Rebecca Correia is a genuine force of nature - one who fiercely outshines the current avalanche of artificially manufactured stars.
An intensely gifted artist whose otherworldly voice conveys her immense heart and keenly crafted songs, she is an artist's artist, a writer's writer, yet one whom growing audiences adore and call their own.
Her exquisitely sung, passionately performed songs reveal an emotional immediacy eagerly shared by her listeners.
In Nashville parlance, she is a triple-threat, that rare combination of talent realized in one person: a soulful songwriter, a feverishly adept musician and a phenomenally gifted singer, which is likely what led Vance Gilbert to call her 'a broken winged angel' after their first shared performance.
She's a young veteran whose artistry stretches back 15 years.
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. Within a few years, she completed her studies and earned her degree at the prestigious Hartt School of Music and expanded the reach of her live performances in cities all across America, from Boston and New York to Miami and Los Angeles.
With well over 200 songs to her credit, she's released five indie CDs, including the critically-acclaimed *Miss You* and solo acoustic tour de force *Soul of Me*, which was recorded live at Sirius Satellite Radio in New York City in 2009.
The growing list of major artists who've welcomed Rebecca as their opener reads like a veritable Who's Who, and so far includes Natasha Bedingfield, Shawn Colvin, Livingston Taylor, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Vance Gilbert, Melissa Ferrick, Cliff Eberhardt, Tracy Bonham, Jessie Colter, Freedy Johnston, Reel Big Fish, Black Eyed Peas, Raining Jane, Ryan Cabrera and Lucy Kaplansky. Brian McKnight bandmate Matt Cusson and Universal Republic recording artist / Inaugural Winner of NBC's THE VOICE Javier Colon are among the close friends with whom she often shares stages.
Currently splitting her time between Rochester and Nashville, Rebecca averages a hundred shows each year. Whether performing solo acoustic guitar and piano, backed by bandmates or set amidst fellow songwriters in the round, her performances are equally mesmerizing.
