CMA Fan Fair June.11th-14th/15

Wow .. it is finally here! I am SO EXCITED to be picked again as the only Canadian Artist Exhibitor at the 2015 CMA Fan Fair in Nashville, TN. I am trying very hard to be an ambassador for Canadian Country Music while down in Music City USA! Fan Fair is so cool, because I get to meet fans who connect online through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, etc - BUT also get to meet new people and try and make new fans. It's so rewarding being able to talk to people face to face and really thank them for supporting and believing in me.
I set up my booth the night before and I was so happy with the end result :) I'll be posting pictures on my 'photo's' tab here on my website - so be sure to come back and check that out in a few weeks when I'm able to upload everything in!
The first day of Fan Fair (June.11) was crazy - so busy - my amazing workers/friends did such an amazing job helping to take pictures, hand out free things and let people know I was signing autographs. I am so bad at taking breaks haha ... they had to force me to take a lunch break the first day because I wanted to make sure I saw every last person!
The next three days were wonderful too, I met some super cool people and had some really awesome chats with fans that stopped by the booth. I decided to go to the artist "green room" for lunch over these three days and it was so amazing - they had a spread of food, drinks, couches, tables to eat lunch at and the food was SO good! I was able to meet some new people in the industry, connect with some old friends/artists that were performing or had a booth like mine too. There were lots of celebrities in the green room and over the course of the Fan Fair I was able to meet some legends and some of my idols growing up like Jamie O'Neal, Phil Vasser, Lynn Anderson, Brenda Lee, and newer artists like Meghan Linsey, and Sherry Lynn - who recorded my song 'Merry Christmas To Me'.
All in all it was an amazing experience. I got so many people to sign my "guest" book (a huge poster) and had lots of interested in people signing up for my mailing list. Speaking of that ... I have to input almost 400 emails by hand and send out some free music! So I have to run, but thank you again for watching, supporting and listening. YOU guys are the best :)
Tour, Singles & More!

What a crazy wonderful couple months of 2013 it has been!! I am so excited to share with all of you some of the things brewing for the rest of the year. Firstly, I am SO excited about my new website! Not only is it beautiful and fully functional .... but I can update everything myself! This means more blogs, pictures, video, updates and having everything in ONE place. This means it's easier for you to find out what I'm doing, where I am and what kinda special things YOU can take part in! :)
Apart from launching my website in January, my management team also represented me at Midem - the world's biggest music conference in France! We had some amazing feedback from industry professionals, made some great connections and have some promising things happening for the end of this year. Can't wait to see where these relationships lead, and where my songs will take me!
My next BIG news is that I was signed to a Booking Agency called 'Firebones' Management! For an independant artist, that is a big thing because it means they are putting their faith in you as an artist that you will be able to draw in a big crowd and do well out on tour. Usually artists on a record label or that have a huge following get these deals - so I am VERY excited and grateful for this opportunity!
What does this mean? It means going on TOUR and getting to see all of your beautiful faces! It means playing with bigger acts in bigger venues and getting the opportunity to spread my music and gain more fans! The only catch is I need all of YOU to come out to shows if I'm in your area & support me at these venues. You guys have the chance to watch my career from the start, and that's very exciting - as I want to share this journey with you!
That being said ... the next BIG news is that I'm planning a TOUR! (Did you see that coming?) Yay! I am hoping to be heading out from September - December to as many places as I can possible get booked - across Canada AND the United States. This North American Tour will be small to start - but I know with your help (sharing my music/inviting friends to shows/ spreading the word) I can make the next tour even bigger!
Oh wait, there's more! So enlight of this exciting news of being signed to a booking agency and planning a tour ... I've decided to release a single in the summer, then release a 7 song EP in the fall. I'll record a few more songs after my tour and I'll release ANOTHER 7 song EP in 2014!! What this means is more music for you on a consistant basis, and another couple tours in 2014. It also means not having to wait another 2-3 years for me to release another album.
Oh yes, there's more! I've decided that it's been so long since my 'Open Road' music video that I really want to record another 'Official' Music Video! I haven't decided which song yet ... but I will most likely be releasing that video in September in conjunction with the release of my EP and my tour! I'm really excited for this because it's been so long since a video shoot! I'm super girly, so any excuse to get my hair & make-up done and prance around in a dress infront of a camera is a good time for me! haha.
Very last thing ... or two. I just want to thank you guys for being so amazing, supportive & having my back. I know that it's taking time to rise to the top of this crazy music industry, but knowing you all love my music/writing and won't give up when the times are hard or slow mean the WORLD to me. Watching my twitter and facebook following grow so steadily and the amount of feeback I get from you guys is so encouraging and really help me stay focused. Never stop that, you guys are amazing!
Some of you know that I have lost a lot of weight, and that is still a struggle for me today. I'm making a commitment to be healthy and happy both in my mind and spirit, but in my body with food and exercise too. I want to make sure I am in the best place to be a good role model for kids/teens that might see me on tour and be an inspiration for those who are going through this themselves. YOU are not alone & It's nice to know I'm not either.
OK! That's a huge post & now I have to go finish some songs, so make sure to keep coming back for updates -- don't forget to sign up for my mailing list & you will get a FREE song at the end of the month! Love you guys! <3 Beth

Wow! I can’t believe it’s another year already. 4 Years ago I started on a journey of writing and pursuing music and I can’t believe how much has happened! Before I announce all the exciting things brewing for 2013 … let’s re-cap 2012!
From putting on a youth talent showcase called Mosaic, to being nominated for ‘Song of the the year’ at the Vancouver Island Music Awards, to singing and playing with some amazing stars in Nashville, to writing and recording my 2nd album … 2012 was a jam packed year! I had so much fun meeting new people and making so many wonderful connections – I have been truly blessed.
This year I’m excited to announce I have been selected to showcase at the worlds biggest music conferences in Paris, France, called Midem. The opportunity to have my music introduced to publishers, record labels, distribution houses & booking agents is an extremely wonderful blessing!
I have been writing for 2 years for my second album, and I’m thrilled that I’ve finished recording the songs … now we are just finishing up the mixing & mastering … then I have to prepare the artwork and manufacture the album! Hoping to have all this finished by the summer … the release date for the album will be announced soon!
I am planning on being at the annual CMA Fest in Nashville this year – so keep your ears to the ground – you may be able to catch some of the shows! Also, I am hoping to do a few tours in North America and Europe this year – that will also be announced at a later date!
In the mean time, keep coming back to my beautiful new website and stay current with everything I’m doing! Check my twitter feed or like me on facebook, or come back here and view new videos, blogs, pictures and more!
I hope 2013 proves to be a very successful and wonderful year for all of you – until next time,
