Bethia is a 19-year-old Singer/Songwriter from Reading. As a five-year-old, she dreamt of becoming a pop star whilst singing and dancing to Pop Princess in her living room. After all this time she is still pursuing this dream! As well as being a huge Pop music fan from a young age, she listened to a lot of Tracey Chapman, Eva Cassidy and Whitney Houston through her parent’s influence. Although, it is evident that her current musical influences are artists such as Zara Larsson, Sinead Harnett, Jorja Smith and Kehlani etc. Bethia started songwriting when she was 11 which she instantly fell in love with and has been developing ever since through different styles and genres. She has performed at many different events such as the Broad St Mall’s Christmas light Switch On in Reading and also alongside X Factor Finalist Danyl Johnson at the Pride of Reading Awards. In early February this year, she released her first acoustic EP “Hit of Heaven” with Producer Ryan Griffiths which includes four original songs and has proven to be very successful. She is currently working on new music with her full band that hugely influenced by Soul and R&B which she is excited to release soon!
