It was almost accidental the way renouned singer / songwriter, Rebecca Helmer began making her way
up the ranks in the music industry. She grew naturally writing music on the piano and guitar,
and her first public performance at the age of eight perhaps prepared her for baring her songs
for tens of thousands through her career. Though it wasn’t until she appeared in a
humble college town studio just after her teens to record a handful of her compositions
that her career took flight. Word spread like wildfire and students
wanted to know where they could buy her CD. She reproduced copies, at first by the hundreds,
and then by thousands and sold them at her increasing number of performances.
Through her career, she has performed nationwide,
as well as on televised and on air performances with a style not easily mimicked.
After her original, self-titled acoustic album sold out in a few months, she produced her
sophomore album, Intrigued, which
has drawn the same acclaim from fans. On the album, Rebecca
shocases her vocal range and control with songs that come from
the depths of her soul, and others that flow soft and flirtatiously
over catchy guitar hooks and delicate piano pieces.
Her newest CD, Desire features a more sensual side
of Rebecca's writing that exhibits her powerful, sultry voice that has been likened
to the soulful sounds of Alicia Keys, and the passionate purity
of Sarah McLachlan. Her music is a provocative and intriguing hybrid
of pop, rock, folk, and soul which critics define as simply beautiful,
and agree "...this woman is going places..."
