Beth Bombara “Space Junk” – Zooming in from the Outer Limits

Missouri based Beth Bombara has spent much of her adulthood on the road, carving out her own mix of modern folk and electrified roots-rock. She’s been a solo artist, a bandleader, and an occasional side musician for other artists. “I try to write without any predetermined ideas attached to genre, and just create. It took me a while to stop worrying about what box I fit into,” she admits.  ‘Space Junk‘ is quite solidly in the garage-rock-reverb-heavy-roots-influenced box – one of our favourite genres.

The songwriter’s hard work has paid dividends, and she’s currently in the midst of a “52 Songs” project, writing a song a week and delivering them exclusively to patrons on Patreon. From Aimee Mann’s quirky indie-folk to Neil Young’s heartland rock, she sources inspiration from iconic sources, while slowly stitching together her own quilt of sounds.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
