Beth Quist New Moon
Beth Quist's latest album, New Moon, draws from all her influences covering many genres. The album journey begins more in the West, travels through quiet pensive landscapes & driving percussive tunes, then ends with a traditional Turkish song. Beth's signature soaring 4-octave soprano vocals weave throughout. High tech samples are blended with ancient acoustic instruments like hammered dulcimer & Persian daff. Beth plays all the instruments except cello/track 8: James Hoskins, & doumbek/track 2: Nathan Good.
In the years since Beth released her last solo album she's flown 65 feet in the air with Cirque du Soliel, toured Europe & played Carnegie Hall with Bobby McFerrin. Now she has finally found a supportive space to create & record in the remote CO mountains. Beth is psyched & grateful to have the opportunity to share her solo music with all who are interested & supportive.
