New Brooklyn based folk singer-songwriter Beth Henderson has unveiled her debut
Written and performed by Beth Henderson with production and instrumentation by
Julian Giamo, “Wild One” is an acoustic confession of love and surrender during the
age of coronavirus, and a pensive exploration of what embracing fear can lead to.
“I wrote ‘Wild One’ sitting on a porch in upstate New York on my 30th birthday,
waiting on my COVID lover to return with wood for our fire. We had met during the
early stages of quarantine when the stillness of the city gave us all the time in the
world to discover each other,” Henderson recalls. “But by mid-June, the whispers of
our former lives were starting and our differences were beginning to show. Instead of
calling it, then and there on that porch upstate, I asked what is love with no
expectation? What does it mean to meet your lover where they stand, differences and
all, to surrender control and to face the wild?”
Beth Henderson is a folk Americana singer/songwriter from Brooklyn, New York. With
a sound that flips easily between grounded assuredness and crystalline vulnerability
(reminiscent of Laura Marling, Liza Anne, and Gillian Welch), Beth writes songs of loss,
love, and relationships that just don’t quite work.
Born in Delaware, Beth first found her way to music through theater and began to
perform once moving to New York City, at venues including Rockwood Music Hall, The
Wolfhound, and Gold Sounds.
Beth Henderson is expected to release more singles in the coming months, with a
debut E.P. "Questions" slated for early 2021.
