Beth Keeping draws influences from both traditional country storytelling and modern pop music. She spent two years writing for other artists in the UK, Singapore and America before recording her first EP ‘Fool’ in Nashville. Debuting last year at #3 on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart, Beth’s fresh lyrical approach and emotive vocals are building her a reputation as one to watch on the Surrey music scene.
Keeping grew up in Woking, the town that inspired the hit song ‘Town Called Malice’ by the Jam. As a 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
Her latest offering ‘Building Bridges on the Dancefloor’ marks a move away from her previous Nashville sound, while keeping the honest storytelling lyrics she is known and loved for.
The Surrey singer-songwriter is also a passionate supporter of other women in music and last year founded ‘Write Like A Girl‘, an initiative to put the spotlight back on female songwriters. Currently running monthly showcases in London, she will embark on a second Write Like A Girl tour in November 2019.
