Beth started out her musical career creating the band Karmalatta. Honing things with her 3 buds, Brien Mick, Andy Burr and Greg Beltz, Beth was the lead singer, songwriter, and rhythm guitarist of the band Karmalatta. During the band’s tumultuous time, they self-produced all their material, played out in the Philly music scene with highlights including: The Tin Angel, Connie’s Ric Rac, The Red Stallion, The Grape Room, The Barbary, The Fire and The Trocadero.
When the pandemic shut down the U.S. 3/13/2020, Karmalatta released their final EP and Beth was on her way to solo career land.
With new songs, Beth found producer Ron Disilvestro @Forge Recording Studios. Together they assembled a team of musicians including John K. Faye (of the Caulfields), Brendan McGeehan (bassist, producer, member of Right Fiction) and Will Brown (lead guitar, XIXIX music.)
She released her solo debut,“Gimme Back My Castle” in December 2021. The EP features three singles including the raspy, compelling power song “I Know It’s A Sickness,” the melodic, catchy “Merry Go Round” and the gritty anthem; “I Think I Need Help.” The music video for it was released soon after the single, which Gilbert made herself. It features smashing clocks, various objects burning, snakes and more. “It is grungy & gritty, I love it,” she says.
Gilbert’s discography includes Karmalatta’s self produced full length Album “From Me To You” & two EPs: “Sheep Eater” & “Don’t Wanna Talk About It.” She has written and co-written hundreds of other songs. She contributed an original song to The Philadelphia Jazz Projects "Remedy" sessions as well as lending her vocals to the Ray Charles version of "I Don't Need A Doctor" for that project. She has featured songs on both ''A Philly Christmas for Kids Volume I & II,” compilations (all proceeds donated to CHOP children's charity.)
