The North Carolina-bred, New York-based singer/composer/guitarist’s status as a lifelong music-maker is more than apparent on the Becca Stevens Band’s Sunnyside debut Weightless. Although she’s already won significant acclaim for her membership in Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra and her prestigious collaborations with such esteemed musicians as Taylor Eigsti and Brad Mehldau, the sparkling 12-song set reveals the accomplished young songstress to be a startlingly original, refreshingly distinctive talent in her own right.

Stevens’ work has already received copious praise from the likes of The New York Times, who described her as “a best-kept secret” and called her debut indie release Tea Bye Sea “impressively absorbing.” The Boston Phoenix noted Becca’s “big voice and no-bull—- emotional delivery.” Her hometown paper The Winston-Salem Journal stated, “Stevens’ singing is remarkable, soulful, pitch-perfect and subtle in its controlled acrobatics. The arrangements are exquisitely produced, and her acoustic songs boast musical textures and colors that embrace the adventurism of jazz.”
