Rebecca comes to the Rear Window Listening Room highly recommended by Raina Rose who has shared the stage with her many times. Rebecca's lyrics are witty & she has remarkable taste in matching those lyrics to sweet melody.
Rebecca Loebe is a laid-back award-winning indie-folk singer from Atlanta, GA. Since quitting her job as a full-time recording studio engineer in 2006, she has performed 100+ shows per year at colleges, coffeehouses and theaters in over 30 states of the US and in Europe. She has garnered rave reviews for her high-energy performances, weaving together skillful, emotional songwriting, folk storytelling and whimsical comedy for the ADHD generation.
In the May of 2009 she was honored as a winner at the Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition, and in 2010 her full length album 'Mystery Prize' spent over 2 months on both the US and European Americana Charts. In the UK, Mystery Prize received a 4-star review from Maverick Magazine, which reported the "sophomore album sparkles and bubbles." Ed Muitjens of Johnny's Garden in The Netherlands wrote, "'Mystery Prize' exhales originality and creativity." Of Rebecca herself, TX music critic Jeanna Goodrich said, "Her voice instantly took my breath away; I could tell right from the start: Rebecca Loebe was born for this."
