Rebecca Lappa & The Revelry

On Rebecca Lappa’s latest album, Reckless Heart, the wise-beyond-her-years singer/songwriter bravely dives into the complicated sea of emotions that define modern romance, and emerges with a collection of songs sure to add her name to the roll call of Canada’s brightest new folk-rock voices.

Armed with powerful songs such as “Breathe In The Storm,” Rebecca teamed up with JUNO-winning producer Russell Broom (Jann Arden, Chantal Kreviazuk, Johnny Reid), who helped guide her along the path toward a new musical vision for Reckless Heart.

A native of Edmonton, Alberta, Rebecca Lappa’s journey in music began at a young age with classical vocal training. She is a five-time Canadian Folk Music Awards nominee, winning once in 2015 for her album Tattered Rose. She has also performed at many major events in Canada, including the Edmonton Folk Festival, Camrose Folk Festival, Winnipeg Folk Festival, and Ottawa Bluesfest. She has a special relationship with the Calgary Folk Festival where she is a two-time winner of its songwriting competition.

Although traditional folk was her primary interest during her formative years—her album based on poems by Alfred Lord Tennyson was named Adult Alternative Recording of the Year at the Edmonton Music Awards—since releasing Tattered Rose, Rebecca has felt the urge to break away from her folk influences and establish a new musical identity. Part of that includes forming her new trio, Rebecca and the Revelry.

Reckless Heart is indeed the work of a mature singer/songwriter who has lived and breathed music her entire life. To this point, Rebecca Lappa may be the Canadian folk world’s best kept secret, but soon the entire country is sure to be charmed by her wide-ranging talent.
