When artists Beth Whitney and Bradford Loomis began writing together, they had no idea their casual co-writing experiment would blossom into the much anticipated album The Banner Days (releasing August 23rd on MTS Records). That first night, they wrote “My Beloved” in two hours. And after a few more writing sessions, it was clear to both, that these songs merited a bold decision.
This week Laurie Beth is interviewed about her new book, "The Contessa Chronicles". While this is Laurie's latest book to be released, it is one that she has carried in her heart for many years. It springs from pondering the many scriptures that don’t resonate with modern times and understanding. From questions that are raised and then left unanswered. As a nun once asked in Berkeley, “Is God really just an old man, a young man, and a bird?” Why are women so easily erased and condemned in scripture? Why are the Wisdom passages so overlooked? Why is the Holy Spirit, presented as a feminine noun in Hebrew, so quickly reassigned a new gender in subsequent translations, leading to a male dominated culture in religion that belies common sense, as well as demographics?
Meanwhile, where’s the fun? The joy? The vibrancy that exists in life and yet seems almost non existent in the stories we are told about God?
Ultimately, Laurie Beth has come to believe two major things. One is that the Bible is a Love Story, largely of unrequited love. Two. That Jesus was a family man in the very largest sense. He spoke constantly about the love he had for his father. He called us his brothers and sisters. With his dying breath he asked that his mother be loved and cared for after he was gone. He invited us to come home with him, and feast at the banquet table. He said he would send the Holy Spirit to finish the work he started.
And even in Revelations, “The Spirit and the Bride say ‘Come.’” The very real possibility of a wedding exists, even though Armageddon has gotten a lot more air time.
And so we present to you, The Contessa Chronicles. A new imagining of how it might have been, and maybe even, really is, if we are open to tasting some new wine, and are willing to saddle up our own horses for the ride.

Our guest for hour 2 : Beth Clay
Ms. Clay is a health freedom advocate and former Senior Professional Staff Member who lead the health
care oversight team on the House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform and Oversight

from her work both in the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Alternative Medicine and subsequently

Beth Patella is our featured artist in this episode. Working on her 2nd Solo album after coming back from tragedy in 2004. We'll find out more about what's in the works for that project and hear some cuts from her 2013 album "Coming Home" the album tells the story of her coming back to music, songwriting and her own kind voice after leaving music performing in 2004.
Beth Patella has been performing, writing and singing for over fifteen years. Inspired and influenced by her parents’ taste in music, she grew up on show tunes and later studied classical singing in college, which she continues to study today. Ten years ago, Beth avidly wrote and performed her own folk/rock songs throughout Connecticut and New York, receiving very high praise from her audiences. Very tragically, her drummer, who was the love of her life, committed suicide. Devastated and heartbroken, Beth disappeared from the songwriting scene for nearly seven years. The tragedy overwhelmed her, and she literally lost her singing voice and the ability to sing her own songs .However, Beth’s love for performing and collaborating with other musicians was the driving force that led her to bring her own talent as a singer/songwriter back to the forefront of her performance life. She decided to give her passion for songwriting a second chance. So, within the past two years, Beth has been performing on the east coast and working on her follow up to her solo album "Coming Home"
On this show we'll discuss songwriting, the healing power of music, music therapy, and Beth's ambitious plans for the future. Host Mitch Ruth may even get to ask the pressing question, "If we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway, why do we always seem to lose all our guitar picks right before we go on stage?"
