NEW MUSIC: Beth Brown ‘Easy’

Australian born indie-pop songstress Beth Brown is the first Australian female to sign to the Gretsch Guitar USA family, captivating international audiences with her earthy and infectiously joyful tunes, trailblazing pathways to the U.S.

Her debut EP “Dream Coat” will be released in 2017, leading with single “Easy”  followed by an Australian Tour in January. Partnering with highly celebrated U.S. producer Brad Jones, Brown joins a list of critically acclaimed Australian Artists including Missy Higgins and Butterfly Boucher.
