Austin-based songwriter and guitarist Beth Lee‘s straightforward, sultry rasp determinedly cuts to the core on her new LP, Keep Your Mouth Shut. The deliciously wry humor sears through, because keeping tight-lipped is exactly what Lee is not about to do. It’s time to open up, speak out, and tell it like it is. She’s belting no-nonsense, country-fried rock ‘n’ soul piercing straight through the heart, and any ounce of heartache can take a back seat.
Beth Lee and The Breakups are celebrating their new music with an album release show tonight at One-2-One Bar, 1509 S. Lamar Blvd., Ste. 600. They start the evening off early at 7 p.m., followed by songwriter and blues guitarist Chris Duarte, who’s also having an album release show for his new self-produced LP. Duarte and his band play at 8 p.m. Check it all out.
