|Becca Gohn is an emerging artist and singer-songwriter whose
voice captures both the flirtatious brassiness of singers like
Billie Holiday while embracing the sweet innocence of pop
artists like Donna Lewis. Her distinctive song-writing blends
thought-provoking lyrics and engaging melodies with her
unique and captivating vocals, giving rise to an overall musical
style that brings a refreshing twist to the genre of adult
contemporary music. With strong influences in both jazz and
pop music, her song-writing and vocal approach often detour
more prominently into those areas. Her background in
classical music and the subtle blending of folk influence can
also be perceived upon a closer listen to her music.
Becca's debut album "Recollections", released in 2002, was her
first major undertaking into the world of recording. As an
independent artist, Becca wrote, financed and co-produced
this twelve track collection of piano and vocal ballads with the
help of fellow singer - songwriters, Andy and Denise. With a
full-time career in accounting to "pay the bills", this endeavour
was no small feat for the young artist.
Six years following her debut, Becca has delivered a stunning
follow up with her most recent venture, a five song EP
recorded at Morning Star Studios with Grammy®
Award-winning producer Glenn Barratt. "Glimpse" is a five
song collection of creative and memorable songs that will
inspire and warm your heart, featuring the sultry "It's Always
You" and the inspirational "Into the Blue".
|Becca’s interest in music began at a young age with musical theatre and study in classical piano and voice. She
started writing songs at the age of twelve, drawing inspiration from artists such as Joni Mitchell and Bette Midler.
During her formative years, Becca performed in numerous singing groups including Savoir Faire, a collegiate a
cappella group, the Penn State Concert Choir, and she fronted both jazz and rock bands. In addition, she received
first place awards in various local and regional singing competitions and performed the national anthem for high
school and college events. Nowadays, Becca spends her spare time enjoying her continued efforts in song-writing
and can be found performing at live music establishments in the Delaware valley and surrounding areas.
