Friday, November 21, 2014 -- BettySoo & Brian Kalinec

 

BettySoo

 

 Betty-Soo-Solo-72dpi-Color-0757-150x150   

BettySoo is a large talent in a small package. Her shows are ever-changing and entertaining - as much for what is said off the cuff between songs as for the songwriting and her breathtaking delivery. There's a little gospel, some straight-ahead folk, a bit of twang, a bit of pop, and maybe even a familiar oldie with a new twist. Always be ready for a surprise.

 

“BettySoo is one of the great singer-songwriters making a difference on American stages today … a clear-as-a-bell modern sound.”  --Yahoo! Music

“BettySoo’s voice is the perfect combination of strength, vulnerability and clarity. It is just perfect.”  --Americana UK

A native of Beaumont, Texas, Brian picked up the guitar at an early age and began to play dances, restaurants and clubs. Thus began a life spent crafting songs and nurturing songwriters. Brian's writing resonates with audiences, fellow songwriters, and music lovers alike.
