Welcome Home, Rebecca!
A celebration for the release of "Wings"
Friday, May 7 at 7 pm
Rebecca Conner stands out in the world of singer-songwriters. As a jazz-trained guitarist and vocalist she utilizes her breadth of musical knowledge to draw from a multitude of genres and influences. World-beats and funky grooves intermix with soulful horns and folk delicacy. Rebecca’s heart centered, velvet vocals are delivered with a vulnerability that unravels listeners down to their core. With music as her catalyst for transmuting pain into healing, she holds space for the embers of gratitude and optimism to be ignited into a flame you can warm your soul to.
Rebecca, now residing in Portland, OR, returns to her hometown Lincoln City to release her debut album "Wings". After over a decade studying jazz in college and playing in bands, Rebecca's new project of original music is her most authentic sound yet. Conner is backed by a band of some of Portland's finest jazz musicians including Grammy winning trumpeter Charlie Porter. Leon Cotter, her partner and co-creator is on keys and horns, Arcellus Sykes is on bass, and Kirk Kalbfleisch is playing drums.
Rebecca Conner is supported by Portland songstress Eugenia Riot opening the show.
