Bette Smith Bets Big
December 5, 2017•24 min
With her 7-piece band in tow, Bette Smith delivers a performance as big as her ambitions. Bette always wanted to be a singer, but her dad – a church choir director - disapproved of singing secular music. After he died, Bette decided to go for it and took every opportunity she could to sing. Bette found fans in Ray Charles shortly before he died, and in Jimbo Mathus of Squirrel Nut Zippers who produced her debut album Jetlagger.
