In 2019, she has already reached 100,000 Spotify streams and sold out Belfast’s The MAC Theatre, her biggest headline show to date with a capacity of 350. With rave reviews, full band, string section, and light show, it set a daring new tone of where she is headed. Her dynamic multi-instrumental live shows, complete with mesmerising live-looping, flute, and powerful vocals, have attracted serious attention and are now in constant demand. Live show highlights also include performing for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, playing in the SSE Arena Belfast, and in a sold-out Koko in London, as well as a self-organised 9-date tour of the UK and Ireland.
Music from her debut and sophomore EPs was praised by the likes of Clash Magazine (including two video premieres), The Thin Air, Hot Press, Nialler9, and more. She has gained commercial success with playlisting on FM104 (as their Select Irish Artist), Cool FM and U105, in addition to performing live sessions on BBC NI, Sky One, UTV, and BBC Radio Ulster. She was included in Hot Press Magazine’s “Hot for 2019” list, and The Thin Air’s “19 for 19” list, was awarded the PRS Foundation’s Lynsey De Paul Prize and Help Musicians Transmission Fund, and was one of five nominees for the NI Music Prize Oh Yeah Contender Award (best emerging act).
A firm advocate for mental health, Rebekah’s recent release, Need To Feel, was picked up by tens of thousands on Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist, made No. 6 in Chordblossom’s Top NI Releases and No. 88 in The Thin Air’s Top Irish Releases of 2018. The video for the track sparked a strong reaction of admiration online due to the bravely honest narrative surrounding her own journey with mental health.
