Having released her debut solo album Don’t Sleep (Artrocker Magazine Album of the Month) in October 2012, London-based Rebekah Delgado has gathered plaudits on radio (BBC Radio 2, 6 Music, Amazing Radio and more in the UK, US and across Europe) and online (The 405, GIITV, AltSounds, The VPME to name a few).
When playing live Rebekah is often accompanied by a variety of other musicians, including musical saw, violin, trumpet, harmonium, cello and drums – in addition to the audience-participating ‘Drunk Choir’. Influenced by her Spanish roots and Arabic leanings as well as artists such as Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Patti Smith, Serge Gainsbourg, Pulp, Jacques Brel, Johnny Cash and Sonic Youth, Rebekah’s musical maelstrom veers from the melancholic and contrite, to the uplifting and spirited, to risqué pop.
