Beth Keeping combines her love of storytelling and pop melodies to create songs that speak into and about real situations. Fresh back from another trip to Nashville, she is preparing to release her debut EP after a period spent writing for others.
Keeping grew up in Woking, the town that inspired the hit song ‘Town Called Malice’ by the Jam. Despite the town’s arguably depressing legacy, as a Woking teenager Beth was inspired into music by singer-songwriters such as Delta Goodrem, John Mayer and Martyn Joseph. She started performing at Durham University open mic nights, and after graduation began busking on the streets of London and writing for other artists in the UK and abroad.
Her first single No Hard Feelings came out of the time she spent recovering from an 8 month injury, which inspired her to write more authentically about life and identity. Shortly after its release the song won a PRS for Music GIGS Songwriting Prize
In the last 2 years her search for new lyrical stories and influences has taken her on writing trips to Ireland, Estonia, Andalusia and America. Her debut EP ‘Fool’ is due in April 2018.
