"In the over-crowded, somewhat stale field of Americana, Betty Soo is the very real deal." (Houston Press) Her "voice is gorgeous — soulful, tender…BettySoo absolutely nails it!" (Maverick). At the ripe age of 26 — within weeks of writing her first song, BettySoo dropped out of graduate school, chucked a mortgage-paying day job and emptied her savings account to launch a music career.
Relax, it’s working out for her, given the Austin-based singer-songwriter is eight years into said career and shows no signs of stopping — with half a dozen albums to her name, fistfuls of glowing reviews, and an ever-growing international grassroots fan base. With hindsight, the craziest thing about her decision was she didn’t do it sooner.
It was a fortuitous beginning to an immensely satisfying musical adventure, one that has found her playing to listening room and festival audiences from coast to coast as well as in Canada and Europe.
