her presentations as she deems herself a creativity whisperer with a passion for inspiring others to fully blossom into their creative potential which is the birthright of every human.

After the feedback, any songs that are rewritten and improved will be brought back to the show. All about making good songs GREAT!

September of 2022 will bring the release of Beths 15th solo album, CrazyTown on Cooking Vinyl. Working with legendary producer Ray Kennedy (Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle) this one is going to be epic!
Beth will be back out touring in support of CrazyTown in 2022 so get ready to laugh and cry and, well, just fasten your seat belt. One thing you can count on at a BNC concert is one great song after another and some fascinating stories woven inbetween.
