Here's a little bit about this week's featured artist(s): Beth Whitney
Beth Whitney crafts original wild folk from a homestead her grandparents built by hand in the seasonally rich mountains of the Pacific Northwest. “She delves beneath the surface-- sometimes far beneath-- trying to find... something. What she creates during that search is haunting and eerily beautiful.” Frank Gutch Jr., No Depression.
Often performing as a duo, husband/collaborator Aaron Fishburn folds in steady rhythms and swelling bows with unmatchable tone on the upright bass. Although Beth and Aaron were raised on opposite sides of Washington state, the pair met when they were 4-years-old, hiked and rock-climbed throughout childhood at summer camp, and eventually joined up musically one midnight at Whitworth University in Spokane, WA, when they both happened to walk through the double doors of the music building. Although they'd known each other most of their lives, they'd hardly exchanged a word before that evening, but they’ve made music ever since.
After touring the nation for 7 years together and more recently as part of the award-winning duo with over 2 million streams on Spotify, The Banner Days, Beth Whitney has emerged from a year in and out of the studio with a seasoned collection of “very personal songs with wide open arms.” -Jason Weebly, Anti-Heroin Chic. The Wild Unrest is made of seven movements that merge as a single work, where wilderness and the human heart collide. "Beth Whitney pulls the listener inside that cabin with her, to experience what she experiences as the vessel, the flickering form, the inspired messenger." -Carol Banks Weber, Festival Peak.
