The Capitol Theatre of Greeneville’s Appalachian Homegrown Series continues in November with Jill Andrews and Beth Snapp, who will open the show.
Jill Andrews began her music career in 2004 by co-founding the alt-country group, The Everybodyfields. After releasing three albums and touring the country with the band, she decided to make a go of it on her own. In 2009, she released her self-titled EP, followed up with the full-length album, The Mirror in 2011. Jill has been on the road with The Avett Brothers and many other super talented folks. Her songs have been showcased on such shows as Grey’s Anatomy, Nashville, Hart of Dixie, American Idol…etc. Her latest album, “The War Inside,” was released in 2015. Jill currently resides in Nashville, TN, but her roots are planted firmly in the hills of Appalachia.
Beth Snapp might be considered pop infused roots, but her appeal has little to do with the box of a genre. It’s a connection. She flits around and between folk, bluegrass, pop, early R&B and jazz to create a unique sound with one purpose – to serve a story. Beth highlights the complex emotions that fall on every day moments, and reels the listener in with an “I’ve been there before” kind of sensation. Beth’s new album “Write Your Name Down”, which released in early 2017, recounts the introspection and growth of a new chapter in life. Produced by Grammy winning bluegrass guitarist Tim Stafford, this album features a number of acclaimed artists as well as Beth’s talented band, whose members bring diverse backgrounds to further ingrain her detour from standard classifications of music. Regardless of style, Beth hovers where modern meets tradition, to create an experience that speaks to the listener.
