Bettysoo Grew up in Spring, TX. Moved to Austin to attend UT. Lived a pretty normal life, bought a house, worked a job, and got married. Then decided to become a singer…and by default, a songwriter.
Now with 4 solo albums, a solo EP, two duo covers albums, plenty of guest vocals on other great albums, and a slew of songwriting awards under her belt, BettySoo’s life looks pretty different from how it did nine years ago, when she was a newlywed in graduate school (she dropped out to be a musician).
Jaimee Harris is poised to become the next queen of Americana-Folk, a slightly edgier Emmylou Harris for the younger generation.
Her new album draws comparisons to Patty Griffin, Ryan Adams, and Kathleen Edwards â€“ all writers who know how to craft a heartbreakingly beautiful song with just enough grit to keep you enthralled. Harris writes about the basic human experience, in a way that is simple, poetic, and often painfully relatable.
