Beth Styles is an award winning composer/producer/artist, whose work has been celebrated in diverse houses of worship across the country and performed by some of the great artists and cantors of our time.
Beth has written an extensive catalogue of original work ranging from Contemporary and Traditional Spiritual Music, Jewish, Gospel, Jazz, R&B, Theater, Folk and Funk to Film Scoring and Children’s Music. Her most recent work has been focused in the realm of inspirational/spiritual music. With roots in a modern orthodox Jewish background, Beth’s soulful writing is a deep and natural expression of her artistry.
Beth produces artists across many genres with a special love for helping others realize their dreams. In addition to her prolifacy in writing and musical depth, she discovered early on a draw to the technical side of music creation. Today, as a skilled Protools engineer, Beth produces most projects from recording to mastering at her multimedia production studio, based in Stamford, CT. She has worked with beloved artists including Diana Ross and Ronnie Spector and is currently producing Neshama Carlebach’s brand new, about to be released CD entitled “Believe”.
As the music director and founder of the New World Chorus, Stamford’s 30-voice community interfaith choir, Beth continues to collaborate with diverse houses of worship, clergy and leadership to produce compelling annual multi-faith events throughout the year, including “A Time to be Grateful,” honoring Thanksgiving, “Season of Miracles,” a joyful celebration of Spring and “Street Angels”, where local singers join together in bringing the holiday spirit to the community. She is also the creator of the “Living Voice Project,” which sources meaningful programs of the arts for people living with a form of dementia such as Alzheimer’s.
Beth was the 2017 NewCAJE Emerging Artist winner, as well as one of the recipients of the 2016 “Shalshelet” award for new Jewish music.
