Betty Lee Black is a yellow rose, a girl, and a woman painted in hazy shades of pastels smeared by black mascara tainted teardrops. Ms. Black’s journey, told thru her songwriting, unfolds across 3 EPs’ all due out by the end of the year. At first innocent enough, the hands of time change this young woman from innocent to experienced giving her and her audience answers not always wanted.
Betty began her songwriting with just her and her electric bass, writing heartfelt melody and lyrics against a simple bass line. She still performs the same way, bass in hand with the addition of her band. Betty crates a mood and draws the listener in with relatable stories of love and loss.
From an early age, Betty earned the nickname ‘Tumbleweed’ due to her constant moving from town to town. Betty gained a great sense of how much people were alike everywhere and how important one’s roots can be. The eternal sadness Betty carries in her heart from her constantly having to say goodbye spills over into every note she gives life too.
Still without a solid home, Betty Black tumbles around from town to town spanning the great country of the United States…you never know when she could blow into your town to sing and play a bit.
