Americana-inspired singer songwriter Bethel Steele has traveled from Portland, Maine to Austin, Texas slinging songs, sharing stories, smiles and hugs with listeners. Bethel was born and raised in upstate New York and now resides in Fort Collins, CO. While exploring the intrinsic beauty in whiskey-soaked one night stands, the stories of thrill-seekers and the unrelenting passage of time, Steele’s songs will pick you up, set you to soar, and deliver you safely back to your seat.
Steele's songwriting has been showcased at national and local festivals. Bethel is a two-time Kerrville New Folk Finalist (Texas, 2013 & 2016), a Wildflower! Singer-Songwriter Competition Winner (Texas, 2016), a Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriter Showcase Finalist (2016) and has performed at Bohemian Nights at New West Fest and FoCoMX, Fort Collins' own music festivals.
Steele’s newest release is an EP called "Shadows and Light." Kelly Walker, Folk DJ of the Sundilla Radio Hour (WKCC, WITH), says this of the new project: "Bethel draws the listener in with songs that are clearly intensely personal, but reveal themselves to be true for us all. You cannot help but be moved and perhaps changed a little for the better in listening to them."
