The Rise of Beth Bombara
Today's Artist Spotlight features gifted Beth Bombara - a musician you definitely need to know. Hailing from St. Louis, she first came to my attention a few years ago with her breakout, self-titled record - so good it made my Best of 2015 List. Bombara has a world class singing voice and a old soul. (This is an unique performer and I knew, even then, that it wouldn't be long until she broke through.) Last year's new album and the resulting tour for Map & No Direction proved me right.
FROM HER BIO - With a folksinger’s head and a rocker’s heart, Beth Bombara has built her career on an evolving sound, touching the roots of American music. To those who make their living onstage, she’s a musician’s musician -- a road warrior who writes her own material, plays multiple instruments and fronts her own band, while also performing solo on occasion. With 2017’s "Map & No Direction," Bombara’s songs take aim at a larger audience with melodic hooks that showcase a love not only for roots-rock, but the irresistible punch of classic pop, too.
