She and Beth have an honest and open conversation about sobriety, religion and Abby’s youth in the Catholic church - and her relationship to it as she accepted her sexuality at a young age. She explains the importance of sports for all kids to develop an ability to take care of themselves, discusses the necessity of exercise and movement for maintaining her mental health, and the disparity between men and women’s earnings and treatment in professional sports - and a huge realization she had while standing onstage between Kobe Bryant and Peyton Manning as they were all three honored upon their retirements.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we bring you an emotional conversation with Tony and Emmy-winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth. Having recently lost a lifelong voice teacher and dear friend to COVID-19 at the time of this interview, Chenoweth brings a very open conversation about grief and mental health, talking with host Beth Behrs about her struggles with depression and anxiety during the pandemic, and throughout her life - accepting that she does need to acknowledge her mental health struggles, even though due to her public persona, most people expect her to be "rainbows and glitter" 24/7.
In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, Beth slows things down and checks in with a dear friend: Harmonics Executive Producer and BGS Co-Founder Amy Reitnouer Jacobs! While the pandemic is beginning to subside here in the U.S. (and what a wonderful thing it is) let's be real: it's a weird time right now. Folks are getting vaccinated (within so many different timelines, might we add) and some are immediately diving head-first back into society and socialization - six feet be damned. With everyone at varying levels of anxiety - and comfortable speeds of fully returning to the ways of the "before" times - and after a year-plus of having our mental health hit at from every possible direction, we think it's important to take this month of May - Mental Health Awareness Month - to give ourselves and others some grace and set some boundaries. Our mental health is worth it.

This week, in the final installment of our Americana April series here on Harmonics, host Beth Behrs speaks with folk singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews, who has just released Old Monarch, a beautiful collection of poetry, and her very first of its kind. Beth's own deep love of poetry makes for a perfect pair in this episode. On top of her songwriting and poetry, Andrews also had a deep passion for painting, and she and Beth discuss the difference between various artistic outlets and how she moves through a creative block, as well as the joy of creating art simply for the sake of creating art, not necessarily as something to be shared with the world - or with anyone, for that matter. Growing up in the Sonoran desert of Arizona, she has been influenced by the beauty and vastness of the desert since a young age, and the desert and nature in general continue to inspire her art and spirituality to this day. And as we will never know the answers to the major questions of the universe in this realm, Andrews finds comfort in embracing the beauty in the mysteries of life, rather than in the answers. She discusses the feeling of recently playing her first live show to an audience since the pandemic began, reads us some poetry from Old Monarch, and so much more on this episode. Hear our first two installments of Americana April with Fiona Prine (https://thebluegrasssituation.com/read/harmonics-with-beth-behrs-fiona-prine/) and Margo Price.

It’s Americana April here on Harmonics, and this week brings a conversation with one of Beth’s all-time favorite artists – Americana or otherwise – Nashville’s very own Margo Price. This past year may have temporarily pulled Margo off the never-ending road of touring, but that doesn’t mean the pace has slowed down – being a mother is a never-ending rush of another kind. She and Beth talk about this time spent at home, from spending time with her children and attempting to instill in them a respect for the earth and for people, to navigating the complexities of a songwriting relationship with her husband, singer-songwriter Jeremy Ivey. Margo also shares her feelings on becoming the first female artist on the board of Farm Aid (a full-circle, bittersweet moment after her family lost the farm when she was young,) the advice she’s gleaned from the greats like Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris, working with longtime friend Sturgill Simpson as the producer on her latest album That’s How Rumors Get Started, and so much more.

Beth has a conversation with Fiona Prine, President of Nashville's Oh Boy Records, and wife and former manager of the late great songwriter John Prine, whom we lost from COVID-19 last year. The two talk about John’s recent posthumous Grammy wins (and Fiona’s experience accepting the award on his behalf), mental health, growing up in Ireland, her and John’s love story, and so much more. While Fiona is a well-respected figure in the Nashville community in her own right - as a role model as a female label head, an extremely successful manager, and music business professional throughout her life - she has also been able to keep the spirit of John’s incredible legacy alive even after his passing.

This week on Harmonics, Beth speaks with entrepreneur Carly Stein, founder and CEO of Beekeeper’s Naturals. Carly talks with Beth about the journey that brought her to the founding of the company, from a childhood and young adult life afflicted with chronic illness and an allergic reaction to Western medicine, a seemingly miraculous discovery of propolis (a substance created by honeybees) as an aid for said illness, and her subsequent endeavors to bring authentically organic, high quality natural bee products to North America through her own beekeeping. Carly’s story is an eye-opening look into the sometimes murky world of wellness, and an inspiring tale of determination and vision.

Dr. Tara Swart is a neuroscientist, medical doctor, Senior Lecturer at MIT, and author of best-seller ‘The Source.’ She and host Beth Behrs have an in-depth conversation on neuroplasticity, and how we can physically change the structure of our brains through our thoughts, and therefore, change our lives. Following a full career in medicine, Dr. Tara was surprised to realize the scientific evidence supporting the Law of Attraction, and has since committed her work to helping others use science-backed practices to live their fullest lives.

