FOLK: like Ani, ROCK: Roots Rock
Beth Preston: just a girl trying to spread the love.
But it’s not all rainbows, moonbeams and fairytales for this Southern-Californian musician. Try lightning bolts, skateboards and broken guitar strings, and you’re getting a little closer to the real Beth Preston.
Frustration, heartache, uncertainty, acceptance and strength of mind can all be found in Preston’s music – what else can one expect from a vegan and political activist living in a George-Bush-led America?
Not just another angry folk-rocker, this girl’s got a ‘light that shines and fire that burns’. She’s exposing the roots and finding the flow – both lyrically and musically. Preston’s amazing vocals and soulful performances have landed her support slots with Xavier Rudd, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Blue King Brown, to name just a few.
With her musical journey beginning at age zero, Preston is not stranger to performing. Her first gig being “..in the parking lot of one of my Mom’s gigs, with a tip jar, and a kid-sized accordion..”
Aside from her more recognized musical influences (PJ Harvey, Ani Difranco, Cat Power, Elliot Smith, Jeff Buckley, Manu Chao, Hendrix, etc) her parents have been a huge inspiration, “ My mom is the most amazing blues singer and poet I''ve ever witnessed, and my father, a world-class guitarist and writer...”
Her upbringing, huge heart, and burning desire to communicate her beliefs and feelings through music, create a performer who’s not afraid to explore her musical boundaries, and who definitely is not shy to the stage! Anyone who’s seen a Beth Preston gig will know, she owns it.**
