Every song tells a story…


A storyteller songstress from Edmonton, Rebecca’s modern folk sound is uniquely her own.  Her songs, based on history, myths & poetry, evoke powerful images and emotions.  She moves easily from blues to jazz to pop styles and accompanies herself on piano, guitar, banjo or drum.  See her live and you will be entranced by her vocals and drawn into the depths of her songs.
