Quirky singer from New York gives a preview of her upcoming album.
Back to simplicity
With her new songs, singer Becca Stevens returns to simplicity, accompanying herself on guitar and assisted by a great acoustic rhythm section: Chris Tordini on double bass and Jordan Perlson on drums. They look ahead to Becca's new album, which is expected to sound very different from the exuberant dance pop that gave color to her previous solo album Wonderbloom . The new album is expected to be released this year on GroundUP, the label of Snarky Puppy leader Michael League.
Becca Stevens grew up in North Carolina and her way of singing and playing bears traces of the regional folk music of the Appalachians, often accompanying herself on ukulele and lute. In New York she was trained in jazz and developed her own style. Famous colleagues love her: Esperanza Spalding, Kurt Elling and José James praise her for her voice control and her idiosyncrasy. Becca has previously worked with David Crosby and Ambrose Akinmusire, and is a member of the singing trio Tillery with Gretchen Parlato and Rebecca Martin.
