Beth Williams is an ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC NOMINEE for BEST NEW FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR and Texas singer songwriter transplanted from Texas to Colorado who is known for her performance storytelling. Her unique approach and creative abilities as a songwriter & guitarist build an eclectic bridge between folk, Americana, country, blues, pop, gospel and roots music. Soaring vocals, artful lyrics, engaging smile and the ability to closely connect with her audience make for the powerful combination and extra edge which spells success. With 8 CDs available on her own record label, Willow Creek Records, Beth has been able to control her own musical destiny and direction.
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. She believes 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.
Moving with her family to San Antonio, TX at the beginning of her senior year of high school, Williams immediately began her full time musical career after graduating, 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. Williams set about the task of becoming an independent artist by starting her own record label, Willow Creek Records and several years later, taking her artistic independence one step further she opened a small Pro Tools 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.
In 2006, duty called Williams to take a sabbatical from performing to become a full time caregiver for her ailing 75 year old father. At the same time, she and her husband were granted custody of their 2 year old grandchild. Feeling a higher calling, Williams made the decision to quit touring and performing to be a full time caregiver for her granddaughter and father until his death. “Caring for my dad was one of the highest honors of my life. I was blessed to be able to be there for him when he needed me.”
Her granddaughter Mozelle, who is now 14, sometimes performs with her “Oma”, playing Ukulele or percussion, adding harmonies and singing lead!
Relocated from Texas to the beautiful mountains of Colorado in 2012, Beth embraces her role as “troubadour” performing at festivals, house concerts and other live music venues.
For the past 2 years she has also been producing and hosting her own Beth Williams Indie Americana Songwriter Show which airs on over 40 stations around the world.
