A few years back, I did (as far as I know) a very unique episode of "Mornings at McFarlanes'" in which I played noting but unique versions and original songs from musicians in and around Madison that celebrated the Holiday Season. I was amazed at the quality and diversity of our local music scene (we forget how blessed we are to live in this part of the country). One of the artists that I featured on that show is my guest in this episode. She represents to me the epitome of what an Indy recording artist is and should be. Proud, intelligent, sensitive, and driven by a love and a passion for her Art as well as developing that passion in others. In this episode, we share some of Beth Kille's Christmas tunes off of her Undercover Holidays CD (recorded with the Kerosene Kites), as well as talk about the stories behind these songs, her career in music, and the special work she does with younger artists through her Rock and Roll Camp.
Beth Kille (pronounced Kill-ee) is a 25-time Madison Area Music Association (MAMA) award winning artist from Madison, WI who has been cranking out Americana-Rock tunes since 2000. She was recognized in 2011 when she received Artist of the Year honors at the Madison Area Music Awards and was twice nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year in 2017 and 2018 by the Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI).
