Founded in 2016, BetyLJoos is fronted by vocalist Linda Dolan, who also goes by BetyLJoos on stage. "The name was given to me in a bar while I was collecting the cover charge for my friend's band." Betyl explains about how she got the name. "I was wearing a striped shirt and the people near me didn't know my name but kept buying me drinks all night. Eventually they told me they were calling me Beetle Juice because of my shirt. So I changed the spelling, played with the pronunciation a bit, and it stuck" (You can pronounce it either way Bay-tyl-juice or Betty L Juice, both are fine) Having played in many bands that eventually went their separate ways, Betyl decided to sit down and record her own music. Collaborating with friends as she goes along, BetyLJoos is a mix of classic rock, grunge, and metal influences. She enjoys the classic metal & rock bands from the 70s, the catchy pop-rock bands of the 80s, grunge from the 90s, and some "screamo" as well. All of which have influenced her writing in their own way. "I'm not trying to be 'now', or other people. I'm just trying to write what I like, hoping someone else out there will like it too"
