The San Antonio Express - News writes "No sappy writer, no overt heartstring tugger, Williams instead is the kind of person who walks on the sunny side, uses common sense, sees the glass as half full & finds the silver lining in dark clouds".

 

KNBT Radio says "Beth's songs are not written as much as crafted, her soaring vocals add just the right amount of electricity to each track. When you hear her psychedelic yodel-chants on ODI, you'll laugh out loud, and you'll be hooked for good."

 

"Yes, she is a wonderful singer, beautiful voice ..... But there's something more. This songwriter does "message music", she makes the spirit soar..I love it!" says KACQ/KCYL RADIO.

MORE ABOUT BETH: Born on Ramey Air Force Base in Puerto Rico, the nomadic life of the military led Beth's family to Pakistan, the Philippines, Texas, Florida, Georgia, and Okinawa twice, all before she turned seventeen. Between tours of duty, the family flew back to the USA, and drove from California to Georgia to visit relatives. During these hot, dusty drives, Beth recalls her dad singing to help pass the time. It was the comforting sound of her fathers resonating voice, and mothers gift for playing piano that instilled her love of music early on.


Beth's passion for singing and songwriting began as a child. While living on Peshawar AFB in Pakistan at the age of 13, Beth happened upon a lone GI sitting on the bleachers of a deserted baseball field, singing and playing a guitar. Her destiny was sealed as she ran home to tell her parents she wanted to sing and play guitar. Her parents bought her a $10.00 guitar at the PX later that same year when they were relocated to Okinawa. While there, Beth entered the Talent Show at Kubasaki High School and won First Place singing an original song.

Her family moved to San Antonio, TX at the beginning of her senior year of high school. Immediately after graduating from John Jay High, she began her fulltime musical career, delighting Texas audiences, touring Central Texas, military bases and overseas. After some years of struggle, Beth Williams' musical endeavors seemed to be paying off as she began to make her mark in the commercial field finding her songs in the National Charts right in the middle of Steve Warner and Roseanne Cash.

Just as her career was heading mainstream she began moving in the opposite direction with her songwriting and musical abilities. Finding the obligation of touring non-stop to be more than she wanted to deal with at that time, Williams set about the task of becoming even more independent by starting her own Willow Creek Record label and several years later. Taking her artistic independence one step further she opened a small ProTools recording studio, Hill Country Recording plus Video. Her reputation as a excellent vocalist and harmony singer has brought Williams clients from all over the world who send her tracks via the Internet to add backup vocals to their projects or sing lead on their demos.

Williams currently tours throughout Colorado performing and delighting crowds with her original music or one of her Specialty Shows! She also works in her studio recording new material to be released in the future!
