Wave has been writing and performing for more than 27 years. From singing
folk songs on the front porch while her father played an old guitar, she
progressed to years of piano and cello lessons, stage and choral
singing and playing recorder on the roof. She found herself with guitar
in hand at 23, singing songs that percolated up from the flood plains
and tidepools of her life. After a long period of traveling the country
with various cats, dogs and people, and working a stunning variety of
day jobs, Rebecca has stayed in Santa Barbara long enough to raise four
children and record five albums. Her style has been influenced by
(almost) every genre: classical, pop, jazz, rock, folk, alternative, gospel,
yiddish, blues, r&b, world music, techno... What has emerged is a
direct, passionate voice with a lot to say about grief, joy, confusion,
clarity, love and lust. Melodies as simple as a childhood dream or complex
as an extended jazz riff deliver lyrics that cut to the heart.
