"Bluegrass Situation"

“‘Easy to Love’ is a fun song, but for me, it’s a little deeper than a ditty about some girl planning for her future soulmate. It’s about someone who has fully accepted herself in all her strengths and weaknesses. In fashion with the EP, she is not apologizing for who she is, but instead sending out a disclaimer… she likes herself, she’s proud of where she came from, and if a certain someone can accept and love her for what she is, she’s open for discussion. Otherwise, she’s fine continuing down the path that she’s currently on!” — Beth Snapp -

"Goldmine magazine"

Beth Snapp’s musical journey is still in its relative infancy, but after two exceptional albums — 2014‘s That Girl in the Magazine and 2017’s Write Your Name Down — she is clearly set up for success. Her new EP, Don’t Apologize, again demonstrates her ability to craft a set of songs with indelible melodies while also ruminating on the triumphs and challenges that life generally offers all of us at one time or another. Backed by a sturdy ensemble comprised of notable guests — cello player and pianist Dave Eggar, guitarist Phil Faconti, Black Lillies frontman Cruz Contreras, and her band mates Jason Crawford (banjo, Mandolin), Jay Farmer (upright bass), Kevin Jackson (fiddle), and Justin Short (drums) — she delivers these remarkable audio snapshots with a typical assured finesse that’s archival in form and yet contemporary in credence. Here again, she demonstrates a marked ability to blend gravitas with nuance, ensuring a sound that resonates through both message and melody. A distinctive artist, Snapp has brilliance etched all over. - Lee Zimmerman


Still working on that hot first release.



Beth Snapp’s egress into one of East Tennessee’s most gifted and respected singer-songwriters is a metamorphosis of triumph, played out over a trifecta of pristine, confessional studio releases that chronicle her journey of self-actualization with the warm reassurance of a wise confidante. 


Her latest, an EP entitled Don’t Apologize, is the culmination of years of growth both personally and as an artist. As the title would suggest, it’s about picking up the mess, cutting losses, and living life on her own terms. The EP’s has risen thus far to #9 on the Folk Alliance charts within the first weeks of play, and "Easy to Love" was featured on Sirius XM's Bluegrass Junction. Beth has also been featured on No Depression as well as DittyTV. 


“To me, this EP is a continuation of a journey. My second project was largely an account of just coming out of a storm. I had survived, I knew things were going to get better, but there was some healing and processing to be done. As time passed, and I did the work to heal, I emerged into a new place. I realized that surviving the storm wasn’t enough. I realized I was put on this Earth to do more than survive.”


Beth’s “Pop-Alachian” sound is a cross-over blend of country, bluegrass, pop and folk, a colorful variance where each element shines. Her silken, jazzy vocals are as delicate as a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis, softly lilting over lush, acoustic instrumentation and stirring echoes of Southern hills into the smooth, caramel creamer of an uptown latte.
