Hello there, I’m Beth Wood – modern-day troubadour poet and believer in the power of song. I’ve been writing, performing, recording and touring for most of my life. These adventures have resulted in thousands of live shows, boatloads of wonderful memories and collaborations, and countless weird situations that all add up to my life as a full time musician and artist. I’ve released eleven solo CDs, one collaboration project, two books of poetry, and a book of awkward stories from the road. This year I started a new duo called Stand and Sway with my friend the insanely talented Ara Lee James, and we will release our debut album Deep Blue later this year.
Twenty plus years as an artist have inspired and humbled me beyond imagining. I am so grateful for this life and for all of you who support and encourage me on my path. I hope you’ll find what you’re looking for here!
