Beth Hart scales back her touring


Singer songwriter, Beth Hart has told how she would love to stop touring for 9-months at a time- – so she can have a life.

The “Bang Bang Boom Boom”’ singer is known for her extensive touring, and has regularly spent up to nine months of the year on the road, mainly in Europe. While the thrill of touring will never leave her, and the fact that she still loves performing live, she also can’t ignore the other calls on her time.

Hart recently told the Spokesman-Review: “I’m finding that it’s getting in the way of me having a connection to the real world, and that’s the only place I can really write from.

“I also just want to take care of myself. I want to have a life with my husband, spend some time with friends and family, and enjoy my life, instead of it all being about touring.”

She’s wary of becoming trapped in an environment where it’ll become difficult to reconnect beyond the music industry.

“If you surround yourself with everybody who tells you how great you are, you’re never going to move – the art just dies,” she says.

“Surround yourself with people who point out where you need to stretch or where you’re hiding and they’re giving you that criticism. I think that’s just fantastic. As much as my ego doesn’t like it, that part of the artist that wants to grow loves it.”

Hart released her seventh album Better Than Home back in April and is currently doing what she does best, touring North America. She returns to Europe in November to perform at a sold-out show at London’s Union Chapel on December 14.
