The captivating voice of Becca Stevens glides fluidly across notes, now and then taking an unexpected plunge. She is able to create something new by combining the adventure of jazz with the ambience of folk. The singer-songwriter grew up in a musical family in North Carolina: at the age of two she was already singing in the family band Tune Mammals. Stevens studied guitar at the North Carolina School of the Arts, and afterwards jazz and composition at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York. It was there that she met the musicians of her band: accordionist-keyboardist Laim Robinson, bassist Chris Tordini and drummer-percussionist Jordan Perlson. Apart from singing, Stevens plays guitar, ukulele and charango. Hailed by The New York Times as a "best-kept secret", the question is how long she will remain one. Established musicians have already discovered her: Brad Mehldau played with Stevens at Carnegie Hall in 2011.
