As a singer/songwriter, Becca’s work fuses soulful vocals with country undertones, resulting in songs that exemplify the complexities of the folk rock genre. She cites artists Ray LaMontagne, Brandi Carlile, Patty Griffin, Amos Lee, and Anais Mitchell as musical inspirations. As a vocally driven artist, Becca’s voice is both powerful and delicate. Her expressive lyrics are emotional and distinct and are complemented by her instrumental range—she plays the guitar, ukulele, and banjo.

Becca grew up in Mansfield, Ohio—an old railroad town situated amongst sprawling farmland and newly constructed subdivisions. Her passion for music was born the day her mother dug out an old Yamaha guitar and taught her a simple finger picked folk song. The instrument captivated Becca, and as soon as she mastered two chords, she wrote her first song. At the age of 14 (and every day since) Becca has been immersed in the creation and performance of her own style of music.

Becca eventually migrated west to attend Stanford University—a place that unexpectedly allowed her to continue to cultivate her music. As she continued to write and perform, Becca gained notoriety through Stanford’s The Red Couch Project, a student run music series loosely based on NPR’s Tiny Desk concerts. Becca went on to win the TRCP/Stanford Soundtrack Collaboration Contest through peer vote, giving her the opportunity to perform at Stanford’s Science, Technology, Arts, and Nature Conference.

Recently, Becca has been performing regularly in San Francisco, most recently opening for Jay Brannan at Bottom of the Hill. She is currently hard at work recording her debut EP, which will be released in early 2015. Her currently unnamed project is a synthesis of work produced over Becca’s past three years living in San Francisco. Above all, this project, like all the music Becca creates, is centered on her humble goal of creating authentic, meaningful work.
