ATLANTIC MINE - Fresh off an appearance on "The X Factor," Copper Country native and current Nashville resident Hannah Bethel is returning home for a concert Tuesday.
Bethel will be performing at Brownstone Hall in Atlantic Mine from 7 to 9 p.m., and will bring a few of her friends with her.
"I'm going to have my sister Wynter opening for me," Bethel said in a phone interview. "I'll be playing with Mark Lucier and Kevin Maki, who are great musicians in the area that I played a lot with growing up."
The singer/songwriter has been keeping busy over the last couple months, slowly growing her name and popularity in Nashville.
"I've just been writing a ton and playing a ton," Bethel said. "I've been talking with some publishers and kind of searching for a professional songwriting deal.
"I'm working really hard to promote myself as an independent artist."
Part of that promotion will culminate in a new YouTube show Bethel will put on titled "Every Other Thursday." Starting today, Bethel will debut episodes on her YouTube page with original songs, covers, skits, guest artists and updates on her career.
"It's going to be a variety of things," Bethel said. "There will actually be several Christmas episodes before Christmas; it's beginning more than every other Thursday just to get it kicked off. ... They're going to keep it real and be exciting and fresh."
Some new music is also in the works for Bethel, as she will hit the recording studio when she gets back to Nashville after the holidays.
"It'll be sort of like an EP, an online-only singles release for iTunes with five songs," Bethel said. "I'll be working with a producer named Andy Sheridan, and this will be the first time that I have worked with a producer, so I'm super excited about that."
Bethel's show Tuesday will have a $5 cover charge and she will have CDs for sale.
