Making music from no age at all, Rebekah is a self-taught and classically trained pianist, self-taught guitarist and vocalist from Belfast. After years of songwriting and looking for band members but to no avail, Rebekah (aged 16) decided to take to the stage as a solo artist in March 2014. She played an open mic slot at a Volume Control event in Belfast's Oh Yeah Music Centre and since then has gained prestigious slots at Culture Night including Dawson's block party, His New Atlas' single launch, Love Coffee in Lurgan and subsequent Volume Control shows. By the end of 2014, Rebekah had shared the stage with big names such as GO WOLF, Freak's, Not Squares, Travis is a Tourist, Owen McGarry, New Ancestors and The Emerald Armada as well as making multiple appearances on radio stations including Blast 106 and Queen's Radio.
In December 2014, Rebekah recorded her debut EP with Michael Mormacha and James Lyttle of Mojo Fury in Millbank Studios. Her debut single taken from the EP - "Nothing (Me & You)" - was released in February 2015 with the EP release following in April.
Rebekah's demos and single have received much praise from the likes of Chordblossom, Folk & Tumble, Encore NI, Gigging NI and The Metaphorical Boat and her upcoming releases are anticipated to create as much hype as what has come before.
"Startlingly assured for one so young, Wilson's clarity and tone are filled with promise" - Encore NI
"With such a prodigious talent, Rebekah is only going to get better over the next few years." - The Metaphorical Boat
"Reprieve is a delightful dichotomy of hard ansd soft. It's a little bit pop, and a little bit punk; think PVRIS or Paramore; and is utterly enjoyable." - Gigging NI
" Rebekah Wilson is destined for something big. 'Reprieve' would be a triumph for any musician, regardless of age." - PastieBap
