“Jasmine’s songs ranged through a string of rhythms and meters that spoke honestly, with a sense of the poetic.” - Eric Pozza, Canberra Jazz
“Her lyrics are authentic and her storytelling is sincere.” - Markos Papadatos, Suite 101
BIOGRAPHY (60 words)
Jasmine Beth plays original country songs about things of all kinds–from problem gamblers, to bizarre pre-nuptial agreements, to Donald Trump's wall. When borders are open, she spends a lot of time on the road, touring Australia and the UK every year. Audiences enjoy her relaxed stage presence, stripped back guitar style, warm vocals—and reasonably frequent jokes.
