Bethany Becker is an internationally signed 19 year old recording artist and singer/songwriter from Austin, Texas. She has a love for country music that shows in her writing style and sound. In addition to singing and songwriting, she enjoys playing the guitar, acting, and spending time with her friends and four brothers (Who have to listen to her sing constantly around the house and have been begging her to shut up their entire lives. She likes to believe that they secretly think she’s cool:)).
Writing songs is her outlet and way of expressing the thoughts and emotions she’s feeling (She likes to say that no one is safe from making it into one of her songs…sorry not sorry friends, family, and potential unsuspecting love interests). Bethany has wanted to pursue a career in music since she was in the first grade. When she was 13, she started pursuing her dream by attending the Actors Models and Talent for Christ convention in Orlando Florida. A few months later she was contacted by a woman who connected her with several music consultants.
Summer 2013 Bethany traveled to Nashville, TN to write and record her first EP with Grammy nominee Keith Follese, Adrianne Follese and Grammy award winner Liz Rose. Her EP, Maybe More, features songs inspired by Bethany’s personal experiences as a teenager that she believes will tug on the heart strings of people of all ages. The Maybe More EP and the official music video for the title track Maybe More were released in February 2014. Since their release, the Maybe More official video has gained over 100,000 views on YouTube and both Bethany’s song Right Place Wrong Time and the Maybe More official video were nominated for the 2014 Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
She was recently awarded the Young Artist Award at the 31st annual Mid-Atlantic Song Contest for her song Right Place Wrong Time and her songs Maybe More and We Can Save Us were both nominated for the 2015 American Songwriting Awards. In addition, she was voted Female Vocalist of the Year in the 2015 BareBones Entertainment Awards. Bethany recently signed a record deal with Spectra Music Group and released her debut album entitled “I Want Love” internationally on May 6th, 2016. Her first single from the album entitled “I Want Love,” created with the help of Grammy nominated songwriter and producer Jeff Pardo, released internationally on November 17th, 2016. The music video for the track has gained over 200,000 views on YouTube.
She was also selected as a Semi-Finalist in both the Country and Music Video categories of the 2015 International Songwriting Competition for the single. Recently, the full album won the Akademia Award for Best Country Album, Bethany was nominated for two 2016 Hollywood Music in Media Awards and two 2016 Barebones Entertainment Awards, and she was selected as a Semi-Finalist in the 2016 International Songwriting Competition for her song “Walls.” “Walls” was also announced as a Finalist in the Country category of the 2016 John Lennon Songwriting Contest.
Bethany’s dream is to continue to write and record clean music that is relatable for people of all ages.
