ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hailed by AllMusic, Perez Hilton, and PopMatters as an "artist to watch," Beth Arentsen was raised on the shores of New Jersey but “grew up” in the East Village of New York City where she recently penned her debut solo album, Sap. Sharing intimate stories that tow the line between tragedy and triumphant, Sap is a collection of songs that draw upon Beth’s early childhood on the ocean and experiences living above the asphalt. With emotionally charged lyrics and a head-turning voice, Beth draws comparisons to Kate Bush and Alanis Morissette, with a commanding stage presence that is uniquely her own.

Beth moved to New York City to study experimental theater at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and to perform her music in Lower Manhattan's music halls. It was her love of songwriting that eventually led Beth to Austin’s SXSW. Armed with a demo and a smile, Beth caught the interest of a Chicago label, NoVo Records, which signed her to be the front woman of the [jazz-funk] band, P-1. P-1 released two albums (STEP through NoVo/Lightyear/WEA and POWER on Forever Soul/NoVo distributed through 3MD/RYKO/WMG) enjoyed commercial radio play and landed songs in film and television, including Fox Searchlight's "Trust the Man" and ABC's "Samantha Who."

Inspired by the success of P-1, Beth focused her energy into a more personal project. The end result is Sap, produced by Jimi Zhivago and recorded at The Magic Shop in NYC. Sap departs from the electro vibe of P-1 in favor of a more stripped-down telling of Beth’s tales.

Beth regularly performs in New York City at Joe's Pub and The Living Room and in Asbury Park, NJ at The Saint and Twisted Tree. Other national venues include: The Metro (Chicago), Eisenhower Park Summer Stage (Long Island, NY) as well as many festivals, colleges, benefits and product launches including, Scion. She has also appeared live on commercial and satellite radio and morning television.

An amazing album!
Beth Arentsen is a brilliantly gifted artist and songwriter! "SAP" seeps into your skin and takes hold of your heart. "Used to Dream" is incredible...

Beth Arentsen CD Release Party for SAP in Chicago totally rocked!
Just attended the Beth Arentsen CD release party for SAP in Chicago to a standing room only crowd who didn't want Beth to leave the stage after singing her heart out. This project has a personal touch that makes Beth roar with energy. Watching her perform and hitting notes with her well trained voice really shows how talented Beth is. I am quite impressed and my thoughts were not wrong as her audience proceeded to give Beth an standing ovation that lasted for good five minutes last night. When you listen to this new project of Beth's, you feel her storytelling come alive. I wish you the best Beth, you have hit a new level in your career and congratulations with this winner! You will want this release in your collection so go ahead order yours now. A true performer making her mark and soon to be in the mainstream and well deserved might I add!

Get ready music fans this girl sizzles!
I like to tell everyone who likes a gal singer who writes her own music, plays the piano and can hold a tune you come to the right place. Beth is in the league with other famous singer/songwriters and she will make an impression on you. Do you tour throughout the United States or just Chicago New York City and South Beach? It's worth a trip to hear Beth. VSP is behind you girl Beth... make it big you earned it!

Beth Arentsen Sap a winner!
Beth brings us her solo project and I am truly impressed. She ranks right up with popular songwriters/singers of today. I like her special style here, most relaxing, gentle yet full of POWER!

Multi talented Beth Arentsen plays the piano, writes music, and one heck of a singer. Beth's bound to hit mainstream between her new solo release, along with her new dance grooved tunes of P-1 which Beth's the lead singer. You go girl!
