Becca Mancari

Becca Mancari is rewriting the rules.
Born in Staten Island, New York, to an Italian
-
Irish preacher and a Puerto Rican
mother, Mancari
has lived a life of transition
-
from working as a janitor in South
Florida, to writing songs with train hoppers in the Blue Ridge Mountains and
seeking spirituality in India. But it was her time in Virginia and Nashville where
she found roots where she c
ould evolve personally and musically to a seasoned
artist beyond her years.
Her anticipated debut album,
Good Woman
, is hauntingly lonesome, with dust
-
cloud swells of electric guitar and don't
-
look
-
back lyrics revealing scenes from
Mancari’s well
-
travelled story. Since her music is the landscape of all she's seen,
Good Woman
evokes the sound of city grit and the mounta
in music of her youth,
swirling into a fresh, nostalgic sound.
In reference to her evolving sound, Mancari explains that on
Good Woman
, “We played with atmospheric tones and textures, with a lot of
space
-
like reverb, to create a sort of soundscape.” It's
these planetary frontiers,
along with the powerful fragility in her voice, that make Mancari's music stand
beyond easy categorizations.
Perhaps more striking than Mancari’s sound is the tender honesty and
vulnerability present in each of her songs. Ann P
owers describes Mancari’s
writing as "lyrical and raw," commenting on the "great personality in her songs."
Her strong
sense of self
enables her to be a spokeswoman to the outcast and the
misfit, helping her redefine the categories that so often divide peo
ple.
As a gay woman in the south, she has had to face her own set of divisions and
has fought hard to reconcile her spiritual beliefs with her sexuality. Though she’s
faced her own struggles, she has only emerged stronger: When Mancari sings,
she shines
with charisma and compassion. She walks the line between the
masculine and the feminine, and it is this spirit that is paving a new path in music
today.
After two years of touring worldwide, a new record is soon to be finished. The
new album focuses on th
emes of forgiveness and acceptance while remaining
light and exhilarating. Zac Farro, from HalfNoise and Paramore, is producing the
record, adding a rhythmic depth to Becca’s storytelling

FRANCES CONE is Christina Cone, Andrew Doherty, Alex Baron, and Adam Melchor. Their rich harmonies, electrifying guitar sound, and deliberate production accompanied with a striking audible sincerity make their live show intensely compelling and their recordings undeniable. They simultaneously challenge your head and soothe your soul. Having been compared to the likes of Fleetwood Mac, The Head and the Heart, and Lucius, they are on the brink of something great as they are set to release an album fall 2016.
