Beth Justice - Lead Vocals

Beth Justice started singing in high school. She studied voice in college and has been fronting bands since 1985. Her husky voice will remind you of the styles of Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks and Sheryl Crowe. Every now and then, she has the tendency to walk out into the crowd while singing her song. She says, "Having fun while expressing the music with emotion and connecting with the audience is what I try to achieve."
