Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Beth Kille has risen through the ranks of the acoustic-rock/Americana music scene since her debut in 2000. Her music is a hybrid of rock, country, folk and blues that resonates with diverse musical influences ranging from the soul of the Indigo Girls, the grit of Melissa Etheridge, the sultry vocals of Norah Jones & the groove of Ani DiFranco. She led the highly decorated Madison, WI rock band, Clear Blue Betty, for 6 years, putting out 3 award winning albums. During her tenure, Clear Blue Betty dominated the Wisconsin music scene, garnering a Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) award in 2008 for Best Band of the Southeast Quadrant and 7 Madison Area Music Awards (Rock Album of the year- twice, Rock Band of the Year- twice, Entertainer of the Year, Best Female Vocalist & Song of the Year). Its no wonder John Urban of UPN 14 dubbed her the “Reigning Queen of the Madison Rock Scene.” She launched her solo career in 2008 and has won 8 additional MAMA awards, including Artist of the Year in 2011.
