American singer and musician Becca Stevens is universally praised for her voice control and eccentric style. Her voice and mix of pop, folk and jazz is downright remarkable; she’s truly a unique talent.
Becca Stevens grew up in North Carolina and you can hear this in her way of singing and playing. There are traces of regional folk music from the Appalachian, which has her playing the ukulele or flute. Renowned colleagues like Esperanza Spalding, Brad Mehldau, Kurt Elling and José James have praised her publically. Her voice may remind you of that of Joni Mitchell. Becca has worked together before with Amborse Akinmusire and is also part of vocal trio Tillery with Gretchen Parlato and Rebecca Martin. Her new album sounds like avant-garde pop that is similar in sound to Talking Heads and Feist. Her four-piece band consists of creative jazz musicians from Brooklyn. The new songs sound open and clear and are a surprising addition to her repertoire.
“Blessed with a beautiful voice and the capacity to create engaging songs in the borderland between pop, rock, folk and jazz. The musicianship that oozes from each note is downright sensational.” – Heaven
