Bethany Conner

Bethany is a Vermont singer/songwriter whose music captures some of the timeless concepts surrounding love and loss through the eyes of a young adult. She joined the Vermont music scene in 2014. Her passion for performing means you’re as likely to see her playing at a Coffee House or local bar as you are at a benefit, a fair, or a grocery store.

Bethany recorded her first EP, "I'll Tell You" in 2015. The songs are straight acoustic guitar and vocals, all completed in one take. Bethany hoped to create an intimate and unprocessed feeling to the songs with these raw recordings. She is known for her soulful, fluttering melodies that have often been compared to Joni Mitchell.

Bethany finished recording her second EP, "City Full of Big Kids," in September of 2019. The album explores many of the exciting yet terrifying aspects of life when moving into adulthood. A recent Seven Days review of the EP describes it as, "exuding romantic optimism...lyrics [that] evoke "Fifteen"-era Taylor Swift, plainly describing scenarios that are simultaneously deeply personal and broadly relatable...her music is a record of one individual's experience of the world, told from the valuable perspective of a young woman in the 21st century."

Bethany’s talents are being recognized across Vermont. She has been featured on WCAX’s  “The :30”, Carrie Henry’s "Local Spotlight" on 104.7 The Point FM,  Sean Casey’s "Measure for Measure” as well as being featured in a few documentaries.

As a teenager, Bethany was the 2015 Grand Champion of “Vermont Has Talent”, as well as a Finalist in the 2014 Advance Music Singer/Songwriter Contest.
