Stroud date for Nashville Grammy nominee this Spring
By David Wood
If you are going to a Beth Nielsen Chapman concert get ready to laugh and cry and, well, just fasten your seat belt.
One thing you can count on is one great song after another and some fascinating stories woven between them.
As part of her 2022 'All Around The World Tour' the Texan songwriting superstar will be pitching up at Stroud Subscription Rooms on Friday, April 29.
The twice Grammy-nominated Nashville-based singer has released 13 solo albums and written seven number 1 hits and songs recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Bette Midler, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Michael McDonald, Keb Mo', Roberta Flack, Waylon Jennings, Indigo Girls, & Faith Hill's Mega-hit This Kiss.
Her songs have been featured in film and TV and as an artist Beth's work has been diverse, from singing in nine different languages on Prism (2007) to The Mighty Sky (2012) Grammy-nominated astronomy CD for kids of all ages in addition to her deeply moving body of work as a singer-songwriter throughout her other releases.
2014's UnCovered in which she reclaims her hits, features legendary guests from Vince Gill to Duane Eddy. Sand & Water (1997), written in the wake of her husband's death, was performed by Elton John to honour the memory of Princess Diana.
In the Autumn of 2016, Beth, along with Olivia Newton-John and Amy Sky created and toured behind an inspiring project called Liv On.
Inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2016, Beth is also a breast cancer survivor and environmentalist and considers herself a creativity midwife, passionate about inspiring others to fully blossom into their creative life.
Throughout her career, Beth has been in demand as a keynote speaker and teacher of workshops on creativity, songwriting, grief, and healing through art, using a unique inspiring approach to tapping into the creative process. She has also taught at universities internationally.
Hearts Of Glass, Beth's 2018 album and most recent is a riveting and sparse listen. A powerful collection of songs that reach into the place within us where vulnerability meets strength, right into the centre of the full beautiful dance of contradictions that inhabit love and life.
As a new year dawns, the Spring of 2022 will bring the release of Beth's 15th solo album, which is confirmed to coincide with her 'All Around The World' Tour. Working with legendary producer Ray Kennedy (Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle) it promises to be an unmissable addition to the Beth's seminal catalogue.
