Beth: “I’m thrilled to announce that my new record ‘CrazyTown’ is coming out on Cooking Vinyl this fall. ‘CrazyTown’ is a collection of songs that reflect all the twists and turns of life, especially reflective of this wild ride we have all been living through. It is a joy to be working with such a fantastic team at Cooking Vinyl and I’m looking forward to hitting the road with this new music finally seeing the light of day.”
Cooking Vinyl chairman Martin Goldschmidt: ”We were very excited to work with Beth and her music until we met her…then we all fell in love with her.”
