Becca Stevens / Margaret Glaspy
February 2, 2013
Hailed by The New York Times as a best-kept secret with an impressively absorbing debut album, Becca Stevens has established herself as a singer/composer of enormous talent. Her songs expand and blur the boundaries of folk, jazz, and pop while engaging the the listener through keen poetic observation, rich musical language, and beguiling singing. Her musical roots are in classical guitar, the folk music of her native North Carolina, and jazz, with additional influences ranging from West African rhythms to eccentric pop.
