Biography

Born in Harlingen, Texas, smack in the middle of a family of five children, to an Air Force Major and a registered nurse, Beth grew up all over the place – a self-described “geographical mutt.” Her family finally settled in Alabama in 1969 when Beth was just going into the ninth grade, moving there from Munich, Germany. Crossing back over the ocean with her came her first ... Read more in Amazon's Beth Nielsen Chapman Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

When it comes to pure and simple songwriting, few can rival Beth Nielsen Chapman, and Lookis another powerful addition to her cannon. So far, her work has been covered successfully by Faith Hill, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt and myriad others and her artist peers will surely find much to feed upon here. In a sense, it's a concept album, the concept being "love" in all its forms. Having recently recovered from breast cancer, Chapman is clearly ready to embrace humanity in all its flawed beauty. Thus we have tales of enduring love, love passed by, romantic love, destructive love, redemptive love and love for the dearly departed, all of them delivered with impressive warmth and charm. Importantly, they're all also performed deadly straight--thankfully, there are no vocal pyrotechnics to divert one's attention from the songs. And what songs they are, Chapman creating a smooth blend of country, pop, jazz and soft soul that's varied in style, tone and mood yet consistent in its excellence. Arguably, she's at her best when indulging her love for show tunes, as she does with the title track and the quiet, exotic "The Reason". --Dominic Wills

5.0 out of 5 stars The best just got better 21 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Beth Nielsen Chapman is simply the best singer songwriter in the world today, just buy this CD and find out for yourself. All the songs are superb and Beth's voice pure and beautiful. I saw her live at the Arches, Glasgow in December 2002, she's a class act with a warm and friendly personality too. This is an album you will never regret buying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed bag - from the bland to the sublime 8 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
As a huge BNC fan, I find this fifth album a bit of a mixed bag. Happily, Beth's voice is returning to its former glory after dipping a bit in Deeper Still (understandably given her health - but then the sheer musicality of some of the songs on DS more than made up for it). But whereas each of the previous four albums had unique musical identities, this one doesn't. If I had to sum it up, I'd say it seems to be a collection of all the songs they couldn't squeeze onto the first four, plus a few others.
One of BNC's qualities I most admire is how her songs and arrangements never show all the cards in the first verse/chorus: you always have to listen to the entire song; either for the lyrics, the descants, the musical embellishments, etc. Unfortunately a lot of songs on this album don't do this: the song never develops. Bland. I skipped only 2 songs across all the previous four albums; I regularly skip 4 songs on this album alone.
But then this album also contains some amazing songs that I just wouldn't be without. "Look" is one of her best Perry Como jazz-inspired songs - warm, slow and joyous. "The Reason" (Deeper Still style - very modal) is just fantastic, musically interesting and emotionally original. And "I Find your Love" is just sheer Beth Nielsen beauty (Sand and Water style).
If you're new to BNC, buy one of the first four albums first.
If you're a BNC fan - well I would buy this CD for just one of the three songs I mentioned, so there are three reasons I'd buy it - I'm sure there'll be at least one reason why you'll want to buy it too.

Her voice is amazing, nearly as deep as the lyrics ! It's an invitation to travel in the world of a sensitve soul, where hearts are broken, communication is not always easy but love is everywhere. One can not stay indifferent to this music (my humble opinion)

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 5 Dec 2013
By Le Souk
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had known about Beth Neilsen Chapman for a few years and liked her lovely songs but it was recently that I brought this CD as after listening to her lyrics she has an empathy with the recently bereaved (my husband passed on 2nd October 2013 aged 54 years), & I am so glad I purchased the CD because her songs are helping me with the grieving process. I also chose the track "I Find Your Love" as my goodbye to my husband at his funeral. This CD has a variety of happy song too, not all sad, and her voice is just sublime & comforting. I have gone onto buy 2 other CD's from her & I am extremely happy with all the purchases.
