Beth Thornley

Beth Thornley is a Birmingham, Alabama-born, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter who writes contemplative Beatle-esque pop with an engaging warmth and winsome sense of melody that recalls such master craftspeople as Squeeze’s Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, Elvis Costello, and Carole King. With her airy, plaintive voice as the through-line, Thornley manages to shape-shift over the course of her five independently released projects. Thornley has three full-length albums (Beth Thornley, 2003; My Glass Eye, 2006; and Wash U Clean, 2010), and two EPs (Septagon, 2014; and All That Longing, Sept. 2015). Septagon includes the song Last To Fall which was co-written with Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket) and also appears as a bonus track on Toad’s 2013 album, New Constellation, as well as their 2015 EP Architect of the Ruin. Beth’s most recent release, All That Longing, is a 4 song EP of modern and traditional folk rock and Americana. Her music has been heard in the films Magic Mike (directed by Steven Soderbergh), Girl In Progress (starring Eva Mendez), Laggies (staring Keira Knightley and Sam Rockwell) and in several TV shows including The Client List, Mistresses, Royal Pains, Suburgatory, and Friday Night Lights. She has been featured in national publications such as Keyboard Magazine, Paste, and American Songwriter. In 2012, Beth and Rob Cairns co-wrote the music and lyrics for the original rock musical, Bad Apples (premiering in Los Angeles with Circle X Theatre), which earned the pair nominations for “Best Original Score” by the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle, LA Weekly, and L.A. Stage Alliance, winning awards from the latter two. Beth and her band play in Los Angeles and she continues to write and record.
