so far, so good

Rebecca Hurn is a global award winning folk/pop singer-songwriter from South Wales. Rebecca's music is a unique blend of folk, pop and country, all entwined together to create her distinctive sound. Rebecca was the only unsigned artist to headline one of the major six festivals in the UK, The Isle Of Wight festival, in 2021.

Awards include 'Best UK Songwriter 2022' at the UK Songwriters Awards, in partnership with The Brits; ‘Best Song’ for 'Waves' at Cardiff Music Awards; ‘Best Folk Songwriter’ in New York City’s Independent Music Awards. Rebecca is only one of two UK artists to be awarded this, the other being Passenger with ‘Let Her Go’. Rebecca was the chosen artist out of hundreds as The New York Songwriters Circle 'Best Artist' of 2021 and received the 'Circle of One' fund. Rebecca has had five global award nominations with four different original songs from three different awards organisations since 2021. Rebecca was also selected on behalf of showcase festival Focus Wales, as 1 out of 3 artists to represent Wales in Global Music Match, a programme that encourages selected artists from across the globe to collaborate and network over the course of 4 months. From this, Rebecca is now about to begin a 10 date UK tour, supporting fellow Welsh artist Cara Hammond on her debut UK tour.

Rebecca has a strong, ever growing social media presence, with over 20k followers, 13m views and 3.6 million likes on TikTok alone. Although unsigned,  Rebecca has gained over 40k streams on multiple songs such as ‘Panic’ and ‘Something About Christmas’. Rebecca is a featured artist on the compilation album ‘Indie Christmas’ which has 1.2 million subscribers on YouTube and Spotify.

Rebecca's success is portrayed in her frequent radio plays across BBC platforms such as Radio 2 and 6, with frequent Radio Wales BBC A-List Playlists, where she was described as ‘a national treasure’ (BBC Introducing, Adam Walton). Rebecca was the first artist in the UK to suggest the innovative ‘pre-save' online facility, created specifically for the Waves EP release by the IT technicians at AWAL (Sony Music). This is now an established global practice by all artists.

Rebecca’s excitedly anticipated debut album is due for release Spring 2024. PRS, BBC and The New York Songwriters Circle have all been massive supporters of Rebecca’s debut album, awarding her with grants to pursue her recording ambitions. Her album has exceeded the highest quality of her previously extremely successful releases ‘Panic’ and ‘Waves’. Her new material is inspired from her musical ventures to New York, exploring the city’s musical avenues and connecting with Tina Shafer (Mentor and writer for Celine Dion), Judy Stakee (Warner) and writing with Darryl Rahn (Songwriter, appearing on Jimmy Fallon, who co-wrote her opening track 'Gave Up Giving' on her debut album.) Rebecca has as well solely written film scores for two feature length films, and also had 'Panic' feature during the end credits of the film 'Protect and Serve', which was premiered at The Cannes Film Festival.

Rebecca has performed at some stand out festivals multiple times such as ‘The Great Escape’, ‘How The Light Gets In’, ’Focus Wales’, ‘The Big Retreat’, ‘Wychwood’ and ‘Timber’. Rebecca was also a chosen act to perform at the first ‘In It Together Festival’. Alongside festivals, Rebecca has also played at some nationally recognised venues such as The Principality Stadium, Wales Millennium Centre and The Tramshed. Moving further afield, Rebecca was personally selected by British Pop musician Pixie Lott to perform at her music showcase in London, sharing the line up with global chart artist Tom Grennan. Globally recognised venues include New Yorks famous ‘Rockwood Music Hall’, ‘Arlene's Grocery’, and also the well known ‘Pianos’ and ‘The Bitter End’, home to Lana Del Ray and Lady Gaga’s early success. Her two most recent headline shows in her hometown city, Cardiff, were completely sold out.

The excitement for Rebecca's debut album is ever growing, which is reflective of how she has grown and matured as an artist and propelled her craft to its highest potential. Her debut album 'Brace For Impact' is sure to set new highs for her already successful career as an independent artist.
