Rebekka: Coffee and Music (Featured Download)

"From a small, rural town in the distant province, Norway, sounds an angelic voice. Rebekka, a young, up-and-coming neo-soul artist takes our thoughts way back to the golden era of soul.

Born into a music loving family she immediately learned to appreciate the joy of melody. With her father as a mentor she would travel around to perform along with her brother, and sang in various choirs and groups, until she wrote her first song on her own, November 2006. A star had begun her journey towards the skies.

Still determinately working to develope further in style and expression, Rebekka keeps blessing us with songs that we all can relate to. Inspired by that universal love and divinity that no human can help but to recognize, she writes most of her songs herself. "All kinds of music inspires me, especially soul music from the 1950's. But God, love, life, and my family is my biggest inspiration". Her music stretches into contrasts between the honesty and vulnerability of her lyrics, to the strength of her talent. All of this without getting in the way of catchy hooks, or keeping her humble person from shining through. In short: soothing music to make you feel good.

She is working closely with producers such as Harry West from Bergen and Jonesy for "JNS Beats" in Oslo. She has made great live performances, as well as a couple of international collaborations. Some with rap artists from the US. Her dream is to one day be able to make a living of her music, and concentrate fully on her great passion, on a lable that allows her to keep her artistic signature.

Meanwhile the fans can enjoy the new, free EP called Coffe and Music from this young lady with such a mature voice."
