Aufgewachsen in der Nähe von Boston, von ihren älteren Geschwistern mit Janis Joplin und Neil Young infiziert, zog es Beth Wimmer mit 18 Jahren nach Süd-Kalifornien. Hier fand sie den perfekten Nährboden für ihre Inspiration. Unter der Anleitung von Roots-Rockers David Raven und Billy Watts (Keith Richards, Norah Jones. Dixie Chicks, Eric Burdon) feilte sie an ihrer Bühnenpräsenz und perfektionierte ihr Songwriting.

Beth schreibt mit viel Fingerspitzengefühl und Humor Songs über Menschen, das Leben, Träume und die Tücken der Liebe… Letztere zogen sie vor sieben Jahren dauerhaft in die Schweiz.

Mit ihrer warmen eindringlichen Stimme und dem Mix aus Blues/Folk und Americana gewann Beth die Herzen des Europäischen Publikums schnell für sich. Nach zwei veröffentlichen Alben in den USA, läutete “Ghosts and Men”, eine neue Ära ihres musikalischen Schaffens diesseits des grossen Teiches ein. Von Kritikern hoch gelobt, und im Radio gerne gespielt, fand man einige ihrer Songs unter anderem bei namhaften Song-Wettbewerben unter den Finalisten wieder.

Beth Wimmer grew up in the countryside near Boston USA running through woods, wading in creeks, fishing, and playing with dogs, cats, ducks and rabbits. Her brother and sisters sparked her love for rock and roll, infusing their house with sounds of The Who, Jethro Tull, Heart, Neil Young, Janis Joplin and Cat Stevens. "The Pretenders and Led Zeppelin were essential to my survival as a teenager," says Wimmer. Beth's folk-singing grandfather was her darling, and her poet-artist, single mother, still her heroine. At the age of 18, Beth ventured to southern California. There she studied songwriting and practiced her live show.

Wimmer released her first two fully-produced albums, 'Live Within Live Without' (2004) and 'Miracle Girl' (2008), with three in-demand Los Angeles musicians who had become friends and mentors for her: producer/drummer David Raven (Mojo Monkeys, Keith Richards, Norah Jones), bassist Taras Prodaniuk (Merle Haggard, Lucinda Williams) and guitarist Billy Watts (Eric Burdon, Bonnie Raitt). Raven co-produced and engineered Beth's records in his home-studio in Los Angeles, a 1925 French Gothic home which was originally a Catholic Rectory. Both 'Live Within Live Without' and 'Miracle Girl' were well-received, garnering praise in the US and abroad.
