Becky Warren on SoundBetter

Hey! I open frequently for the Indigo Girls and I've been featured on All Things Considered. I'm love writing & singing gritty, authentic rock, country, and Americana.

I feel incredibly fortunate. I started writing songs at age 13 and these days I get to open for some of my biggest musical heroes, like The Indigo Girls and Mary Chapin Carpenter. My songs were reviewed favorably by the dean of American rock critics himself, Robert Christgau. I would love to help you take your own songs to the next level by offering my songwriting, singing, or recording expertise.

Here's a more official bio if you're into that:
With a slew of songwriting honors (including the Kerrville New Folk award and Merlefest country category award) and a frequent spot touring and singing with The Indigo Girls, Becky has proven she has the writing and performance skills to add a deluxe Nashville character to your project. She's a versatile writer and singer, with killer rock n roll songs like "Dive Bar Sweetheart" and vulnerable ballads like "I Miss You", all performed with grit and authenticity. She's written or co-written hundreds of songs for her solo projects, her bands The Reckless Electric and The Great Unknowns, and for other artists' records.

  1. Review by Gary M.

    I chose Becky to help with my songwriting because I was so impressed by her own material. She really knows her stuff and she provided me with some great guidance on a song that will help make it into something great. I know I will work with her again.

  2. Review by Ray D.

    Becky wrote lyrics for me with just the clever idea I was looking for. Thanks.

  3. Review by Larry M.

    Becky is an enormously talented singer/songwriter who I was blessed to have do the vocals for one of my songs. She seemed to intuitively sense what it needed.

    We actually had a chance to meet in real life when she opened for the Indigo Girls in Baltimore. She's also my favorite Jeopardy! contestant. :)

  9. Review by amy a.

    I enjoyed working with becky, she has an amazing bluesy rock/ country voice. She created a cool melody to my lyrics, and listened and did a good job of getting the melody excatly the way i wanted it. If you want a gritty tone singer, I would recomend becky to sing for your project.
