This week on State of Art we’re hearing from Anchorage musician Bethlehem Shalom.

Bethlehem Shalom has multiple releases that showcase her eclectic tastes and a kind of Jackson-Pollock-style songwriting. Her albums will keep you on your toes as she blends genres and moods from indie rock to jazz to hip-hop. 

She’s been playing music all her life starting out with a purple toy microphone and eventually playing in school bands.
