Beth Nielsen Chapman
If you are going to a Beth Nielsen Chapman concert get ready to laugh and cry and, well, just
fasten your seat belt. One thing you can count on is one great song after another and some
fascinating stories woven between them.
Twice Grammy-nominated Nashville based, Beth Nielsen Chapman has released thirteen solo
albums and written seven #1 hits and songs recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Bette
Midler, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Michael McDonald, Keb Mo’, Roberta Flack, Waylon Jennings,
Indigo Girls, & Faith Hill’s Mega-hit This Kiss, ASCAP's 1999 Song Of The Year. Her songs have been featured in film and TV and as an artist Beth’s work has been diverse, from singing in nine
different languages on Prism (2007) to The Mighty Sky (2012) Grammy-nominated astronomy CD
for kids of all ages in addition to her deeply moving body of work as a singer-songwriter
throughout her other releases. 2014’s UnCovered in which she reclaims her hits, features
legendary guests from Vince Gill to Duane Eddy. Sand & Water (1997), written in the wake of her
husband’s death, was performed by Elton John to honor the memory of Princess Diana. In the fall
of 2016, Beth, along with Olivia Newton-John & Amy Sky created and toured behind an inspiring
project called Liv On - A New Album to Aid & Comfort Those Experiencing Grief & Loss While Using the Power of Music To Heal.
Inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2016, Beth is also a breast cancer survivor and
environmentalist and considers herself a creativity midwife, passionate about inspiring others to fully
blossom into their creative life.
Throughout her career, Beth has been in demand as a keynote speaker and teacher of
workshops on creativity, songwriting, grief, and healing through art, using a unique inspiring
approach to tapping into the creative process. She has also taught at Universities internationally
including the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama, The Liverpool Institute of Performing
Arts, and the Berklee School of Music among others.
Hearts Of Glass, Beth’s 2018 album, riveting and sparse, is a powerful collection of songs that
reach into the place within us where vulnerability meets strength which is often where Beth’s
songs will take you, right into the center of the full beautiful dance of contradictions that inhabit
love and life.
Early next year Beth will debut “The SongSchool Podcast” which will feature legendary guest
songwriters describing what they consider the “perfect song” as well as on the spot critiques for
songs submitted, both live in the studio and down the phone line from the other side of the world.
After the feedback, any songs that are rewritten and improved will be brought back to the show.
All about making good songs GREAT!
Most recently Beth has been invited to be an Ambassador for the Buddy Holly Educational
The fall of 2021 will bring the release of Beth’s 15 th solo album along with a world tour starting in
the UK. Working with legendary producer Ray Kennedy (Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle) this one
is going to be epic!
