She calls herself a singer-songwriter, but as soon as Rebecca Loebe leans into the first notes of Give Up Your Ghosts, her first release for Blue Corn Music (Feb. 8, 2019), that definition starts to seem woefully inadequate. Rebecca Loebe is not just another talent. She’s a sophisticated, mature writer with a relevant point of view, who has earned a legion of loyal fans through a solid decade of performing.

Her national touring career was launched by a win at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival songwriting competition, and her radical reinterpretation of Nirvana’s ‘Come As You Are,’ made her an instant fan favorite on the first season of The Voice on NBC.

But timing and delivery alone don’t make an artist. There’s got to be substance as well, and Loebe fearlessly probes the rawest corners of her psyche to find it. “There’s a lot of me talking to myself,” she says. “I’m writing a lot of empowerment jams these days, and I think it’s because it’s what I need. I’ve written albums full of what I needed to say, but this album is full of songs I need to hear.”

And now she’s on a guerrilla mission to share messages others need to hear as well. “I like to write catchy songs about topics that are meaningful to me, but use fun hooks to put words in people’s mouths,” Loebe admits. “My favorite thing is to get people singing along before they even realize they’re singing about women’s equality or their own self-worth.”

Loebe is touring with her full-band this spring, don’t miss the chance to catch this award-winning songwriter and internationally recognized singer in concert, as she celebrates the release of her fifth studio album Give Up Your Ghosts across the US and Europe.
