Did I Mention I Never Lie?
Here are the Beth Willis musical ingredients---- Combine a wonderfully rich, expressive voice with tremendously affecting lyrics that'll make you laugh and cry and think and feel within a wide-ranging musical framework that runs the gamut from folk to rock to blues to country...and beyond. Beth Willis will make you laugh knowingly with the rollicking 'Drinking With The Boys' as she works 'masturbation' and 'cogitation' into the lyrics framework. Beth Willis will touch your heart with the wry, sad 'Nothing' ('..We were soulmates... Then you must have lost your soul...') and with the poignant pain of 'Distance' ('I know that I'm restless... And I think that I'm free... But I'm so numb and broken.. And I'm so tired of me.') And, Beth Willis takes stark self-deprecation to new and often humorous levels with 'Masquerading Again' ('I keep reinventing life as I know it... Keep ripping apart with no chance to sew it...'). Whatever mood you reach...Beth Willis reaches out to it and to you. Brilliant. Deep. Hysterical. Cerebral. Seriously, seriously talented. Beth Willis is, indeed, for all of you--- head, heart, gut and funny bone. Beth Willis is Portland's musical treasure. Let her get to you now...and often. Listen up. Morry Feldman, Clear Channel.
