Stellar vocals, compelling songwriting and a dramatic and engaging stage presence.”

Beth Portman and the Good Find, great songs and real joy! ”

— Holger Petersen, Stony Plain Records, CKUA Radio Network.

Beth Portman is a storyteller, presenting her personal perspective on life and love through original lyrics and engaging music. Inspired by the musical styles of the early to mid-20th century, Portman's music has been described as clever, touching and sassy. 
 
Portman performs with 'The Good Find', a band of musicians that complement her performance on the ukulele and guitar. Instrumentation ranges from an acoustic bass and guitar duo to an expanded version with a female vocalist and or drummer, who, along with Portman, incorporates percussion through suitcases, picnic baskets and mint boxes.
 
As a solo performer, Portman builds rhythmic layers using suitcases and their contents to support her original songs, vocals, ukulele and guitar work. It's a contemporary twist on her vintage vibe sound that's creative, playful and in the moment.
 
Based in Edmonton, Portman has performed across Alberta in an assortment of performing spaces that include Horizon Stage, the Nickelodeon Folk Club, the Needle Vinyl Tavern, Fort Edmonton Park's Capitol Theatre, the Secret Streetcar Concerts and on numerous Battle River Railway Excursions.  Portman has two recordings, Lovin' and Take a Trip.

In November 2016, Beth created Take a Trip: A Musical Journey for Fort Edmonton Park's Capitol Theatre. Inspired by Beth Portman & the Good Find's 2015 EP release Take a Trip, this themed concert about trains, the prairies and the connections that bind us featured original songs by Portman. More details about Take a Trip: A Musical Journey (EPK)
