As members of the human race, we are all faced with a never-ending number of options to embrace, ways to react to situations and answers to our most feared questions. In her single "Run," Rebecca shares her experience responding to one of the many crossroads that make up our reality.
During her time learning to live within the parameters of real life, Rebecca realized that sometimes simply surviving is difficult and the scales are not always in your favor. She has learned that heartbreak exists and that it does not only occur due to a failed relationship or loss, but can also result from the mere revealing of truth. She has learned that the process of making, and playing, music helps.
Ever since she came to this realization, no one could pry her away from melody and the creation of music in order to show others that this is the case.
Rebecca has won several songwriting and talent competitions in Northern California including the Vacaville Singer-Songwriter Competition and the Davis' Got Talent Competition. In 2014, Rebecca was a finalist in the Sacramento Has Talent Competition, and in 2015 as well as 2016, Rebecca was nominated in the Singer-Songwriter category in the Sacramento News & Review sponsored SAMMIES awards.
Although she is proud how far she has come as an artist, she is even more proud of her journey as a person and where it is leading her. She would love to have you join her as her journey continues.
HOW IT STARTED
Exploring putting pen to paper in her elementary school years, Rebecca found that writing allowed her to feel purpose. She began writing stories about kittens (of course) in kindergarten, which quickly transitioned to poetry about life by the 5th grade. Although her parents were a bit concerned about her prematurely-deep soul, little did they know that this–combined with her love to dance and sing on tables–would lead to a fulfilling career as a songwriter.
Rebecca began combining melody with her words in 2009, and it is all history.
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT
Rebecca discontinued her time at a wonderful full-time job in advertising because music would creep into her mind during her 40+ hours creating for other people, and say hello, but she would not have time to answer. She asked herself "Hey Rebecca, what do you love most?" Her answer continuously was "Well, music of course," and here we are.
Rebecca now spends each day writing, playing, recording and thinking of what she loves most. All of her ideas are becoming concrete materials to demonstrate her love to all of you.
WHERE IS SHE GOING?
As much as this question is daunting, Rebecca finds it incredibly beautiful and inspiring to think of the possibilities. Ideally, she would love to be writing, recording and playing whenever possible, with as many people as possible and in many places as possible.
In May of 2016 and following the release of her single "Run," Rebecca relocated to Los Angeles to learn about how to make this a reality.
This next year is sure to be a wild, unpredictable ride. You are welcome to join as she runs toward the unknown.
