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.
