Feeling a bit camera shy


Bea sings and strums her folky pop songs with the same sincerity she uses to write them. Spending her early adult years in Dallas, Texas, Bea acquainted herself with the local music scene and played every stage she could from small pubs to large capacity venues and opened for acts such as Norah Jones, John Mayer and James Taylor. Her ambitions eventually drove her to NYC where she played on subway platforms to make rent.

Bea self released two albums- her full length “The Critics Call you a Genius” and an EP entitled “Somebody, Anybody”. Both are composed of raw, modest, sometimes live, and low budget recordings intentionally highlighting what Bea insists is the most important thing about writing good music- honesty. “My songs don’t hide anything, and I won’t sing it unless it’s true. Honesty makes you feel. If I’m singing my song to someone who’s going through some real shit, I hope it makes them feel less alone. And if I’m singing it about you, I kinda hope it breaks your heart the same way mine had to be to write it. That’s when you know it’s good.”

Bea later began work as a fashion designer and found herself writing and performing far less often. But a five year break from music, a beautiful baby boy and a move to upstate later, Bea found herself being once again drawn to her first loves- her guitar and the stage.

Almost always playing solo, Bea delivers every thoughtful lyric of her hook-strong songs with simplicity while still managing to evoke a range of emotions including, delight, anguish and melancholy.

Bea’s third and forthcoming album is her first full length studio recorded effort. Outfitted with the formidable talents of Grammy Award winning drummer and noted producer, Brady Blade (Dave Matthews, Emmylou Harris, Jewel) and accomplished award winning engineer, Chris Bell (U2, The Eagles, Erykah Badu), the album is expected for release later this year.
