NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: BETH CROWLEY!



We sat down with Beth Crowley, who is best known for her Youtube covers based on her favorite novels. "Famous is stretching it, but I've got this audience of young adult readers. Even though I'm 27 I still like to pretend I'm going on 15. I really enjoy young novels and started writing about those. It's kind of taken off." Beth exclaims.

Her most popular video has had over 1.1 million views, a fact which leaves Beth humbled. Some of Crowley's videos have covered songs from The Immortal Instruments, Hunger Games, Divergent, Harry Potter, and author
John Greene. "That's the thing when you put something on the Internet. People can just  anonymously trash it if they hate it. So that's the best way to gauge if your actually doing something people like." Crowley believes.

Beth started writing her own music a few years back. At the time she was living in South Georgia, unemployed, and on her own. She put together a mashup of 40 songs, called it The Greatest Song Ever Written and posted the video to Youtube. What happens next is great. " I went out to dinner and it had like 800 views, came back and it had like 6,000. I was like what? All of a sudden I had an audience, so I decided to put out something original and people really liked it. It inspired me to get back to my music." Crowley shares.

Beth decided it was time to move to Nashville and follow her dream of pursuing music. "It's a great place to be. I was from this small town in the middle of nowhere. It's nice to have access to good studios and stuff like this, people who are interested in the stuff you are."

We reminisced about the show Nashville. "They have become part of the town. I saw Charles Esten at a high school soccer game. It's great people respect them." She goes on to say that she finds people here nice with plenty of southern hospitality.

In 2014 Crowley put out her first EP, featuring original music. She was getting her name and her music out there, and things were starting to happen.

Another unique idea Beth had was to do a 90 Second Songs series. Every Wednesday people would send in crazy topics for songs, and she would write a song. It was interesting because it challenged her, and was fun. She recalls one song in particular. "I have really beautiful love ballads about pizza." she laughs.

Recently Beth has started writing a book. "I kind of go in between books and music. There's two separate worlds for each." Having written numerous songs of her own, she started thinking What if I wrote something that wasn't just 4 minutes to song?"

What's on her agenda this summer? Playing more live shows. Seeing where her career takes her next.

Beth Crowley describes her music as piano pop, citing Sarah Bareilles as an artist to compare her to.
