BETH WOOD is modern-day troubadour and a force to be reckoned with. Her exceptional musicianship, crafty songwriting, and commanding stage presence have been winning over American audi- ences for fifteen years. Beth’s music is soulful, organic, intelligent, barefoot, high-energy communication of joy. With grandiose dreams of becoming a musician, Beth left west Texas to study voice and piano at Brevard College in North Carolina. A detour from her classical studies led her to Austin, where she picked up a degree in literature and a guitar. Beth began writing her own songs and quickly discovered a feeling of musical freedom. Fifteen years, thousands of shows, nine albums, three cars, and numerous awards later, Beth has never looked back.
