来自美国洛杉矶的才女Beth Thornley在三月发行了她的第三张专辑《Wash U Clean》，她的音乐被Keyboard Magazine称作为“smart pop”旋律多以钢琴为主线，类似Carole King, The Kinks, The Beatles and David Bowie的混合体，但又有着自己独特时尚的风格。她的许多作品经常在电视剧中作为插曲播出，如Scrubs, The Hills, Everwood, Jack and Bobby, Life, Newport Harbor and Friday Night Lights， 并在电影 "The Perfect Man" (Hillary Duff movie), "Play the Game" (Andy Griffith and Doris Roberts) 和 "Life with Fiona"也有播出。到目前为止她已有两首歌曲在全美音乐创作大赛中排名前十。
"It takes real talent to create music that is hip, yet melodic; accessible, yet not forced; and catchy yet not catchy to the point that you don’t want to listen after five spins. Piano songstress Beth Thornley has done this on her third album, Wash U Clean, a bouncy collection of pop tunes that are as infectious as any piano-driven ditties you’ve ever heard. Thornley herself is apparently amazed at the variation between the artists she is compared to, but that’s because that variation is genuinely as wide as the Grand Canyon – even from track to track. That’s just one of the many reasons to like this terrific set of music, and it’s a bonus that you’ll feel as cool as some hipster blogger while listening to it. The title track features a horn riff that will remind you of the synthesizer in Gary Numan’s “Cars,” but the soaring chorus is like one of those long-lasting wads of bubble gum. From there, Thornley weaves in and out from Ben Folds-like anthem (“Still Can’t Hide” and “It’s Me”) to the Aimee Mann-ish “There’s No Way” to the best track of all, the stunning ballad “What the Heart Wants” – the musical version of a lazy Saturday afternoon. Beth Thornley has really delivered a beauty with Wash U Clean, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a bad song on it."
