REBECCA CORREIA is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter, who Vance Gilbert called a "broken-winged angel" after their first shared performance, is a young veteran with already over 200 songs to her credit.
Most recently, Rebecca co-wrote the song "So Long Goodbye" with three-time Grammy-winner Keb' Mo', which has been included on his latest album Bluesamericana, currently #1 on the iTunes Blues Album chart.
"I got together with Rebecca Correia. I showed her the lyric and she put a melody to it. I think this song was so personal that I was emotionally paralyzed by it. Every word is true and honest." - Keb' Mo' in reference to their song "So Long Goodbye"
Growing up on a rural horse farm in the little town of Rochester, Massachusetts, Rebecca savored her natural surroundings and began writing songs at age nine. After having earned a degree in music education vocal emphasis from the prestigious Hartt School of Music in West Hartford, CT., Rebecca paved her way on the road, averaging 150 shows a year, from Boston and New York to Miami and Los Angeles. She now splits her time between Rochester, MA and Leipers Fork, TN (the haven for music lovers and legends just outside of Nashville), where she has been embraced as a formidable talent by fellow musicians and garnered a loyal following of discerning fans.
With five CD releases, including the critically-acclaimed "Miss You", Rebecca shows her burgeoning skills as not only a singer and songwriter, but as a fledgling record producer, bringing on board an illustrious group of musicians that includes Reggie Young, Matt Cusson, Chris Loftlin and engineer/mixer: Dave Matthews & Gary Cirimelli. In addition to her studio albums, a solo acoustic album of her original tunes, "Soul of Me", was recorded live at Sirius Satellite Radio in New York City and quickly became a favorite amongst her fans.
A dynamic performer who accompanies herself on guitar, piano and mandolin, Rebecca has opened for a wide and varied number of artists, including Natasha Bedingfield, Shawn Colvin, Livingston Taylor, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Vance Gilbert, Melissa Ferrick, Cliff Eberhardt, Tracy Bonham, Jessie Colter, Freedy Johnston, Reel Big Fish, Raining Jane, Ryan Cabrera, Lucy Kaplansky and Howie Day. She also regularly shares the stage with good friends Matt Cusson (Megan Hilty, Brian McKnight) plus fellow Hartt alumni Javier Colon (Inaugural winner of NBC's The Voice).
