‘Brooklyn’

Judy Stakee is a music publisher, artist mentor, author and speaker based in Los Angeles,

California, who has signed and developed artists including Katy Perry and Sheryl Crow. Judy

was the Senior Vice-President of Creative at Warner Chappell Music from 1989 to 2009.

Judy got to hear Rebecca’s music and got in touch saying that she really liked Rebecca’s

voice and melody lines and invited Rebecca to take part in one of her Song writing retreats

in Phoenica New York State USA.

Rebecca took up the invitation and spent 10 days in the USA including several days in New

York City after the Phoenica retreat. It was on the plane on the way home to London that

inspired the song which was penned there and then on the flight back.

It’s really about finding new friendships and how equally exciting and frustrating those

friendships can be when you’re separated by thousands and thousands of miles.

This theme also runs through the CD sleeve design cover where artist Megan Elsey has

portrayed a couple under the stars combining the New York and London skylines in the

artwork.

Brooklyn was recorded at the Woodcroft studios, Cardiff Bay during the last week of August

where Rebecca teamed up with producer Lee House who was her producer for her 2nd EP

‘Waves’, backing vocals were provided by Porthcawl singer songwriter Elis Thomas.

Brooklyn the single is released today November 5th 2018 and after being invited by the New

York Songwriters Circle Rebecca is once again in New York on release day where she will be

performing an acoustic set in the iconic Greenwich Village music venue The Bitter End on

147 Bleeker Street where music legends such as James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie

Wonder, Taylor Swift, Joan Armatrading and Bob Dylan have performed.

‘Brooklyn’ is available from 5th November 2018 on all digital platforms including iTunes

where today Rebecca was one of only three unsigned artists in the top 60 of the UK iTunes

Singer Songwriter chart reaching number 18.

There are a limited number of CD’s available which includes the bonus Brooklyn ( Demo

Version) by contacting Rebecca directly.

‘Waves’ EP was recorded between Monday 7th August and Friday 11th August 2017 at Woodcroft Studios, Cardiff Bay and the strings element recorded at Acapela Studio, Pentyrch Cardiff.

 

All of this was done under the watchful collaborative eyes and ears of renowned music producer Lee House

‘Waves’ EP is an eclectic mix of Pop/Indie/Country and Rebecca has once again been able to write and perform songs of  real complexion with lyrics that are thought provoking and a reflection of all of our lives – maybe.

It is here that there should be a massive shout out to everyone involved in the Forte Project this year. Rebecca was one of a number of artists who have received special support and mentoring this year..

There is no doubt that Forte Project 2017 is a huge benefit to all those artists involved. The Forte Project mentors and staff are doing all they can to uncover and support the next bright young things in music emerging from South Wales.

BTW if you want to hear Rebecca performing some of the new tracks from ‘Waves’ go to The Moon on November 27th where she may well play acoustic versions of some of the new songs. Rebecca will be supporting Kerri Watt along with Naomi Rae.
