The best kept secret in music



(with Photo) Knee-Coal Beth has been flitting about the dark spaces of the city's scene for months, but she deserves higher-profile gigs like tonight's. The woman has a flat-out gorgeous voice, and her spare piano songs (which will be ably supported by bassist Jeremy Wilms and drummer Kevin Shea tonight) have a unique glow to them. Soulfoul and pretty is a hard-to-beat combo when it comes to songwriting.

"Knee-Coal Heats Things Up!"

Singer-songwriter Knee-Coal Beth's songs have a way of stradding both edgy and delicate. Tonight she pounds the piano and sings original pieces, accompanied by Jeremy Wilms and drummer Kevin Shea. - The Daily News


The pianist (that would be Knee-Coal) can create anything she wants, from atmospheric textures and Cat Power-ish chords to prancing jazz lines that leap into the air and
settle like dust on your thickened urban skin. Ask her to play "Blue Stars"
which moves breathtakingly from gorgeous balladry to shrill sermonizing and
back again." (King)

"The Best Band You Never Heard Of...Knee-Coal Beth"

(with a picture) The Lovely Lady with the unique name, Knee-Coal Beth is a local pianist who sings her own edgy, jazzy tunes. Backed by Kevin Shea on drums and Jeremy Wilms on bass, this soulful trio has been skirting in obscurity for a big, but wiht Knee-Coal's haunting song writing and their hand-working union, it won't be long before the band becomes a household name.

I am not on a label currently. I recently had a flirtation with Verve but subsequent demos proved I was too "alternative." I am currently exploring interested labels.


Feeling a bit camera shy


It is a detective film and at the ending is a twist. The villan always wins! There are several songs about murder, and songs about heartbreak. They tend to be autobiographical in the third person, thus the words "Knee-Coal Beth" figure into most lyrics.
