The new EP reflects upon Rebecca’s experiences on the road encompassing American roots music.
“You and I” is taken from the “Bright City Lights” EP out now.
It’s a doughy-eyed, piano-accompanied ballad — but never subdued.
With compassionate light & intelligent shadow it’s brought into being by a poignant voice. There is electric power in the higher notes and the lower places are a warm-hearted mix of husky allspice and cocoa butter. Transformative.
