Bethany Annie-Mae Joynes, from Bilston, Wolverhampton, known as Bethany A, is using her newly-found free time to focus on her musical career.

The 18-year-old said: “I have wanted to be a singer since I learned how to talk.

“There are so many videos and stories, I could go on forever about it.

“I was asked to sing backing vocals alongside a local band and we went down to Cornwall and recorded at the Cube Studios.

“In September, I ended up going back there by myself to record a song that I had written and made the melody to.

“It was an 18th birthday present from my dad. The song, called Sinner, is out now and there is a video on my YouTube channel.”

Bethany had planned to get back in the studio in Cornwall, from January 8 to 11, but due to the new national lockdown it had to be postponed.

However, the Black Country singer is not letting that dampen her spirits.

“As soon as lockdown is lifted, I hope to go down to the studio when it is safe to do so,” she added.

“The first lockdown was a shock, but this time I am taking more of a positive approach and using this time to write music and learn to play the piano.

“My goal is to have three more songs out in the spring, and then a full album in 2022.”

Bethany has already been making a name for herself throughout the Black Country and via online audiences, appearing on Jim Davidson’s Sunday Night Live programme on YouTube, which is watched by thousands.

And now she wants to try and reach an even bigger audience.

“My career is now focused on music and my dream is to get my song out there to the world,” she said. “This year, I’m planning to get a job and save up so I can do more with my music career.”
