BRIC presents acclaimed, Brooklyn-based singer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Becca Stevens to BRIC House on March 30, 2017.

Always reaching, always expanding, Becca Stevens – whom The New York Times describes as a “best-kept secret” and “impressively absorbing” – reinvents herself once again with her latest album, Regina.

In the years since the release of her critically acclaimed third album, Perfect Animal, Stevens has undertaken a journey that began with a study of Queen Elizabeth I as inspiration for a commission to write a concert of new music, which expanded into tributes to various queens from history, literature, folklore and her own imagination. The result is a collection of songs inspired by the regal and divine, and finally Regina as a voice, like a trusted friend or an alter ego.

Stevens’ style has always evaded categorization, and with Regina, even more so. One hears pop, rock, R&B and funk side-by-side with traditional Appalachian and British folk, classical, world music, and jazz. Intricate instrumentation and rhythms seamlessly intertwine with vocals and melodies that work their way into your brain. Stevens has been compared to Bjork, St Vincent, Tori Amos and Joni Mitchell and is certainly making her mark on the international music scene in a big way, establishing herself as a long term and important artist for the future.

Special guests at this performance include Mike League (Snarky Puppy), Michelle Willis (Lighthouse Band), Jo Lawry (Sting) with Chris Tordini, Jordan Perlson & Liam Robinson (Becca Stevens Band).


Tickets for this event are on-sale now via BRICArtsMedia.org.
