1999 - Too Much Plenty
For many years Chicago-based Beki Hemingway was involved in a string of underground bands, most recently the popular rockabilly group This Train, who toured with Rich Mullins. Now with her first solo LP, Beki finds her own sound, which she describes as "alterna-folkpoprock." Peppy electric guitars combine with full bass and drums to form a backdrop for melodically-charged vocals that are sometimes pop, sometimes edgy, and sometimes sweet. The fun and honest lyrics cover some nostalgic ground, discussing childhood memories and growing up, as well as relationships and faith.

2002 - Words For Loss For Words
Beki Hemingway spent two years grieving her fathers death, and the experience left her with an albums-worth of honest, moving, poetic songs concerning the surprising Presence of God in times of loss and brokenness. Words For Loss of Words is the perfectly realized folk-rock memento of those songs.
