Rebecca Loebe, with her “breathtakingly beautiful, delightful and superb” voice (Huffington Post) returns to the Winter Wind stage on Sunday, December 2, 2018. Tickets for the 7:00 pm concert at The Depot, 200 South Jones, are $20.
Singer-songwriter Rebecca Loebe began playing guitar at age 11. At 17, she was the second youngest person in her freshman class at Berklee College of Music, where she graduated with a degree in Music Production and Engineering. After college, Rebecca began working at a recording studio in South Boston where she began recording demos of her early original songs.
Moving forward from those early days, Rebecca has spent the past decade on the road performing in 44 states of the U.S., as well as Canada, Europe, The U.K. and Japan. Along the way she has honed her voice as one of the Americana music scene’s most exciting new songwriters and earned a place on Alternate Root Magazine’s annual listing of The Top 10 Female Singers in America.
Her new album, Blink, is Rebecca’s fourth full-length studio album. Blink was born one summer night on the way home from a gig in South Texas when a song that Loebe had put on about a million high school mix tapes came on the radio. She says, “Suddenly I was transported back in time to the summer I was 17... Before I got home, I’d written Forever Young Forever and the rest of the songs that would make up Blink started spilling out.”
Blink is heavy on vibe and light on overdubs. Loebe’s award-winning voice and her songwriting are masterfully supported by the nuanced real-time performances of a close-knit five piece band. The 11-song collection of new originals is equally inspired by soul, folk and southern rock.
Rebecca is again touring the world to share the songs of Blink, embarking on her eighth international tour and hoping to cross the final six states of the U.S. off her list. The Depot welcomes her back to Winter Wind!
