Rock & soul singer Bette Smith’s 2017 breakout album JETLAGGER received raves from NPR, American Songwriter, Billboard, MOJO, and a feature in the New York Times. Hal Horowitz wrote of her in American Songwriter, “…she’s the swaggering proof that there is nothing dated about soulful rock and roll sung with attitude, defiance, and a take-no-prisoners aesthetic.”

Following JETLAGGER with 2020’s THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE BETTE, she landed on legendary critic Jim DeRogatis’ (“Sound Opinions”) “Best Albums of 2020” list and was nominated “Blues Artist of the Year (Female)” by Living Blues magazine and best “Soul Blues Album” by Blues Blast magazine.

Touring now in support of her third studio album, GOODTHING, slated for release July 12th via Kartel Music Group, Bette spoke on the new album saying, "'Goodthing' is a project that is near to my heart. It's a personal album. Each song tells its own story and reflects elements of my life, but together, it forms a full, vivid picture that reveals many of my passions and struggles and successes. But my sincere hope is that the music and words speak to people in their own lives and that listeners can relate on a human level. Most importantly, I just want it to bring joy and comfort and entertainment to people across the board. I am incredibly proud of this album and excited to share it with the world."

The album’s thirteen new, original songs were recorded and produced in London by Grammy-winner Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, James Bay, Paulo Nutini, Sia) who attests, “Bette is the real deal. Her delivery is the truth and comes straight from the heart.”
