Bette Smith at Soiled Dove Underground:

September 16, 2021

Wild rock & soul singer Bette Smith traces elements of her life-affirming new album “The Good, The Bad & The Bette” to her childhood in rough Brooklyn, NY. Musically, it connects to the gospel music she heard in church and the soul music on the corners. This injection of soul and gospel into rock & roll powered a breakout in 2017’s “Jetlagger,” which received raves from NPR, Paste, American Songwriter, Billboard, MOJO, and a feature in the New York Times. Now, “The Good, The Bad & The Bette” on Ruf Records, is garnering equal praise with All Things Considered calling it “A stompin’ good time!” and landing on legendary critic Jim DeRogatis’ (Sound Opinions) “Best Albums of 2020” list. Most recently, Living Blues Magazine has nominated Bette for “Blues Artist of the Year (Female)” 2021.
