The New York Times, describes US-American vocalist and songwriter Becca Stevens as ‘a best-kept secret’ and ‘impressively absorbing’. She has appeared on Snarky Puppy’s sucess album "Family Dinner Volume 2" as well as collaborating with artists such as Esperanza Spalding, Brad Mehldau, Jose James or David Crosby. Stevens' style has always evaded categorization. One hears pop, rock, R&B and funk side-by-side with traditional folk, classical, world music, and jazz. She has been compared to Björk, St. Vincent, Tori Amos and Joni Mitchell and is certainly making her mark on the international music scene in a big way, establishing herself as a long term and important artist for the future. Becca Stevens' new album is probably her most personal statement yet - drawing inspiration from her late father and her understanding of the preciousness of life and the ability of finding inner joy and peace, especially in politically turbulent times like currently in her home country, the USA.
