Listening to the smooth and soulful sounds of Bethel Solomon is like comfort food for the mind – a unique sound experience that relaxes you through it’s consistent and hypnotic grooves.
Singer/ Songwriter Bethel is a recent Los Angeles transplant hailing from Maryland. She attributes her art and most of what she’s learnt from her Ethiopian father and Eritrean mother.
‘I was really stressed with all the new responsibilities at work and the song “Relax” is me singing it to a friend but I am really talking to myself. It’s a reminder that life is life, it’s hard but the way I come out through difficulty is what shapes me.
“Loves Overture” is my ode to a guy that I hoped would become something more. The word Overture means ” an introduction to something more substantial”. I moved here (Los Angeles) with this crazy notion he would miss me so much he would come and see me, he has yet to visit me in the year I have lived here. ‘
Bethel is currently working on ‘B Is For Bethel’, her forthcoming EP which will be released in spring 2016. To learn more visit Bsolomonsangs.com
