About

Rebecca Lappa's fearless fusion of folk, rock and pop has her cresting the wave of Canada's best contemporary singer-songwriters and creating a buzz with three 2019 Edmonton Music Award nominations and one win. Her compositions crackle with passion, beautiful melodies and clever lyrics sung in an edgy vocal style all her own. Lappa has toured Canada entrancing audiences at Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Calgary Folkfest, Canmore Folkfest,  and Ottawa Blues Festival. She's opened for Crash Test Dummies, Jenn Grant, Digging Roots, Reignwolf, Basia Bulat, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Mike Plume and Leeroy Stagger.  A Canadian Folk Music Awards and multiple Edmonton Music Awards winner, Lappa was a top 5 regional finalist in CBC Searchlight 2018 and charted nationally on campus radio. Using an Edmonton Arts Council grant, she's recording new music in 2019/20 with Producer Louise Burns of 604 Records. With her powerful vocals and honest stories, Lappa is an emerging Canadian talent who is clearly "one to watch".    

"Unfiltered" is Rebecca Lappa's fiery new EP that shares her passionate point of view and speaks volumes about what it means to be a strong empowered woman in the 21st century. With gale force vocals and uncompromising attitude she delivers four high energy pop gems, 2 produced by Russell Broom and 2 produced by Michael Hanson of Radar Love Records (Mississauga). Taking on a hard edge Lappa's performance on these tracks brings out the grittier tones and complexities of her vocal registers. Lappa's dance rock song, "Poison Rose",  is ridden with unforgettable melodic hooks and tells the story of love's explosiveness and the imminent dangers from a "femme fatale". "Fiercely", a break up song, combines the best of her storytelling abilities and heartfelt delivery. On the songs "Virtues and Vices" & "Can't Be Tamed", Lappa cuts loose and kicks up the volume, belting her way through section after section. "Poison Rose" earned Lappa 2 Edmonton Music Award nominations. "Fiercely" was a semi-finalist in the Undiscovered category of the 2018 Canadian Songwriting Competition.    


“Remember when Serena Ryder was just starting to gain international acclaim? When people would see her play a small gig and say, “She’s going to go somewhere?” That’s where Edmonton’s own Rebecca Lappa is at right now. With her singular take on folk rock, she’s dangling on the precipice of becoming a household, Western Canadian name.” Stephan Boissonneault, Vue Weekly, Aug 2018

“The creativity and heart you brought to your winning song was truly inspirational” Lois Mitchell, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta, March 2017