Beth is still pinching herself after this interview with her hero: Carol Burnett has been the object of Beth's idolization since childhood and is the ultimate reason she is now a physical comedian. Not only has her infectious comedic style influenced Beth in every which way, but the two have both been with CBS for a decade, and they bond over their shared experiences of working in front of a studio audience. Burnett tells her story from the first time she realized she was funny (5:54) through the divine intervention (or something like it) that's guided her through her life and career (14:15), muses on her late daughter's mantra that has inspired her outlook on life (26:58), recalls the creative process and origins of the Carol Burnett Show, and being a woman in a "man's game" (28:58), and recounts her lifelong friendship with Julie Andrews (42:40).

Welcome to Season 2 of Harmonics! We're kicking things off with incredible four-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jewel. She and host Beth Behrs have an insightful conversation about her experience with mindfulness throughout her life as a response to anxiety. Jewel presents multiple tangible skills she has developed along the way that everyone can easily apply to their own lives to expand their mindfulness. She's brought these skills to struggling children as well, having been an avid advocate for mental health awareness and using her platform to lift others up throughout her career. Her work through her own Jewel Never Broken program, in conjunction with the Inspiring Children Foundation, has supported so many children through mental health support, mentoring, education, and equipping them with important life skills, and tools to earn college scholarships and become forces for good in the world. Jewel's honesty regarding her own struggles, and how it informs her creativity, her art, and her life, is incredibly inspiring. Just in case you're not yet convinced you should give this episode a listen - Jewel also gives Beth a personal lesson in yodeling.

Their mission is to safeguard the dignity of America's horses throughout their lives, and to share the ability that horses have to empower, teach, and heal. Equine therapy has had a huge impact on host Beth Behrs' and her family's lives - horses have been instrumental in Beth's mental health and loving connection within her family. Also in this episode - we announce the first few guests for Season 2 of Harmonics!
In honor of Valentine's Day, Beth debuts a love song - "More Than I Do" - because everyone who makes a record has gotta write a love song, right?
Bird On Horseback

Beth dives into a lineage of ancestral trauma, and the significance of shared experiences between women in her family through generations, through her song "Bird on Horseback."
From Beth: "This episode almost didn’t happen. I thought long and hard about taking this step to not only be vulnerable with listeners, but also to put out some music into the world that I never intended to be shared – music that was strictly intended as therapy. But, the reason I started this podcast was to explore how creativity is healing, and also to have creatives be open and honest about the messy bits: everything that forms the human experience. None of us get through life without the messy bits. How could I interview everyone else and hear their open and vulnerable takes on healing and the process of their creativity, and not let you hear the same? I am so grateful to the Brothers Koren. They have an incredible program called the songwriter’s journey where they help folks to reclaim their Big Voice – and to reclaim their power, creativity, and truth through that voice. As musicians themselves they’ve toured with the likes of Coldplay, Pink, and Rod Stewart, but they decided that after so many years in the music industry, they wanted to use their voices, their music and their incredible talents to help others. In this episode we discuss our creative process as we worked together for the past year and a half, after they came into my life at one of the most difficult times for me, especially regarding my relationship to art. I hope you’ll stay tuned to the end of this episode for the premiere of our song “The Moon Will Stay,” which is a collaboration of a poem I wrote for my grandfather and the beautiful music it inspired in Thorald and Isaak Koren." More music from Beth Behrs and the Brothers Koren will be available on Bandcamp later this month. All proceeds will benefit mental health-focused charities.
Sometimes you have weeks where the ‘ol bag of tricks just isn’t working. Meditating everyday. Exercising. Healthy eating. Beth had one of those weeks where even though she was doing all of her “tricks” to combat anxiety and stress, she wasn’t able to sleep. At all. This is not a fun problem to have. But instead of fighting this fact, she decides to see what would happen when she accepts, nourishes, and embraces the problem - and she learns quite a bit in the process.
Everyone has a “Dolly Story” - including our host Beth Behrs. In this bonus episode, she shares what Dolly means to her through four pieces of wisdom she’s picked up from our favorite Backwoods Barbie.
Happy new year, and welcome back to Harmonics! As we venture into 2021, we want to continue to build each other up and provide some peace and energy through Harmonics - that's why we've created a monthly newsletter to grow and strengthen this community. You can join on the Harmonics website and follow along on our Instagram.
This week's guest is Gina Chavez, a Latin Grammy nominee, multiethnic Austin native, queer Catholic, internationally acclaimed Latinx pop artist who is redefining Latin music in Texas and beyond. A 12-time Austin Music Award winner, including 2015 Musician of the Year and 2019 Best Female Vocals, she is an Austin icon and word is getting out: she has more than one-million views on her NPR Tiny Desk Concert, and she has done a 12-country tour through Latin America, the Middle East and Central Asia as a cultural ambassador with the U.S. State Department. Chavez talks with Beth on the universality of music, growing up Catholic and coming out as lesbian in college, the ancient Latin American traditions that inform her music, and so much more.
Singer, songwriter, activist, and all-around badass woman Mary Gauthier joins host Beth Behrs on this episode of Harmonics. The two talk about why superheroes are so often adoptees and orphans (and vice versa,) the power of songwriting for veterans, her last live show immediately before the shutdown, and so much more. Mary Gauthier's name is spoken with reverence in songwriter circles.  She’s won countless awards from organizations like the Americana Music Association, GLAAD, and Folk Alliance International, and was nominated for Best Folk Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards. A Louisiana native, she’s been releasing her own music for over twenty years, but her 2019 record Rifles and Rosary Beads brought a whole new level to her art, when she collaborated with the Songwriting With Soldiers project to put wounded veterans’ stories to song.
