Sweet and gentle west coast writer, Beth Robinson, blends her skillful acoustic guitar with a strong, clear voice on songs chronicling personal insights, often about members of the opposite sex. This life feels rich and carefully explored; one that listeners will enjoy revisiting. Her songs are intensely personal yet accessible, her voice has a lush velvety quality to it, and her style is vulnerable and unpretentious. Her first album of all original tunes, called "Heart of a Hunter" is a stylish collection of moods and grooves that take you along on an intimate journey. It was produced and arranged by Doug Blumer (formerly of the Westerleys). Doug brings his own heart warming guitar licks and vocal harmonies, as well as a pure country/rock sensibility, which makes for a rich mix of instrumentation behind Beth's moving and heart-felt vocals and lyrics.

Music Background I was born and raised in NYC. I went to Music & Art Highschool up in Harlem, next to NYU & Columbia. Just in time for all the war protesting and demonstrations against the war in Vietnam. I was a true, card carrying hippy and I missed Woodstock by only a few years. I played guitar and sang and wrote folk songs with friends in the village but it was more of a healing self expression -- very personal -- too tender to share with the general public. I got my first and ONLY real guitar as a graduation gift from Manny's music store on West 47th Street. It was a '65 Gibson Hummingbird. It was a lifeline, my shy connection to the world. But as I got more involved in the job market and making money, and just making it in this world, I ran out of time and the need for music. I put it aside, moved to California, married, developed a career, watched the wheels of life grind inevitably forward and away from my past. Until I came to a crossroads right here in the middle of my life. I had to decide which road would lead me back to who I really wanted to be. The Hummingbird was still there, and all of it's healing powers. And the songs were still there just waiting to be sung.
Music Skills All kinds of guitar lessons from classical to folk, but most notably, two excrutiatingly intense years of music theory with the bay area treasure Nina Gerber. I'm still recovering from that experience.
