Arist Bio:
I’m Betsy, a single mother of two boys, Dexter (20) and Carson (12). Originally from Illinois, I’ve called Minnesota my home for the past 13 years. After relocating here, I began to explore my musical style and started performing locally with other collaborators. As bandmates came and went, I worked at honing my unique style, aiming to perform solo eventually. I ventured into songwriting in early 2014 and have a small collection of songs that I’m eager to record. In my spare time since moving to Minnesota, I’ve taken up kayaking, discovering numerous natural treasures along the river. These discoveries have inspired me to create visual art that complements the themes found in my songs.

This activity is part of Department of Public Transformation’s River Valley Ripple Artist Residency Program at The YES! House, made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
