Independent Americana/folk/blues singer-songwriter Beth Bombara proudly releases her third EP, "Raise Your Flag," with a special CD release show set for June 15 at Off Broadway with fellow St. Louis acts The Blind Eyes and Bruiser Queen. Recorded in St. Louis, "Raise Your Flag" features six new songs by Bombara as well as hand illustrated artwork by St. Louis artist Casey Miller.
"The DIY aspect of creating music is something I really value. I want my music to sound real, organic," says Bombara. "These songs were tracked in my house in St. Louis, and two blocks from my house at a neighbor's studio. My husband and band member Kit Hamon stepped up as our main recording engineer. I'm very excited to share these songs with everyone. It's affirming to see growth in your art, and I really feel that with this project."
A notable and frequent contributor to the St. Louis music community, Bombara was named Best Singer-Songwriter of 2012 by the Riverfront Times.
She has developed her signature sound over the past decade, drawing inspiration from not only her favorite rock, blues, and folk musicians but also from the places she’s lived in and toured through over the years, first as a member of Samantha Crain and the Midnight Shivers and then as a solo artist.
Having independently released two successful EPs and, most recently, a full-length album on vinyl, Bombara is poised and ready to share her songs and her stories with a larger audience. When not singing, stomping, sliding, and shredding with her own band, she cheerfully lends her talent to local groups Old Lights and Cassie Morgan + the Lonely Pine.
Join Beth Bombara along with The Blind Eyes and Bruiser Queen on June 15, 2013 at Off Broadway, sponsored by the I Went to a Show music blog. "Raise Your Flag" will be available for purchase at the show and following on iTunes, CD Baby and at St. Louis area independent record stores.
