Beth Keeping debuts at #3 on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart with her first EP ‘Fool’.
Keeping released Fool on 20thApril, her debut record as a solo artist, which was recorded in Nashville, USA last year. The EP debuted in the Top 3 of the iTunes singer-songwriter chart and charted at #52 overall. The record features 5 beautifully crafted songs that draw equally from her love of modern pop melodies and traditional country storytelling.
She says: “I’ve spent a few years writing for other artists, so it’s very exciting to finally release my own project. We recorded it in a studio out in the mountains around Nashville – it was an incredible experience and the musicians were world-class. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the finished result.”
Country blog Belles and Gals said: “There is little doubt that as well as being an accomplished songwriter, Beth has a voice to match. ‘Fool’ is a fantastic listen, an all-killer no filler E.P”.
Her latest single Strangers in the Same City, which features on the EP, received high praise from UK country blogs and radio. The upbeat but emotive pop-country track navigates the complexity of breaking up with someone in a big city, and is accompanied by a stunning music video shot around London.
The Surrey singer-songwriter will celebrate the EP release with a launch show at the Zigfrid von Underbelly in London on Monday 30thApril. The following week she embarks on the ‘Write Like A Girl’ tour with fellow country artists Emily Faye and Vic Allen. The UK tour, which runs throughout May, aims to put the spotlight back on women in music, particularly female songwriters.
Fool is available to download and stream now on all music platforms. For more information on the launch nights and Write Like A Girl tour visit www.bethkeeping.com
