Out on the road from a young age Beth was playing with young pros and gigging professionally by the time she was 17. Beth’s second CD Addictions recorded in Austin, Texas in 2006 included 13 tracks with 10 original songs written by Beth.
On this, her second album, she has created a live band sound that suits not only her expressive voice, but also clothes the songs, ten of which are self-penned, in just the right musical arrangements. Stylistically she blends country, blues and rock into a distinctive sound that is very much her own.

Beth Garner brings to the roots music scene remarkable songs from the Texas Hill Country. She sings with a compelling deliverance of the songs she wrote for this album. Her style is dynamic and honest without compromising her own sound. The production is super and the musicians on this session are splendid.

Garners sophomore CD showcases her confident guitar playing (and a voice that combines Bonnie Raitt with Sheryl Crow). In the case of lead track Too Many Cooks or Last Straw, Garners song writing compares favourably to those two artists as well.
