Every song tells a story…
If you love a good story then you'll fall for Rebecca Lappa’s songs; which bring fascinating characters to life through well-crafted lyrics and haunting melodies. Unlike typical teen songwriters who seek inspiration from their diary, Rebecca is inspired by history, myths and her imagination to write her trademark story songs. Some have said her songs are like mini movies. As you listen to her music, let her soulful vocals sweep you away!
