This Canadian Folk Music Awards and Edmonton Music Awards winner writes original music that showcases her powerful vocals, storytelling, and thought provoking lyrics. With her red hair and red guitar, she brings fire to every performance. Her songs crackle with originality, blaze with passion and glow with honest emotions.
With her debut single titled ‘Poison Rose’, Rebecca charms us with her very energetic voice and inspiring story. Known to be a power-vocalist, the young singer from Edmonton, Alberta will have your mind ridden with catchy and unforgettable melodic hooks in this song. Lappa forged a very cerebral lyric which is popping with loads of fabulous imagery ... all based on love's explosiveness and the imminent dangers from a "femme fatale" who will always let you go in the end. An outstanding debut with heavy rock guitars pounding on a driving beat - a hint of Kelly Clarkson but much more. One of the finest vocal performances on a debut single one could imagine.
Always improving her songcraft, Lappa was selected for the SOCAN Songcamp Monday in Toronto in 2018, SOCAN Song House at BreakOut West 2017 and 2018, the Open Chair for the Songwriters Association of Canada Songworks Camp in Edmonton in August 2016 and the Prairie Winter Songwriter Retreat in Winnipeg in February 2016. She’s collaborated with notable songwriters such as Darryl James (The Strumbellas), Amy Kirkpatrick, Japeth Ryan Raw, Kellie Loder, Guilermo Subauste, Nuela Charles, Jay Semko, Mariel Buckley, Chloe Albert, Dana Blayone, Rob Heath, Beth Portman, Byran Finlay, Lexi Strate, Lynn Tessari, Doug Folkins, and with producers Dan Davidson, Davor Vulama, Troy Sampson, Tomas Brabec and B. Morales. Lappa has begun writing music for Cymba Music Publishing in Toronto, wedding songs for Hitched Creations in Edmonton and was commissioned to write a theme song for the No Stone Left Alone Memorial Foundation.
With all these amazing experiences Rebecca has under her belt, it’s only a matter of time before we see her on the mainstream level, as we are sure she has everything to pop and make a name of herself in the music industry. And of course, she’s off to a great start. Watch out for Rebecca Lappa!
