Jazz vocalist Beth Duncan just completed her 10th Anniversary appearance at the Sacramento Music Festival over the Memorial Day Weekend. Beth appears at various venues and private events throughout the year in Northern California.

Her lifelong love affair with jazz has taken her on a powerful journey. “As a little kid, my older brother loved jazz. He painted his room black, had bongos, and I would hear Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, Stan Getz, and Mel Tormé wafting out of his room,” she says laughing. “That music from down the hall led me to the path I am meant to be on.”

Beth recently won top honors in the 12th annual Independent Music Awards (IMA) for the title track off her new CD: Comes The Fall. Tracks from the album have been played across the country and worldwide including stations in Canada, Japan, Australia, and The Netherlands with her musical talents receiving stellar reviews.
