Becca Stevens
Becca Stevens
North Carolina bred, Brooklyn based singer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Becca Stevens has already received copious praise from the likes of The New York Times, describing her as a best-kept secret and impressively absorbing. Drawing upon elements of pop, indie-rock, jazz, and traditional Appalachian folk, Stevens has been hailed for her unique ability to craft exquisite compositions both for her own band, and for artists who run the gamut of genre from the legendary David Crosby, to singer José James to classical pianist Timo Andres. Stevens has toured the world with her band and collaborated with the likes of: Brad Mehldau, Esperanza Spalding, Billy Childs, Ambrose Akinmusire, Jacob Collier, Vijay Iyer and many others. In April 2015, Perfect Animal, the highly anticipated follow-up to Weightless (Sunnyside), produced by engineer Scott Solter was released on Universal Music Classics. Becca's music is featured on the latest Snarky Puppy Family Dinner Vol 2.

Becca released her album Regina in March 2017 Featuring Laura Mvula, Jacob Collier, David Crosby and produced by Troy Miller (Gregory Porter, Laura Mvula, Amy Winehouse) and Co-produced by Michael League of Snarky Puppy. Regina is a tribute to strong women and figures in literature, history, and legend as well as her personal life (Ophelia, Venus, Elizabeth I, her Grandmother); various songs inspired by the regal and divine nature surrounding that word as well as Regina as a voice, like a trusted friend or an alter ego. Becca uses Regina as a muse or alter ego to write in a new way fearlessly mixing genres, pop, folk, rock, Jazz funk and much more! The innovative Japanese designer Koshiro Ebata (Lady Gaga, Dior, Louis Vuitton) designs the look for her album and videos. This is the first album under Becca Stevens rather than Becca Stevens Band and marks a clear new direction in cementing her career as one of the most important, authentic and talented singer-songwriters of a generation.

The first single from Regina has been hand picked by NPR for "Songs We Love" - Listen Here

Their debut album, “Take A Picture,” was listed in Music Connection Magazine’s Hot 100 for 2011.

“…songwriting and lyrics – so strong and rich that they nearly become visual….the most tangibly evocative record I’ve heard in a long time.“ Matt Hartgering, Mid-By-Northwest

“…drop-dead show-stopper…” Music Connection Magazine
