With Don’t Apologize, Beth Snapp has taken an enormous leap forward and landed safely, with her talent obvious and intact.
A collection of soothing and supple melodies, underscored by a bracing backing band, it offers astute observations about the challenges, expectations and ability to overcome obstacles -- either self-imposed or those that result from outside interference. It’s a personal tale gleaned from lessons learned, from a need to face those realities and cope with them accordingly. That astute awareness is part of her DNA. It’s earned her continued kudos from those who found themselves enticed by her unerringly accessible fusion of folk, bluegrass, roots and pure pop. “I feel like my career is just beginning,” Snapp suggests. “I’ve laid some groundwork, but now I’m at a jumping off point, and it’s time to jump.”
