Beth in the Orange Mode

Beth Farmer is a Gemini from Hyden, KY residing in Buffalo, New York and her passion is music and dance performance—being a positive inspiration to others. How long have you been expressing your artistic side? Beth replies, “Not including my days as a toddler standing on a coffee table, hair brush in hand, while looking into an oversized mirror, singing songs I’d learned in Church, or seen on the latest episode of Soul Train. I’ve been expressing my artistic side since I was 9 years old, through music, art, creative writing, and dance. Remembering every song to “The Little Mermaid” soundtrack that I received on my 9th birthday in only two days, is how my Mother describes the beginning of my musical journey.”

Do you have any tattoos and do they have a special meaning? Beth replies, “I currently have one tattoo. It is a tribal sign marked with a rose. It expresses my Native American heritage and June, the month I was born (a rose symbolizes the month of June) I plan on getting more, though.” Now that is nice to hear someone who gets tattoo’s with real significance meaning. Do you know what other tattoos you will get and the reason behind it? Beth replies, “Something lyrical, more than likely related to music and/or dance. Tattoos are permanent, so I want them to have a very personal and special meaning.”You are a lovely and talented young lady; I am sure all the guys out in the Orangeverse would like to know are you single. Beth replies, no I am currently engaged to Chuckie Campbell, a teacher, musician, and a writer. He’s, currently involved in numerous musical projects, so you’ll be hearing even more about him in the future, in addition to his accomplishments, to date.” Way to go Chuckie, he just did an article in the March Editon of Orange Mode Magazine. His story and talent is a true inspiration. You both are lucky to have each other!Do you have any children? Beth replies, “No, but when I do, I just hope to be blessed with a beautiful healthy baby boy, or girl.

What would you say your best attribute is? Beth replies, “It’s a toss-up between my eyes, smile, and hair.” I just loved your music clip, it has a Country but pop sound to it, what inspired you to write it? She responds, “I’m inspired by life experiences and emotions, love, loss, joy, pain, relationships, etc.” How would you describe your musical sound? Beth replies, “I love all music!!! But, my musical sound can be described as Country-Alternative/Pop, with a whole lot of soul.” Name one of your songs on your Album and what inspired you to write it. The song City Boy was written in about 20 minutes. It was a freestyle that turned into a hometown favorite. The inspiration for the song is pretty obvious. Hahaha. I’m a southern girl who crossed paths with a City Boy. It’s just that simple.” Can you boogie? Beth replies, “Yes, Hip-Hop, Contemporary, and Salsa.” You are a superstar for sure. What are some clubs you would recommend from your city? What would you recommend someone who visits your city check out? Beth replies, “For live music, Nietzsche’s, Elmwood Lounge, Pearl Street Brewery, and Mohawk Place. To dance the night away, Chippewa Street has an array of bars to satisfy your booty shakin’ needs, including Bottoms Up, Pure, and The Purple Monkey.”

Do you work out or go to the gym? Beth replies, “I have a gym membership where I tend to be more active during the spring, and summer months. I’m an energetic person, “on the go” person most of the time.” That keeps me in pretty good shape. We can tell, keep up the great job. Do you drink and if so what is your favorite drink? Beth replies, “Hoegarden, Blue Moon, PBR, and Michelob Ultra are my favorite beers—one for each mood! Lol. Red wine, specifically Cabernet, has recently become my drink of choice.” Again you are a Superstar Diva, one beer for each mood now that is just hotness! Do you have any musical or other positive influences in your life, what inspires you? Beth replies, “I’m inspired by music, other artists, people in general, and the fear that I won’t be blessed with enough time to share all of the love I have in my heart.” What is your favorite color? Beth replies, “RED.” What is your favorite flower? Beth replies, “Rose.” What is your favorite TV show or Movies? Beth replies, “TV: Law and Order SVU, Dexter, Ancient Aliens, Judge Mathis, Ellen, and just about anything on A&E. I love 80’s movies, classic horror flicks, and I’m a sucker for romantic comedies. Educational and inspirational documentaries are always enticing to me, as well.” Do you have any other hobbies or special talents? Beth replies, “Basketball, dancing, writing, and photography.” Can I say Superstar! “Beth smiles.” Do you have a favorite designer for clothing, jewelry that type of stuff? Beth replies, “I’m not big on brands. I’ll pay full price from a pair of jeans, work clothes, or running shoes, but everything else can come from just about anywhere. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry, but when I do, I prefer my guitar pick earrings, leather bracelets, or anything turquoise or black.” DIVA Love it!

While pursuing your dream, what do you do to pay the bills? Beth replies, “I am a full time Account Specialist in the Mortgage industry.” In your everyday life where can you be seen at you know (school, supermarkets) you know what I mean? Beth replies, “Wegmans is where I shop for food. They have a lavish inventory of fresh sushi, daily!” What is some of your contact information for our readers so they can get a hold of you?

Is there anything else you would like to share with the Orangeverse? Beth replies “My debut EP “Venus in the Morning Sky” was officially release in October of 2011. The music is downloadable on iTunes, CD Baby, Band camp, among other online retailers! I will be shooting a music video this summer of a featured track off of the EP, title, “October Rainy Night.” Keep your eyes and ears open!”

“I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts, like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart and my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water.”—Ray Charles
