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

On Beth Nielsen Chapman's new release, "Uncovered" she rolls out a batch of premium songs she's written but never recorded that have already been hits or covers by other artists. Most were top ten hits, seven of which topped the charts at #1.

This record could have been called "Recovered" except that the idea for this collection sprung out of her digging up songs for her pending boxed set called "Box of Songs". The title, "Uncovered" was suggested by none other than Bob Harris. "Once I heard that name I knew exactly what this record needed to be." It's been a crazy few months pulling it together but the universe seems to have been cooperating beautifully.

Recorded in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and her own "Tree House" studio in Nashville, Beth Nielsen Chapman's new release "Uncovered" bursts open with a crystalline piano, which gives way into an infectious groove on "Simple Things", a song about the stuff that really matters in life, with backing vocals by Kim Carnes (She's Got Betty Davis Eyes).

In fact, "Uncovered" features a number of amazing guest artists including legendary guitarist Duane Eddy on "Shine On Me", a song Beth wrote with Waylon Jennings, which also features backing vocals by Waylon's widow, artist Jessie Colter-Jennings; Vince Gill duets with Beth on "Here We Are" a # 1 hit she and Vince wrote for Alabama; Darrell Scott sings and plays on "Maybe That's All It Takes" a stunning ballad about how to make love last, which was a hit for Don Williams; Pam Tillis & Lorrie Morgan sing on "Five Minutes" , Lorrie's first #1 hit; Amy Grant along with Ruth Trimble & Eilidh Patterson sing on the stand out track "Pray" written with, and featuring guitar instrumentalist extraordinaire Muriel Andersen; "Almost Home", a Mary Chapin Carpenter single from her greatest hits package "Party Doll", was written by Chapin, Beth and longtime collaborator Annie Roboff who also co-produces several tracks on this collection. "Almost Home" features the rollicking background vocals of "Wine Women & Song" artists Gretchen Peters, Suzy Bogguss and Matraca Berg, alongside Bekka Bramlett who also appears playing blistering tambourine and backing vocals with George Marinelli's electric guitar on "Meet Me Halfway", the bluesy deeply groovy track written by Beth, Bonnie Raitt and Annie Roboff for Bonnie's "Fundamental" release.

The Scottish sessions co-produced with Phil Cunningham, feature top grade musicians including Duncan Chisholm, John McCusker, James Mackintosh, Euan Burton, and Matheu Watson. Additional recording was done at Squiggle Studios in Harlech, Wales, legendary bassist and longtime sideman on Beth's UK tours, former Fairport Convention member Maartin Allcock plays on several tracks.

Chapman's prowess at writing in a wide range of styles shines through on this collection. From the infectious pop sensibilities of "This Kiss" (Faith Hill) and "Simple Things" (Jim Brickman) to the strains of bluegrass and country in "Strong Enough To Bend (#1 for Tanya Tucker) and "Nothin' I Can Do About It Now" (#1 for Willie Nelson), the true thread that runs through it all is a her great passion for the well written song. It is also clear that she has a whole lot of fun performing these songs, and has no trouble bringing them home and making them her own once again.

I have always enjoyed BNC's music and had several previous albums. Bought this in anticipation of a recent live concert. Should have loved the concert apart from an incompetent sound engineer who couldn't get the right balance between band, soloists etc, so have enjoyed listening to the music in the privacy of my own home.

If you like BNC this is another album where she is back in her "happy place" (one of her first albums while thoughtful, was written shortly after her husband died of cancer)

Format: Audio CD
Beth Nielsen Chapman has built an enviable reputation as one of America's most gifted songwriters writing material that has been covered by artists as diverse as Bette Midler, Emmylou Harris, Neil Diamond and Roberta Flack.

Now, on her latest album, she uncovers twelve of her beautifully crafted songs that she has never recorded before but which have been significant hits for other performers. The collection features an impressive array of recording luminaries who have lent their talents to make this album a celebration of true Americana and was recorded in Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Nashville.

The album opens with Beth's deft keyboard intro to the lovely, lilting "Simple Things" which was a hit for Jim Brickman with Kim Carnes providing backing vocals. "Sweet Love Shine" was co-written with the late, lamented, Waylon Jennings and his wife, Jessi Colter, contributes backing vocals while the track is underpinned by the distinctive sound of guitar legend Duane Eddy.

On "Almost Home", a hit record for Mary Chapin Carpenter, Beth is joined by Gretchen Peters, Suzy Bogguss and Matraca Berg on a compelling, piano led reading of the song. "Here We Are" was a #1 hit for Alabama that she wrote with Vince Gill who duets with her on this re-working which has some striking electric guitar in the mix. Lorrie Morgan hit the charts with "Five Minutes" and she joins Beth on this very catchy number.

"Pray" is a gorgeous song with an almost hymnal quality and Beth's ethereal voice, cello, harp and pipes convey a haunting quality that is complemented by the voices of Amy Grant, Ruth Trimble and Eilidh Patterson.

I love Beth Nielsen Chapman's music (consistently 5 star material), so it comes as a real disappointment that the sound on this CD is so poor. Poor in the sense that 'brick walling' compression has been aggressively applied throughout the disc, making it almost impossible to listen to. If nothing else, Beth's music needs a sensitive presentation (as per her previous CDs), but this release will have your teeth fillings falling out. Sorry Beth.

Beth is such a great song writer that it's hard to remember how many hits she has written for other people. Had the privilege of being at her performance at Celtic Connections in Glasgow when she sang most of these songs and told the stories of how and when they were written. A great album, full of fantastic songs, talented musicians and great singers with beautiful voices.

I could listen to this CD over and over. Instead of verbalising a prayer I played 'Pray' in church, which was very well received.
Anyone who likes thoughtful, beautiful songs would love this.

I was expecting something quite special from this album, but was disappointed. Although Beth has written all the tracks they have already been released by other artists, the versions they have produced have become the standard which then makes Beth's versions sound wrong. Sorry, a mediocre album from what has to be one of the best singer songwriters today.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 27 Jan. 2014
Format: Audio CD
The album title is very clever, playing on the likelihood that Beth recorded demo versions of these songs for others to record. Beth has never officially recorded any of these songs for her previous albums, and this provides her with an opportunity to do just that, although she has written or co-written so many songs that only a small selection are presented here.

Sticking with officially released recordings, the originals were by Jim Brickmann and Rebecca Lynn Howard (Simple things), Alabama (Here we are), Andy Griggs (Sweet love shine), Muriel Anderson (Pray), Don Williams (Maybe that's all it takes), Faith Hill (This kiss), Willie Nelson (Nothin' I can do about it now), Tanya Tucker (Strong enough to bend), Bonnie Raitt (Meet me halfway), Mindy McCreedy (One in a million), Lorrie Morgan (Five minutes) and Mary Chapin Carpenter (Almost home). Beth co-wrote most of these songs with other writers.

Sadly, the booklet does not contain any specific notes about each song, but Beth has recorded this album in America, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Of the songs, I was already familiar with some of them and Beth's own versions are generally mellower. I enjoy Beth's versions, and on first listen, I think I'll highlight Nothin' I can do about it now, one of the few songs here that Beth wrote by herself.

This is a wonderful album that reminds us what a fantastic songwriter and singer Beth is.
