Born at the turn of the millennium, into a family whose singing roots blend English church choirs with harmonies from the Welsh Valleys, Beth really is the child who could sing before she could talk, happily cooing along to her favourite CD.
Not the Tellytubbies for Beth but Andrea Bocelli. She has always been far more at home in the world of classical artists and musical theatre than contemporary pop music. Over the years. Beth has become a firm favourite with Angry Baby, and you can find out more about her – and her music – here.

Following concert appearances with local children’s choirs, a turning point came for Beth in December 2011 when, at the age of just eleven, she was invited to join tenor Alfie Boe on stage at Symphony Hall, Birmingham, to sing ‘The Impossible Dream’ to an audience of over 2000 people. Beth’s appearance at Symphony Hall inspired her to believe that her ‘impossible dream’ is within her grasp.
Fast forward four years, and Beth was recorded singing ‘Pie Jesu’ for her mother in an almost empty church. The video was placed on YouTube and picked up by the San Francisco Globe – sending it viral and making Beth an internet sensation overnight.
More recently Beth has begun to explore her identity as a recording artist, choosing covers from her preferred repertoire. Her unreleased cover of the Judy Garland classic ‘I’m Always Chasing Rainbows’, has topped the charts twice, once in the influential Hype Machine blogsite and then in an Australian radio chart.
Her debut single. “If I Could Escape” was released shortly after, achieving critical acclaim and reaching number 2 in an iTunes chart. Following this success, Beth was invited to duet with Michael Boe on his album “Along The Way” and joined internationally renowned classical artists Rebecca Newman, Jonathan Antoine and Mary-Jess Leaverland on stage.
