GRAMMY-nominated, Brooklyn-based and North Carolina-bred Becca Stevens has established an outstanding career for herself, blending and effortless vocal talent with exquisite compositions that draw inspiration from pop, jazz, indie-rock and traditional Appalachian folk music. Her most recent album, WONDERBLOOM (GroundUP ’20, which she produced and engineered with Nic Hard) displays Stevens’ skill of layering profound and discerning lyrics with funky and dance-ready beats in a record that Jazz Magazine described as “sophisticated and sensual pop” and The Mail on Sunday said is “Glamorous… semi-electric pop Prince might approve of.” The track “Slow Burn” from WONDERBLOOM was nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals in 2020.
Becca continues to push the boundaries of convention, with her music weaving together music from her youth with the expertise of jazz composition she's picked up from some of the greats. Along with her solo output, Becca is a highly-respected collaborator who has worked with the likes of David Crosby, Jacob Collier, Michael League (Snarky Puppy), Brad Mehldau, Chris Thile, Esperanza Spalding, Attacca Quartet, Laura Mvula, José James, Cory Wong, Vince Mendoza and Timo Andres. She refused to be labeled and continues to defy the notion of what a singer-songwriter should be. Instead, she dictates to the rest of what what we should (and should not) expect from artistry such as hers.
