“A purple evening of music with Mary Beth”
With a song in her heart and purple ink in her pen, Mary Beth writes about the reality of life’s ups and downs with a wink and mischievous smile. You’ve leave happy and humming.
Mary Beth Koplin, BA is a singer-songwriter from New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Her passion is music and her songs will inspire and delight you. As a child in Baltimore, MD, she played the family’s old Baldwin spinet and sang harmony while her mother sang the lead from pop music and show tunes. Song after song grew into a lifestyle that propelled Mary Beth to graduate from Regents College, Albany, New York with a degree in music performance. While raising a family she was the owner of a successful piano teaching studio where her greatest achievement was to pass on the love of music to her students!
She’s influenced by Carole King, Diana Krall, Motown, and the Beatles…but also twenty-one pilots! So, her music is multi-genre, from Pop/Rock to Jazz Balads, from Country to Latin. Being a trained pianist gives her fluency with many styles.
But it’s songwriting that gives her creative expressions the deepest satisfaction. She writes from the potent moments of her life, and finds delight in the simplest, profound experience.
Mary Beth’s fans find a place for themselves in her music. As she says, “I think that the best music takes a personal experience and makes it universal. It’s not me performing, but all of us sharing life together, through the songs. “
For a fun and deeply emotional experience, listen to some of her songs on ITunes and Spotify. Marybethmuse.com
