Bio

Bethany Barr Phillips has been singing and writing since the age of 17. Leading worship and performing originals, she travels all over the country every opportunity she gets to share the message of the love & hope that is found in jesus Christ alone.
In 2000, she crossed paths with Morgan Cryar, and they made a full- length record. It was entitled Stained White and soon after, she had opportunities to open for artists such as Andrew Peterson and Bebo Norman as well as travel internationally to play music.

In January of 2006, Bethany was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer after miscarrying her first child. After six months of chemotherapy, she was cancer free and is now a mother to three year old, Isaiah Jewel.

The record Roots Run Deep was born out of this trial. “So that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” Isa 61:3c. This verse is where God showed His plan to her – He will always be glorified. “What a God I serve, that He would choose me to glorify Him!” she says joyfully. “I knew that if I was gonna make it out alive, I had to be rooted in him. Cancer was not a joy in any way, but I choose to look at it as a journey that took me to a new place in my relationship with Jesus, a place where I had to be real and I’m not looking back.

The now Tuscaloosa, Alabama, native experienced the devastating F4 tornado as she watched it pass her home in April of 2011. After praying with her band about how to move forward and serve the people who had been affected, she went home and penned the song Show Love. Bethany
introduced Show Love to the world during her set opening up for the David Crowder Band at Alanta Fest 2011. After seeing the response, she knew it had to be tracked. The Show Love EP will release late September of 2011 and it’s swingy, encouraging beat will remind you with every note that we are all here, to show love.

“Jesus calls us directly in His word to love each other. He even precedes this with ‘by this all men will know...’ The Lord brought this to my mind as I prayed about this tragedy and how to I was supposed to be apart of the recovery efforts,” Bethany says about the EP. “He’s called us to love each other, and that alone will set us apart; not what church we go to, or what we shout from the rooftops, love. Through His love, we can all come together and all can begin to not only hear the Gospel, but see it moving as well. That’s what Show Love is all about.”

Other songs include her latest worship tracks Your Ways and Satisfied, as well as the well-known Kathryn Scott tune Hungry.

“This EP has been a small journey in itself, coming from a place of hope and restoration, wanting to remind everyone of all walks that there is one that loved far greater that we could imagine. May we all remember to Show Love in the coming days as we remember His ways are Higher!” Bethany smiles.
