Ps. 137: By The Waters of Babylon
BETTY is Alyson Palmer, Amy Ziff, Elizabeth Ziff – best friends and bandmates since 1986. Feminist activists who play original alt.pop music, BETTY is pro-choice, pro- queer, pro-straight, pro-women, pro-immigrant, pro-Trans, pro-fun, pro-reading, pro- facts, pro-food, pro-dessert, pro-sex, pro-love and anti-violence. When not locked down by infectious viruses, BETTY tours internationally and has music in films and tv, including the global smash theme song to the L Word. Currently working on their 11th album, BETTY lends their voices to causes they believe in, and is creating a compilation of videos in the time of Covid from their separate locations. BETTY’s non-profit wing is The BETTY Effect (thebettyeffect.org) which enables them to promote self-advocacy through music and performance for women and girls, members of the LGBTQ+ community and indigenous people worldwide. The band launched BETTYverse while in lockdown, to give away songs from the massive vault of 34 years worth of music and memories they explore in their popular podcast, BETTY:Girlband, available where all podcasts live.
