Beth Lee & the Breakups w/ Mary McAdams
Beth Lee & the Breakups
Based out of Austin, TX, Beth Lee grew up on the grit and soul of the Houston music scene, her dad a long time musician of the Bayou City. Since 2008, Beth has been playing in a band and recording her original music with Austin musicians that have an ear for her songwriting ability. She has toured through several states over the past few years in support of her 2013 release One More Time Again, honing in and developing her energetic live performances. She has evolved her soulful, heart-on-your-sleeve songwriting style to include a sultry, sassy, rock ‘n’ roll edge. Her most recent album, Keep Your Mouth Shut, released May 5th, 2016, garnered positive reviews from independent radio and roots publications, including a #19 rank on the Americana Music Show‘s year-end list and a flattering review from KUTX’s Laurie Gallardo, who coined the sound as “country-fried rock ‘n’ soul”. It was also listed in Alternate Root Magazine and Third Coast Music Magazine as one of the year’s top picks. Produced by John Bush (Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians), it features longtime drummer Ralph Power, bassist Amanda Darnell, and guitarists Landis Armstrong, Adam Burchfield, Matt Giles, and Eric Hisaw.
Mary McAdams lives in Des Moines, what is sometimes called “the heartland,” and her music is a mix of folk and Americana and blues. She has performed at music festivals, art festivals, house concerts, coffeehouses and schools. Mary performs solo, duo and with her full band.
