Smiling Beth is an avant-goth gay piano demon serving you absurdist lesbian death jazz n Dada-step for your tender lil soul. Looming over Los Angeles and toilets near you since 2014
Smiling Beth is an absurdist piano demon formed in 2014 by Los Angeles’ favourite queer Iranian-Filipino first generation American femme. Tired of categories and labels, Smiling Beth wants to encourage everyone to stop giving a shit about fitting in.
Recognized for her aggressive piano playing, her band is a rotating lineup which incorporates rambunctious drums, eerie trumpet, and threatening viola. She has toured in New York, the Pacific Northwest and made her SXSW debut in 2019. She was also featured in "Weirdo Night (the movie)" which premiered in the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. Her first two EPs “Little Woman” (2016) and “Tunnel of Love” (2017) as well as her first full-length release “A Piano Walks Home Alone At Night” (2020) are available on all streaming platforms.
