Beth's clear vision is to share beautiful music and stories to encourage, uplift & inspire folks.
Imagine being a busy wife, mother to two teenage boys, a worship leader at church, and singing at the occasional wedding -- thinking your dream of a music career has long since passed you by. Then you feel called to enter a national talent search audition, and four weeks later you're in Nashville recording your debut album!!
In 2014, this happened to Beth. The same day nationally-recognized talent recruiter Bernard Porter heard Beth sing at a “Nashville Road Show” talent search held in Waynesboro, VA, he invited her to Nashville to record. Within one week, Beth had negotiated a contract with Bernard to record her first album. Beth realized it was the riskiest thing she'd ever done, but she knew it was providential for a lot of reasons. God led her to Bible verses confirming her decision -- "…for such a time as this" (Esther 4:14) and “For nothing will be impossible with God” (Luke 1:37). Just four weeks later in April 2014, Beth landed in Nashville working with Dove- and Grammy-nominated producer Roger Ryan, laying down vocal tracks for her debut album. She traveled to Nashville 3 times, logging 3,600 miles within six weeks. Beth found studio work to be the easiest, most fun thing she'd ever done her entire life. On October 11, 2014, Beth released her Clear Vision Debut Album.
Beth has been sharing her talent and original music since she was a teenager growing up in her hometown - Martinsville, Virginia. After graduating from James Madison University, she spent time working in the insurance industry, in addition to serving as a worship leader in her church, and being a wife and mom. Beth has persevered through many trials, such the death of her father when she was 27, infertility, adoption, death of her brother when she was 49, plus much more. She resides with her family in Harrisonburg, VA. Beth has always been passionate about using her musical gifts and stories to point others to Jesus, to inspire others to become all they are created to be, and to encourage others in their struggles.
Beth performs a Signature Concert and Signature Program, with an uplifting message, including her songs and stories. Beth loves sharing inspiring stories of her music journey, along with original music and some covers. Beth's music career journey is influenced and directed by God in all His faithfulness.
