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.

    Becky is the smartest songwriter I know and an absolute pleasure to work with. She has a great ear, works quickly, and is a thorough, reliable communicator. I couldn't recommend her more!

Interview with Becky Warren

  1. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  2. A: Mary Bragg! She's a dear friend and a phenomenal singer and songwriter.

  3. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  4. A: Be as specific as you can be about what you want. References to singers and songs you like or don't like are always helpful!

  5. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  6. A: My guitar, my laptop, my Kindle (reading inspires a lot of my writing!), a huge battery (for the laptop and the Kindle) and an ocean of drinking water.

  7. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  8. A: I've been writing songs for more than 25 years, but my career really got started when Indigo Girl Amy Ray signed my Americana band, The Great Unknowns, to a record deal in 2004. I've recorded 2 albums with The Great Unknowns and one solo album.

  9. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  10. A: Record a stellar performance and then don't muck about with it too much afterwards.

  11. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  12. A: My own music is usually on the rock side of the Americana spectrum, but I love writing and singing in a variety of genres, including country, folk/singer-songwriter, and pop.

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: Songwriting and singing.

  15. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  16. A: Empathy, authenticity, emotion, and a rock edge.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I record in historic East Nashville. I use a couple different condenser mics, a Takamine acoustic, a PRS electric, and a custom Sandora amp.
