A concert workshop presentation of the musical Bad Apples (music and lyrics written by Rob Cairns and Beth) to be performed in Los Angeles, March 2015.
A live performance video is in the making. And new music coming soon!
So very happy about the movie, Laggies, using my song Night Light (co-written with Jess Furman). The movie stars Keira Knightley and Sam Rockwell. I think Sam is great. Kiera, too, but I’ve seen a lot of movies with Sam and he’s a favorite of mine.
Also happy to report that Party Dress (co-written with Lindsey Ray) was heard on the ABC show Mistresses.
The very popular Canadian show, Degrassi, will be using my song All These Things in their upcoming season 14, episode 14. You can hear the song on my new EP, Septagon (stream from my music page here at this website or find it on iTunes.). Thank you Degrassi!
Beth’s new EP, Septagon, (released on April 8) is available now at all the usual digital outlet stores. Beth and the band will play their EP release show on Saturday, April 26 at 9:30pm at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, CA. yay!
The International Songwriting Competition just chose its semi-finalists and Beth’s new song on the upcoming EP, “All These Things” was one of the semi-finalists. The contest has nearly 19,000 entries from over 100 countries and the semi-finalists make up the top 8%. Very happy and honored to be one of the 8%.
“Septagon delivers four rock-solid songs with poignant moods, celebrations of energy and complex themes both dark and light. Purely as a songwriter, she excels at weaving diverse thoughts into crashing emotional statements. As a performer she has a singular voice and gentle style of instrumentation that hints at a massive weight of intellectual substance. Her work has a balance to it, a “rightness” that aligns the various elements into cohesive relationships like natural gravity.”

Welcome to Club Abu, the biggest party in Baghdad and the premier location for Iraqi nightlife. You only need to answer the following question to gain entry: “Do you love me enough to torture for me?” Dress code is whatever you got dragged in wearing (or nothing at all). Freedom lovers only, please.
Upcoming workshop/backer’s performance in Los Angeles, January 2015.
Bad Apples is a new rock musical that follows three characters inspired by the three National Guard soldiers behind the atrocities at Abu Ghraib prison in 2003/2004. Jim Leonard has created a compelling, jarring, beautiful and heartbreaking story that asks how this tragedy came to be. Who were the victims? Who were the villains? Is sadism part of being human? Was Abu really an aberration brought on by a few “bad apples?”
