BIOGRAPHY

Rebecca Lappa may have been Canada's best kept folk-rock secret - until now. The Canadian Folk Music Awards recipient and Edmonton Music Awards winner is Canada's brightest new voice.


The Edmonton based singer-songwriter who recently earned top prize for her song, "Valiant of Vimy Ridge" in the Spirit of Vimy contest hosted by the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta. Rebecca looks forward to her prize trip to Vimy Ridge (2017) to mark the centennial of the First World War battle. No stranger to winning awards or being sought after for stages often reserved for those of tenure, anyone that knows Rebecca has experienced and witnessed greatness in the making. While her music is a combination of folk, roots and rock, there's "that" voice - compelling in range, certain with every note - and her lyrics - strong, thought provoking, storytelling in nature and sometimes peppered with wit.

Having received a Factor Juried Sound Recording grant for her current album, Rebecca teamed up with JUNO-winning producer Russell Broom and created "Reckless Heart." Debuting at # 1 on CJSR's Top 30 and #10 on iTunes Singer/Songwriter Album chart (November 2016), "Reckless Heart" continued to chart on many other stations including 5 weeks on CILU Thunder Bay's Top 10 Folk/Roots/Blues Chart. Mike Ross of Gigcity stated, "The singing is the true knock-out here, the passion of Sheryl Crow with the sensitivity of Sarah McLachlan," . Russell Broom captured a nomination for Producer of the Year for "Reckless Heart" at the 2017 Western Canada Music Awards.
